Happy Saturday everyone!
Well, today is the day! I'm another year older and hopefully wiser! :)
The days leading up to this day have been fun. I kicked things off with a birthday brunch with some co workers, I worked on Thursday, and yesterday I had drinks with the bestie! Today, in a few hours, I'll be hosting a birthday dinner! Yay for me!
My mind keeps reminding me how things were so different last year.
On my last birthday, the days leading up to it were not so pleasant. I had a panic attack, I cried my eyes out, I didn't have a lot of money to my name, and I remember trying to pawn stuff that was valuable in my eyes only to realize it truly wasn't. My life was in chaos because then, I was chasing a dream. The only good that came out of it was the dinner my sister graciously took me out on. She will never know how much it meant to me. That birthday was totally different than the Vegas trip I had planned for myself. :p
One year later,I am so grateful to say that dream is a reality. All of my physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are being met. I am working in the profession I've chased since high school. Are things perfect? Absolutely not but I'll take this day! I'm happy because I've decided to be and no one else is in charge of my happiness except me. Sometimes it's about choosing the higher road. :/)
Would I change the events that occurred last year? As much as I want to say yes, I have to admit I can say no. If the things did not occur, I don't know if I'll be the woman I am today. Out of that great struggle, great accomplishments were made. I got to depend on a source that already overcame the world. I learned more about myself in a short period of time than I had in awhile.
So today, while celebrating with family and friends, I will enjoying myself and appreciating all 26 birthdays that have fought to become the woman I am.
Happy birthday to me and the other millions of people worldwide who share it with me as well!
