I love the phrase BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED since blooming involves growing, being nurtured, and sharing with others. I am a huge goal-maker and list-follower. Today is my birthday. I love birthdays and take it like a checkpoint and new beginning. I was excited to find a link to a neat concept called Create Your Best Life. I started this morning and am excited about the next three months!

Here is a great checklist I stole and revised from Julie Valentine, the creator of Create Your Best Life. I added spending daily time with God in prayer and the Bible. When things seem to get bad, that's when I realize that I am not doing the most important thing. Funny how that happens...
Thank you all for being a part of my life. I am blessed in so many, many ways! This is a good birthday!
