So! It’s my birthday!
Yup, that time again to reflect!
Shed some tears, laugh out loud and walk in silence.
Growing older has been quite the journey for me.
Aging, well that is another matter altogether –
Here are some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Laugh out Loud without apology
Enjoy the noise
Say yes more often
Say no and mean it
It’s okay to change your mind
Accept the apology
Stand for something
This too shall pass…
Though in no particular order I have learned how to live in these moments. With them, I have grown and become more of the person I was created to be. It has come at a high price of letting things go and accepting new ideas.
I have found myself stretched at times to the point of breaking, yet I never do. I have found myself at the point of a breakdown, yet it never happens. I have found myself at the point of complete and total loss, yet I find myself.
That is part of growing, maturing and accepting.
So Happy Birthday to ME! – To another year where life will be unpredictable, eventful and full of EXPECTATIONS!!! I accept it all.
Enjoy YOUR journey…it was created just for YOU!!!
