It wasn’t until I realized how wilted my petals were That I accepted the warmth Of the sun
Another year older, another year wiser? You ever take the time to think about all the crazy shit you have done in your life? I mean the stuff that only a few people who are close you know about, the stuff that you would never want your parents to know you did. I remember every single birthday I had (I mean outside of the 1-6 stage). I remember when I would stay out late, party, get drunk, and then one day I stopped. I focused on school, I found a job, I started this blog, and I found my confidence. See when I reflect back on the girl I was before I don’t think often about the heartache or mistakes I have made, I think about how strong I am. I have more mistakes to make, more chances to take, and more life to experience. There were moments when I did not know if I would see 25, to be honest I never really thought about being 25. I can remember feeling so depressed that I didn’t care if I lived to 25, hell there was a time I didn’t care if I lived to 20 but I did and I am thankful. The girl I was then and the woman I am now are two different people and by the grace of God I am still here. I am happy and proud of the woman I am and will be. So here’s to 25 years of life, it looks good on me, dontcha think?
