The countdown to my birthday has officially begun!!! That’s right ladies I have officially marked tomorrow, March 4th as #30Til33 as I will be 33 (Lord’s willing) on April 4th!!! **Que Trey Songz….Go girllllllllllllllll it’s your birthday** HA!! Okay let me get serious. Lol

Excuse my hype-ness but I’m just super excited about the anticipation of a new year of life. Don’t get me wrong year 32 was not terribly bad, but I did experience some losses that I pray I do not carry over into this new phase of life. Wow 33, just a few years away from being considered in my “mid-thirties” YIKES!!! I still have SO much that I want to accomplish and it seems as though life is just flying on by. So what have I done to prepare? I finally purchased a planner!! (I don’t’ think you all realize how much excitement this thing brings to my life!!! Showing my age again LOL!) This Happy Planner is my life and is truly helping me get control of my life! (Emphasis on happy because it makes me feel that way!) I write EVERYTHING down; I mean EVERYTHING down so that I do not forget one single detail of my day! From prayer/Word time, meetings, blog posts, date nights, preschool activities, reminder to text /call someone, on down to learning how to meal plan, this planner has helped me so much because I have to be honest my memory is not the best anymore. Life has become so busy and I can have the best of intentions to complete one task before I am distracted and start on another, never finishing the first! It drives me nuts! Woooo saaaa!!

With all that being said I’m going to take the next 30 days to once again reevaluate my life and those things that mean the most to me. I have some decisions to make within this next year….Do I want to try again at having another baby? Do I want to finish the graduate certificate program? Do I want to accelerate within my career or be more fervent at praying to become a homemaker? Bottom line is that I want to be an all-around better Katesha, not for anyone else, but for me. I want to wake up in the mornings, look at myself in the mirror and truly be proud of the woman that I am and therefore hopefully continue to push forward to try to make an impact on someone else’s life. I am in no way perfect, will never proclaim to be, but there is nothing wrong with striving to do better, striving to be better….I am woman hear me roar!! I want to be a better Christian, a better wife, a better mother, a better daughter, sister, friend, a better Kingdom worker, a better employee, a better cook, a better blogger….

So let the countdown begin… #30Til33…in 5….4….3…2….
