March, the offical month of amazing
I had meant to post this at the start of the month but the weather was spectacular and I couldn't bring myself to do much with my free time outside of walking on the beach. It has been an amazing way to get this wonderful month started! I don't know how long you have been reading my blog, so you may or may not know that I like to refer to myself as Miss Amazing and I am married to Captain Awesome. We came up with the names for when we do things like worry a ton when all of the sudden Claire doesn't seem to be able to walk when a few hours later we realize that her braces were on the wrong feet, things like that. Anyway, March is the month of my birthday. I've never been super big on celebrating my birthday. Last year Captain Awesome did surprise me and I very much enjoyed that. If I am honest, I was never super huge about my birthday because I just didn't think it was that big of a deal, that I was that big of a deal. I sit and write today, on the other side of a full-fledged identity crisis and can say that I finally get it. I am special, really everyone is, but that includes me too. How did I miss that? I don't really know but I know what started to change my thinking. I was reading a book and the author described humility as not being down on yourself but viewing everyone equally. This might not sound like that big of a thought, but it blew my mind. It started the unraveling that at first made things a lot more messy. Eventually I got most of it sorted out and am excited to get on and see what it looks like to live this out. So I am taking March to celebrate different things in my life that are amazing. It isn't hard to think of a list longer than what I could ever write about and I have become a bit of a beach bum, so we will see how this works out.
