BIRTHDAY SUIT




It was my birthday on the 1st of this month; I had a fun time with some friends as we spent the day at Lac Rose. However that being said in hindsight I would have left to go there in the morning in order to make the most of the whole day. A group of us went quad biking, more photos of the action on my Instagram. I would definitely recommend doing it.  



Seeing as it is Scorpio season when is a better time to do a little self-reflection?

Another year older and another year wiser, well so they say. I believe it is so easy to become daunted by birthdays the older you get. It seems like the perfect time to complain or even over analyze where you are at this current moment in your life. Or where you are not. What you thought you would have achieved by a certain age etc. I said those very same words over the phone to a relative on who called on my birthday. ‘I thought I would have done this by now’. They responded and said there is no need to benchmark anything. You can still achieve what you want to achieve.




I sometimes get caught up in timeframes that I have placed upon myself. Forgetting that everything doesn’t always go to plan or learning a new skill can sometimes take longer than anticipated. It’s a good idea to set targets but I need to remember I can continue to pursue the goal outside of the benchmark if need be. I’ve decided that rather than grumble at what I have not done, I’m going to use birthdays to reflect on what I have gained in terms of knowledge and experiences I have been enriched with throughout a milestone I have been fortunate enough to see.

Year of 24/ notes to myself:

- Enjoy it.
- Seize all opportunities without overthinking.

Here are some shots of my ‘birthday suit’ (or shall I say playsuit) that was tailored for me by Anne de la V.
