First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone for the lovely and heart felt birthday cards, texts, emails, and social media comments!
And for those who were super confused…I had a birthday on Saturday. Yes, the big 2-6 came and had a long conversation with me over shots of patron and strawberry margaritas. The older I get, the less excited I am about my birthday. However, this year was kind of “special” because I had a break through. An ‘ah ha’ moment regarding relationships, school, work, goals, hopes, dreams, etc.
Just when I thought I was having the worst year ever (July was pretty tough. Yes, one month ruined my whole year. I’m dramatic.) my birthday came around and the people that I love the most reminded me of how blessed I really am. How different my life is from one year ago that day. How much I had to look forward to. And why I should never give up.
I even got some cool gifts and great meals.
But anyway, how things happen will always remain a mystery to me. The decisions I make directly effect everything that I do, everywhere that I go, and everyone that I meet. There is no guide book to life; Just a series of wants and needs that we roam the earth everyday trying to fulfill. I think I’ve figured out my “path” …I saw the green light – I started running – and now I’m picking up momentum. God is good.
Side note. My mom said something profound the other day too — She asked me “What are you filling the spaces of your heart with?” ..I didn’t completely answer (partly because I’m sure she was being rhetorical). But thats a really good question right?
