A few weeks back, I turned 36. I celebrated in a number of awesome ways but the first (and the most exhilarating) way was jumping 10 feet off a diving board into 61 degree water.
The water was so cold it knocked the breath right out of you and I literally gasped for air as I made my way back to the ladder.
It was awesome.
Every year I try to come up with some goals around my birthday. Not so much resolutions- but things I want to be mindful of. My dive off the board inspired me. 36 is the year where I want to do things that scare me. I want to push myself to do things that make me uncomfortable and take me out of my comfort zone. I want to take classes. I want to learn a new skill. I want to try new foods and make new memories. I want to find more diving boards and jump in feet first.
So, here’s to a year of finding new ways to take my breath away.
