Happy Sunday! I’m having a lazy Sunday to be honest. The sun is out and shining, the palm trees are swaying, March is beginning to feel more like summer, and I somehow managed to get myself ready this morning only to find my way back into bed.
I shared with you on my Have The Courage To Fail In Order To Succeed post Wednesday that it was my birthday last week.Thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday, I felt spoiled rotten. I received some amazing gifts, spent a memorable night out with friends for drinks, appetizers, and a game of laser tag because that’s just what grown people do, and I received an unexpected present from my parents that took me by surprise.
My coworkers managed to surprise me with strawberry shortcake, my favorite and a chocolate bouquet They weren’t gluten or soy free, but what’s a birthday without some cake. I was good and had only a slice and gave everything else away.
My best friend gifted me with these cute pastel arm bracelets. I wear them everyday now.
As you know, I like blissful little sayings and books, and my best friend also got me this inspiring book written by Demi Lovato. It has a inspiring message for every day of the year. I particulary like the message for tomorrow March 3rd.
The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”
– Ayn Rand
But perhaps the most surprising gift of all was from my parents. My parents revealed to me they paid off $5000 on my student loans something I was not expecting. I almost wanted to give it back to them, because I felt as if it wasn’t their responsibility. They work hard and are very modest so for me that gift meant a lot. I won’t forget it.
So tonight I’ll wrap up my Sunday by making dinner and watching The Academy Awards, fingers crossed for Leonardo Dicaprio to finally win that Oscar that he’s been deserving of.
What’s your Sunday like?
