Today, I turn 28.
Happy birthday, me!
I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging in the same spot for so long that I can look back on my 23 birthday and see where I was in life. It’s amazing the change 5 years makes.
The funny thing is that I never would have predicted anything that happened in those five years. Whenever someone wants me to project where I’ll be in the next five years I refuse to answer because how do I know? Life is so unexpected.
All I know is that it’s been an incredible few years of personal growth. This last year especially has been so hard and so good that I can’t even believe it.
Birthdays aren’t always fun. Last year I cried on my birthday. When I was 19 I went to my beloved grandmother’s funeral. I cried then too.
This year I can’t do anything but smile because I’m so blessed by the people around me. I didn’t expect anything from today other than it to pass by unnoticed. Yet people in my life have stepped up and surprised me and cared for me and made me realize how lucky I am.
Thanks for reading and caring and being part of my life for however long you’ve been here. Love you!
