It's My Birthday

Thursday, August 13, 2015



I made it! Thank God I made it to another year on this beautiful earth.  Today marks my twenty-fourth birthday, and I must say it feels weird. It’s weird because I'm torn between feeling the effects of getting older and still feeling like I'm sixteen. Maybe it's the fact that I'm the only girl of my siblings, or that people sometimes mistake me for sixteen. But that's only when I'm not wearing makeup. Okay - I occasionally dress like a teenager. Some days I say, "Whoa, I'm almost thirty." True I'm jumping a big gap here, but my mind is always thinking far ahead. Also, it doesn't help when my youngest brother, who is eight years younger than me, says, "When I'm 20 you'll be 28." My response is, " Wow! Thank you sooooo much for that information, that I clearly didn't know." I still love him anyway.

Growing up, I often cried on my birthday. Don't ask why, because I don't even have the answer. Today, I say no way not this time. Besides, I'm getting to old for that. Plus, I'm working on my birthday.  I never make plans for my birthday, and I surely didn't make plans this time. The only thing I'm expecting is to have a peaceful and successful day. I want to let my hair down, feel the sun on my skin, and have the freedom to be ME. To be free, and to feel loved is the best present ever. It’s not the material things that make you happy, it's how you feel about yourself that brings you happiness. If it's your birthday today, I want to wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Have a great day, and enjoy the rest of your week!

Thanks for reading

  3. I am glad you didn't cry this year..... Birthdays can be so stressful and most people view them as a marker to have to do something big in there life. Some people use there age as a marker to get married or have children I think using an age as a dead line for something limits life. ~☆~> You did the right thing this year!! Live and Enjoy 😊
