MAY THE BEST
OF YOUR PAST BE THE
WORST OF YOUR
Today’s my birthday and, although the weekend has been busy, it’s been lovely. I’m so grateful for the love that friends and family have been showing me, especially on my special day!
I’ve always been someone who adores her birthday because to me, each birthday is special! It means I’ve made it through another year and I look forward with excitement and anticipation for what the coming year will bring. I blow out the many candles with joy for the life I’ve been given and the life I have made, albeit with hard times, struggles and sadness, but coupled with love, light and gratitude!
I may not know where I’m going or what may come my way in the future, but I do know where I’ve been, what I’ve overcome and how strong I am. My faith in a life filled with love cradles me as the year ahead opens to possibility.
I don’t shy away from owning the years I’ve spent on this earth for each one has led me to the next, with a plethora of life lessons along the way. While some I could have sincerely done without, I am grateful for each of them for they changed me in ways that I have come to gratefully see as strengthening me.
I love deeply because of them, although as a Pisces, innately loving from my whole heart is how I’m built. Often I have felt the pain from love, but I wouldn’t change me.
I am who I am without apology, but instead with gratitude.
I think that’s what growing older is all about in the end. This aging process isn’t for sissies. That’s for sure. But there’s a momentous glee in looking back to see from whence we came and in looking forward to all the future blessings in store for us! Being in this precious present moment with the kaleidoscope of love surrounding me, my heart is filled to overflowing. I just feel so blessed!
So today, I’m sharing my virtual birthday cake with you dear blogging family! You’ve been on this life journey with me for many years and I’m ever grateful for your loving support, kindness and encouragement along the way!
May all of our wishes be fulfilled! Keep shining your heartlights!
