Today I am celebrating my ninth-twenty-fifth birthday. What a joy to have made it that far. Looking back, I’m extremely proud of my achievements, and I’m overwhelmed by the plethora of possibilities ahead.
I used to think that I was getting old. But I don’t feel the same way anymore. I am getting wise— I don’t worry anymore about like I used to. I take it one day at the time, and have the strong belief that it all will come together. I am much more confident, well rounded, appreciative and stress-free that I used to be. I also enjoy observing and analyzing the processes, people and life in general.
My opinions are much more fluid.
I’m open to change, because I have nothing to be afraid of.
Don’t get me wrong: it’s not easy everyday, I also get depressed sometimes, but overall there is no other place is rather be.
Happy birthday to me!
