Hello everyone, happy Wednesday. It is my Birthday today, so I am living it up!! Haha, it is actually a super low-key birthday. No dinner, no presents, just hanging out at home eating chocolates, dancing to Cardi, watching the jersey shore…
Around my birthday time, I like to reflect on the past year. I think back to what I have learned, how I have grown, what I can do better… I have learned that it is okay not to know it all. I have learned that the tough times shall past. I have learned that God’s plan, is THE plan. I have learned that I need to cut myself some slack. I have learned that it is okay to fail. I have learned that I don’t have to have to put up a front. I have learned that I should be myself to the fullest. I have learned how to stand up for myself at work. I have learned to be more articulate. I am learning to be at peace with myself. There is so much more, but most importantly, I am growing.
In the past, I had felt stagnant. Year after year melded together, and I begin to develop a fear of being stuck, never thriving, never accomplishing anything in my life. As they say, a year older, a year wiser. What I find most exciting about turning a year older this time around is being able to use what I have learned from this last journey and then applying such knowledge to any current situations. My eyes have opened to a wealth of knowledge that wasn’t there before or maybe I was just not seeing it? Is this weird that I find it invigorating that I am getting wiser? Who would have thought that this would be the most lively part of this birthday! This month of May has been heavy yet exciting for me. Celebrated the 20th anniversary of the accident, which I wrote about here. Moved about a week and a half ago, had surgery 2 days after I moved and now it’s my birthday. So it’s basically a chill day for me! I cannot even drink my bottle of wine until two weeks after surgery, ugh. The real celebration starts in NOLA next week anyways! Thank you all for your kind words and Birthday wishes, you make my heart full of joy and thank you for reading, xo!
