A very merry and super happy birthday to MEEEEEEEEEEE!! :D 

Yep, I am wishing myself a happy birthday!! And I don't care if it seems weird, because usually I spend my birthdays emotional and crying but I'm feeling pretty good today!!

I think because my life doesn't feel so pointless as it has every other birthday! I've been really pushing myself this year, trying new foods, going out on walks, talking to people that make me feel good and generally being more productive and getting stuff done! I feel like my life is making some progress and that's a reason to celebrate!!

I had two choices for today; do nothing like most days .....or.... really REALLY push myself! And that’s what I’m going for!! 

It may not seem like much to other people but these are all pretty big things for me...
So my plan for today:
  1. Finally make @marybottomley's pizza I've been meaning to make for ages!!! <3
  2. Go out of the house on a walk for more than 30 minutes!
  3. Make myself a birthday cake! 🎂
And if I happen to have a little cry, that's okay too <3<3<3

    You're all the best <3<3<3 Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's not been how I'd planned, in fact nothing has gone to plan :D But I'm learning to accept that life is messy and doesn't always work to plan :D 

    No @Marydoll5 pizza for me (I also noticed I tagged wrong Mary in my first post, sorry!!!!) it just hasn't worked but I am ordering a pizza for dinner so it's a semi-win!!

    Bringing up the rear with happy birthday wishes, @Biblioklept, it might not have worked out as you planned, but who needs plans. Hope you've relaxed & enjoyed your clean kitchen pizza. 💐🥂
