I have a rare opportunity: an entire weekend alone without any plans.

Usually, these weekends are few and far between, especially with one that just happens to fall on my birthday.

Me being me, I obviously want to celebrate, but I also don't want to let this time go to waste.

I have to remind myself that I won't figure out my entire life in the span of a few days, but I do want to stop and reflect on the past 30 years while also looking ahead to the next 30.

Up until this point, my life has been full of fumbling, experimentation, and learning things the hard way. As much as I want to continue exploring new things, I also would like to introduce another level of intentionality into the equation.

This doesn't happen by chance - it takes the foresight needed to block out the necessary time, which is what this weekend is for.

I will revisit and update long-term goals, review my habits (both bad and good), and put a plan in place so I can move forward with purpose.

I also plan on a having a drink (or two).
