It’s my birthday today.
It’s so weird to think that this time last year, I was preparing for a test and planning a small bubble party in my room with my friends later after the test. What’s weird about it?
I had never envisioned that the year that would follow would be filled with as many trials and tribulations as it has been. This year has been tough. There have been moments where nothing made sense.
I once found a word that I always go back to and it says; To all of the lights who chose to dim when I was in the darkness, thank you for teaching me that my own light is all I need.
I learnt a lot in the past few months that I thought I knew. My own light is all I need. This year has tested our lives in different ways. A Part of me knows that the year, along with all its challenges isn’t yet over. There’s a lot more to come.
And I guess when I say “Thank God,” I mean, “Thank God.” I have lots of reason to smile and be happy. Thank God I haven’t lost my sense self. Thank God I have love in my life. Unconditional love. A love that always gives and doesn’t ask for anything in return. Thank God I still have my close people. Thank God I have been given the opportunity to witness this day. Thank God I can still reflect and work for what I want.
So here’s how it’s gonna be; I would tell my inner self to keep going. To never give up. To have faith in my tremendous soul and love that bubbles within it.
To believe in all my dreams and hopes for the future and work towards them . As hard as I can. As loyally as I am capable of and to never set myself any limits or barriers. I’d tell myself to never be afraid of all the hurdles set before me because pounding heart inside me knows with certainty that I have the power to change my life forever.
I would tell my inner self that things get easier with time, and that life isn’t always going to be this tough, or bitter or difficult to get through. Yes, there will be a little bit of rain, but the sunshine will always follow.
As Ruby said; you don’t need to have everything figured out. You need to look at your own time – scale rather than focus on what others are doing with their lives. You should focus on you. You should direct your energy towards what makes you happy, to your goals, dreams, and what you want to do. Not what others are doing.
Remember when it comes to life and healing, other people aren’t your measuring tool. Your progress is, your insight is, your growth is, your smile is and your yesteryears are.
Yay! It’s my birthday once again! Wishing me, myself, and I amazing days ahead and full of God’s blessings. Cheers to more fulfilling dreams, cheers to more great articles, cheers to amazing future.
