I think this is a really big deal, but I’m not quite sure.
On Sunday November 9th I’m turning 18! For the past few years, birthdays haven’t been a huge deal for me. But, as this one approaches, I can’t help but get excited. My mom planned a surprise for me and my best friend in NYC for the day. She knows I’m not a fan of the city, but she assured me I would have a good time…
Regarding presents, I really can’t think of what I want this year. Over the past year I’ve been less interested in material items. I’ve sorted through clothes, jewelry, books, and even equestrian related items to get rid of what I don’t absolutely love and need. I’m really digging this minimalist lifestyle that I’ve taken on.
Anyway, this year for my birthday, I’m sure my parents will surprise me with a few presents, but I will definitely have to consider them as “replacements” rather than “additions.” For example, if I get a blouse, I will look through my closet and donate my least favorite blouse to make room for the new one (assuming that I love it more).
Now here is where horses come in. One thing that I would choose over all the “stuff” in the world, is having that one special horse. When I said earlier that I didn’t know what I wanted for my birthday, I take that back. I want to lease Angel again. What do I want for Christmas? To lease Angel. I’m not sure if this sounds immature or not, but I assure you I feel somewhat more mature as my 18th birthday approaches.
Also, as I am quickly approaching legal adulthood, I’m starting to think of what that entails. Perhaps I should stop thinking about asking to lease Angel again and start forming a plan to buy a horse? Who knows…..
