I know, I know. Those of you who are any more than one year older than me are gonna be rolling your eyes telling me I’m being a drama queen. And anyone who’s younger than me is probably like, “WHOA, I’d be freaked out, too!” hahaha 😉

So, I turn 28 today and I’m conflicted. I feel really positive and excited about where this year is going, but there’s a little nagging voice in my head that’s getting on my nerves… I feel like there’s so much that I wanted to accomplish by now that I haven’t! Honestly, not necessarily even things that I actively WANT that I don’t have, just things I THOUGHT I’d have… does that make any sense?! For example: I always thought that 28-year-olds were supposed have babies. I know people who have three and FOUR babies and I don’t even have one. I don’t event WANT one though! It’s more the fear of getting another 5 years down the road and thinking about what else I might not have that I think I’ll have by then.

Does this make sense? Am I just insane?! Actually– don’t answer that 😉

It’s not that I’m ungrateful for what I do have either. I feel BEYOND fortunate to have been given the life that I have, so it has nothing to do with gratitude. It’s just that feeling of the time flying and getting freaked out by the concept that I’m almost 30!

DRAMA ALERT. I know.

I wanted to have a Bad Yogi Birthday Party with all of you and thought, “I should have Bad Yogi Goodie Bags!” Since I can’t see all of you in person and eat candy and ice cream and cake and PIZZA, I thought the next best thing would be a digital Goodie Bag, so here we are 😉
