Freedom Friday: The Juneteenth aka ThatKellieGirl’s Birthday Edition

Hey Good People!

If you haven’t figured it out, ThatKellieGirl’s Birthday is the weekend– specifically on Saturday.  And as I get older, I find that I am enjoying this journey more and more.  Each year, I feel more confident, joyous and passionate for living on purpose. It is an empowering and liberating thing when you know who you are and begin to live life on your terms.  Quite honestly, this blog has been a part of my process.  And I thank you for tuning in to this journey.  By sharing my thoughts, experiences, music and pictures, I hope to offer some inspiration to live life to the fullest everyday.  I want people to realize that it’s all about constantly shifting the scale between working and living.   We have to rearrange, add, subtract and multiply certain actions, people and things to ensure we are growing and becoming the person we were meant to be.  And celebrating my birthday affirms that I am on the right path.

Enjoy this glorious weekend.  I sure am! 🙂

And shout out to my beautiful younger sister celebrating her birthday today!

P.S.  This is an abbreviated listing (hey it’s my birthday weekend! 🙂 ), but I will be posting events on my Facebook page.  So please check there for more weekend happenings.

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl
