Anna’s Birthday Wish

Anna’s Birthday Wish

It’s my birthday week.  I am turning 38.

I was thinking about what I want this next year to look like. It’s funny how when I was in my twenties I always wanted to look and be older. For some reason, I thought people would take me more seriously. And maybe that is true!

Now that I am getting closer to my 40s, I love being my age.

So for this next year of my personal, family, and professional life, I picked a theme. And my theme associated with the word “Focus”.

Becoming a mother, taught me a lot, especially how valuable my time is, how little of it I now have it for myself. I joke with Yuri a lot about how reminding him how we used to have so much ample time on our hands and what did we do with it?!

This coming year I am focused, laser-focused on what is most important!

Personally – my physical and mental health. My beauty and appearance. I want to have lots of energy, vibrancy, and strength. Daily exercise and healthy diet is my goal.

Family– I want to remember every moment I have to spend with Liam. He is 2 and the time is just going by so fast. So being more present in moments I am with him. Intentionally present.

Yuri and I are back on regular weekly dates:)

Business – We just had our annual retreat with my team, set goals, welcomed 2 new members to our team. It’s now 7 women and one man on my team. Everyone is excited that we confirmed and decided to work with certain types of clients (younger families in their 30s & 40s), the type of services we are going to work, how we going to deliver them, and what we all want the MainStreet brand to be. We are also all working on developing our professional brands as well. 

My finances – this next year is all about growth! We bought a new home last year, did a huge remodel. Now it’s time to focus our efforts on growing our wealth. I want to be intentional with how we invest our money, both for longer-term, retirement, and midterm in our brokerage account.

That is what I am thinking about. I am recording this episode as Liam taking a nap. We are off to Tahoe this weekend to show him snow for the first time. It’s gonna be fun!

What is your birthday wish for yourself this year?
