Today is the day. The day has finally come. Hello 29. As I went into my birthday weekend I thought I'd take it well. Turning 29 I mean. And I thought I'd wake up and be my chipper self. But when I started "thinking" and "pondering" I started feeling negative and down about it. Almost unlike my usual self. But hey, everyone needs a breakdown every now and then. And I had my first this weekend. And I sure hope my last but I'm not holding my breath on that. I did manage to look on the positive side. I managed to pray my heart out and feel peace. And so just remember, "Good things are yet to come". The picture above is just a reminder of that for me. My last portrait at 28. Right after everything fell apart only to be put back together again. I guess that's what falling up means.
I am thankful and counting my blessings...
and most importantly, a new start to be thankful for these and so much more.
I cannot regret anything behind me. Everything has led me here where I find myself loved. Completely loved. As I move forward, I know I'm not promised I'll live another 29 years. I feel a tremendous thankfulness for here and now. So I'm counting my blessings. 29 is going to be a great chapter in my life. I can feel it.
Thank you again dear friends for your sweet birthday wishes.
They mean the world to me
love and cake for you
