Happy Birthday to Me.

op·por·tu·ni·ty: a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success.

I thought long and hard on what I could get myself for this special day, because we all by ourselves presents right?! I figure the best present I can give myself (besides a new pair of William Rast's) is the gift of opportunity. To learn, to challenge, to advance and to grow...not to mention get to know myself a little bit more. I am opening a new door that will hand me all that has been mentioned.

Life is too short, I am healthy (which I can NEVER take for granted), I am surrounded by amazing supporters and I don't want to pass up a dream of mine for the sake of "fear"....so I bring on my own personal challenge for 2010, an opportunity long awaited for...diving in feet first OR the best way I know how!

Here's to the gift of aiming high and pushing the limits.....Life is GRAND!
