Birthdays are a day of reflection for me - a moment to think about how much I’ve accomplished, learned, and grown in a year. This year in particular has been full of intense experiences - overwhelming, at times - and I found myself in a state of mind yesterday that I would not have expected.
I think the biggest obstacles I’ve worked through involve letting go of insecurity, embracing fear, and becoming more comfortable with moments when I feel I am being led to a different path by a greater force. This year, I want to focus on trusting that force, and letting myself embrace my failures just as much as my gains. If something is meant to be, it will be - even if it doesn’t look like I thought it might. I’ve given up on clinging to the ideas of how I thought life SHOULD look, and I continue to learn that expectations often lead to disappointments.
I am incredibly grateful for all of the love and support you all have shown me. I can’t express in words how much it means to me when someone tells me I inspire them. Those are the moments I know I’m on the right path, and that give me energy and push me to get up and march forward every time I fall down. Thank you all for believing in me and inspiring me.
Life is beautiful, my heart is full. Cheers to another year of growth and inspiration.
