Friday morning, the start of a brand new month (and also the beginning of my 31st year!) was one of the best I’ve had in a long time.

By the time Mom picked me up to take me for my birthday massage shortly after noon, I had already accomplished what felt like a full day’s worth of things I wanted to do.

I’d gotten up at 5am to do my Miracle Morning routine (which includes meditation, visualization, affirmations, reading, writing a gratitude list, and exercise). I’d also written close to 1,000 words by 7:30am when I dropped Aaron off at work.
