Well, outside my mother’s womb.
I guess it was nice being carried for a while.
For a tad over 200 days I was carried in loving arms
I crawled for about half that time,
Then I walked…
It wasn’t long after that I was running
And only on my 20th I started to fly.
Soaring and I don’t intend to stop.
I appreciate all aspects of my life.
The happy memories I made with my mom and dad and my siblings;
Fishing, farming, exercising, cooking, eating, camping, reading, singing and dancing,
Oh and fighting! 😄😄
And sometimes simply watching the stars until we fall asleep.
I got a few cracks along the journey no doubt,
But I always choose to dwell on the good stuff.
The happy places,
The happy memories.
Those are what I focus on.
I focus a lot on my future, the things I want to do for others
The lives I want to impact
The path I want to chart
I am happy, immensely blessed, and loved.
I am admired and appreciated by many and most importantly by myself.
I am resilient, full of life and love.
I love fiercely, an all consuming kind of love.
I have enough for me and enough to give.
I keep my own cup full.
It was only 4 years ago that I decided to start celebrating my birthday
Before, it was a burden. I was always sad and angry leading up to and on the day.
Why? Because I was an avid ‘saver’, always had money stashed away.
I love giving gifts, baking cakes and celebrating others.
And I actually expected they would return the love.
Well, it took about 15 years to learn that, it’s not who you give to that will give to you.
Even now, I still give of myself fearlessly.
It still hurts a little, knowing that the people you would want to celebrate you never does,
But hey, it is what it is.
I won’t let someone else’s selfishness change who I am.
I have found that it is those who know the feeling who tries their best to ensure no one else feels this way.
Perhaps that’s apart of why I give, who knows.
Well, I prayed for snow and a whole lot of it, and I got just that.
I had a glass of wine before breakfast 😀
I found a good human, a friend.
And I have every intention of reciprocating her kindness.
I’m getting honey garlic ribs for supper!
Now what more can a girl ask for? 😄😋❤️
I woke up with a purpose
As I do every other day.
And you know what that is,
To laugh as much I can,
To learn something new,
Do something crazy,
Do something nice for someone else,
And to chase my goals dauntlessly or not.
