HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAREST SELF!!!
Last March, I opened another chapter in my book of life - 27 years of blessed existence. I may not seem to have everything at this age but first and foremost, I am very much thankful for the life that God has given me. I admit, the past year has been one hell of a challenge for me but if there's one thing that I appreciate the most from all the obstacles I've been through, it's recognizing the value of gratitude.
As I turned 27, a lot of people assumed that my birthday wish was to finally find the love of my life. Yes, it may have been the only thing missing as of now, but I do believe that God has His clever ways of teaching me valuable life's lessons before He handed me over to the one He intended for me. Although I sometimes miss the feeling of having someone special to take care of, call me a hypocrite if I don't, I am thankful for the time being - the gift of solitude - a much-needed time to re-establish myself before I allow opening my heart again to another.
