Birthday Wishes


This weekend I’ll be blowing out my candles and making a wish to celebrate my 23rd birthday. There are so many things to wish for this year. I have so much ahead of me and so much behind me, and I’m really thinking I could use a little birthday luck. But I also feel like the world could use some wishes, too. A lot of wishes, if you ask me. I’m not sure exactly what my wish will be (I like the “in the moment” style of wish-making), but I think these words from the incomparable Maya Angelou do the trick:

“My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humor to lighten the burden of your tender heart.”

I’m off for a little birthday fun. Keep wishing! xo
