Happy New Year! and happy new age :)
Firstly the older I get the more I see, the more I am shocked by, and the more I realise the true privilege of celebrating your birthday. As you can probably tell from my LOUD personality I have always been extremely excited by my birthday (not sure why because I never get gifts! everyone is too broke from Christmas and new years eve). Since turning 25 I have been a complete misery guts not so much because I was getting older but more so because I had allowed the weight of the world and my own expectations, suck the life out of me (ironic).
But in the past month I have realised just how lucky and accomplished I am to have made it this far. I had a plan, I was meant to meet prince charming at 17 we would start from the bottom together, at 25 he'd propose (I'd act shocked, naturally) we'd spend 26 travelling and designing our home and by my 27th birthday (TODAY) I would probably celebrate with brunch because thats the only event where no one else would drink and all my girls would look as rough as me minus the swollen feet. . . . . .
Its easy to get lost in "it was supposed to be like" and hard to revel in "it is".
I celebrate today (and everyday). Glory be to the most high for creating and loving me. I am so overjoyed to reach this new milestone in good health and with an abundance of genuine wealth. 27 ...... I'm going to enjoy you.
