“A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun.”
It’s another special day to be grateful. It’s my birthday!
It’s been a wonderful at the same time a tough year for me. I had my own share of bittersweet memories for the past 12 months — losing my grandmother, missing my dad, break-ups, disappointments towards my younger sisters, two adorable niece and nephew, acceptance, letting go, ups and downs in my career, meeting new friends, learning to love and trust again… I am personally proud of myself, and am very much grateful for experiencing those things. Those were just some of the things life has in store for me. I know, the future is uncertain but I am confident enough to go through them. “Bring it on!”
This morning before I headed to work, I went to the church with my boyfriend. I lit some candles (a Christian tradition), closed my eyes. On our way out, he asked, “What did you pray and wish for?” “Nothing. When I pray, I just tell Him how thankful I am for the gift of life, I rarely ask or wish anything,” I told him… It’s true. I have so much to be grateful for and I don’t need to ask for anything, because He knows best. He knows what my heart desires before I ask Him. He gave me countless blessings without me asking. All I want is His will to be done, and that He would use me for His glory.
I’m leaving you with this thought, “Today, I am not getting old, I am getting better.”
Love lots. :* ‘Ciao!
