My Birthday

Some people look at birthday as a celebration toward life, While I look at my birthday as timer towards death...

Woa that sounds... pretty dark, but in my reality it is not. See how I look at it is a reason to cherish all my time in this world.  I live in a country of ample opportunity. Where there is enough opportunity to fill each moment with beauty, love, and happiness.

This may sounds deep, but it's not.  If you break it down it just doing more thing that I enjoy and my birthday is looked at as a milestone. Every year I expect to see personal growth, battlescars, new adventure, new friends, even new milestone. So what does my 24th birthday represent.

It represents inner peace and acceptance of who I really am. Not the facade that I aim to be. This past year I truly got to know who the person I am and the person I am becoming. It allowed me to capture emotional intelligence and to fight some of the demons, that were holding back. More importantly I taught me, how to be unapologetically me.

So how did I celebrate it this year? By forgiving my shortcomings and to become more focuse on my personal goals.

So the conversation starts here, What does your birth really mean to you and Why do you celebrate?

In the past 2 years i have been committed to do more with the help and support of loyal friends like you.
    Ralene you are a rare gem.
    Happy birthday dear.
