Happy BirthdayFor some reason, 31 is stressing me out.  Last year, I embraced 30 with gusto, had a blowout pink birthday party with a sleepover and all.  I ran straight towards the edge and jumped with arms wide open.  It’s been a busy year, lots of work and travel, 7 weddings, and I hope a bit of personal growth.  I said to my husband the other day that I felt like I just haven’t accomplished enough yet to be 31.  I can’t put my finger quite on what it is exactly.
I’ve always struggled with math. (this has a point and I’ll get to it shortly)  It’s never been my strong suit and I vividly remember crying my way through Algebra ¾.  Over the years, this led to a belief that I’d never have a strong grasp of anything to do with finances, analytical information, or business.  I knew this irrational fear of numbers had to end, so a few years ago I forced myself to start play sudoko.  I’m good at visual puzzles and I like grid paper, so I decided that if I could genuinely have fun playing sudoko, a game with numbers at the heart of it, that I could get over this silly apprehension.   It worked, and as I became better at the game, I became more confident in tackling projects at work and at home that I normally would have shied away from.

So, to turn my irrational fear on its head, I’ve compiled a list of things regarding the number 31 to inspire my recreational activities for the year.

  • Starbucks TrentaEnjoy a Starbucks Trenta sized drink, which is 31oz of coffee goodness.   The Huffington Post declares that it is bigger than your stomach, but I say just stick close to a restroom.

oh my gosh I'm so excited!
