I love my birthday. I usually get a long weekend and nice weather so my birthday has always been the celebration that kicked off my summer. There have been some birthdays were I felt anxiety about my age, or questioned my life.
But not anymore. This year, I am celebrating ME. I am happy with my life, with who I am. I am comfortable with where I am in my life. For maybe the first time ever in my life, I am confident in myself, comfortable in my own skin and optimistic about my life. I am happy to be 28 (bring on 30!). I am happy to be alive.
And I am determined to never again let any person or any organization or anything tell me who I am or what I am or what I should be doing with my life or what I should weigh or how I should dress or how I should feel or what I should look like. I have been held back for most of my life. No longer. no more promise no more sorrow no longer will i follow can anybody hear me? I just want to be ME. Today I am ME and I think that is a good thing!
