Memoirs of my 27th birthday

I honestly, and wholeheartedly, wanted to write a post yesterday. Being that yesterday marked the start of my 27th year on earth (or I mean, the end of my 27th year? I just really confused myself… you turn one after you have been alive a whole year— so now I have been alive 27 years, so it’s the end, right?), Crazy to think I am now 27 years old! I couldn’t be happier with my life and very thankful for the people in it!

Yesterday was so perfect, we spent a nice lunch,we had a great time and good laugh together with my husband,our son,mother in-law and my sister in-law and watched my favorite movie the Final leg of Twilight Saga : Breaking dawn part 2 with my Hubby.It was a memorable day for me;)

But, in all seriousness, I feel so blessed to have reached the mark of a new chapter  in my life. I’m reminded that life is not to be taken for granted, and each day is a blessing from God. Sometimes life is just rough, and ya gotta deal with it. Period.

My mom’s birthday advice to me this year has been: “Enjoy each day, because it goes by so fast.Okay, great, I’m sitting here crying now as I type.
I’ll keep this short, because I can’t really see through my tear-filled eyeballs (haha)But I really can’t mention my birthday without thanking God for bringing me through this last year of my life, victoriously.

This past year has been good to me! I felt so passionate about pursuing my goals and dreams, and I felt so swamped by challenging circumstances. It’s been such a rough road on a personal level, but I know that there is a reward in the end, and I just need to keep pushing through.

Thank you, readers, for becoming friends, and encouraging me with your sweet words. I don’t really pour my heart out in my posts, because some things are too personal, but so many of you have left me comments that have brightened my day. It has meant so much to me.

I’ve been tempted to stop blogging so many times, because I feel like I just don’t have the time for it, but then someone will send me an email saying how much they value my posts, and it makes me realize that I don’t go through my life experiences for myself only, I go through them so that I can share my thoughts, insight, and what I’ve learned, even if it’s just simply for one other person to relate and know that they are not alone.

So I will continue to share, and hopefully I’ll learn some amazing things in my 27th year of life,
in order to pass on that knowledge.

Happy birthday to me!
(Thank you, God!)
