Some people freak out on their birthdays, not me, I typically embrace the new year and whatever number it brings.  No I freak out at the 6 month mark.  Happy 1/2 birthday, holy crap!  What have I done in the last 6 months and what do I still need to accomplish in the next 6 months to feel like it was a successful year.  It’s sort of ridiculous I suppose, but it’s me!

So here I go reflecting on the last 6 months, its by far been the most jammed packed, full of personal growth, and probably the happiest 6 months I’ve had in a VERY long time.  Of course there have been moments of intense heart ache, sadness, frustration, moments I just wanted to throw in the towel and give up, BUT overall, incredibly happy and full of hope.  So instead of freaking out about what I need to accomplish in the next 6 months, I saw this photo earlier today and have instead spent some time reflecting on it.  Here’s to hoping come December I can look back and be glad I didn’t panic and freak out about life.  Hmmm…focus on #8….focus on #8.  =)
