Happy 2018 – Day 89 – Happy Birthday? Collect memories, not things.

Just a quick blog today as it’s my 34th birthday and frankly, I think I deserve a rest.

Birthday’s, like New Years, always inspire me to reflect on where I am, where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned.

What I’ve really noticed over the last few Christmases and birthdays, is how much of a struggle it has become to answer the question: “What would you like?”

Because in terms of material objects, I have enough.

I have enough stuff.

What I’ve come to value more and more with each year are experiences.

Nowadays, it’s about an attitude of collecting “moments not things.”

Time spent with friends, family and loved ones is much more valuable to me than any object (though my inner-magpie is always hoping for some bling earrings!)

That’s it for today! Have a great day xx
