All in all my birthday was simple and incredible! A happy day for a change just the way I wanted it, no frills no fuss. Instead of being in my usual sombre state as I mourned the days closer to my inevitable death while faking a pretty smile, I really felt so cheerful and grateful for all the wonderful people in my life and all the lessons I have learnt along with it. I am excited to be 22, to be older and to gain more and more lessons as I become the woman I was set out to be. Growing up is really complicated; its a whirlwind of heartbreak, happiness, confusion and insecurities, but at the end of the day its fun looking back at how we once thought of life and our outlook. So far I have learnt the most crucial lessons of my existence. I've learnt that heartbreak & disappointment - in all its forms- is the best and worst thing that could ever happen to you (but mostly the best). Disappointment is the fuel of ambition, with every bitter taste the longing for something sweeter will lead you on the path to it. I've learnt that every mistake is a lesson and if repeated you're just not learning it yet. Lastly, I've learnt that all success stems from absolution; it is never too late to seek forgiveness even from oneself and most importantly from the highest of higher powers. If you can forgive yourself as you forgive others (and vice versa) then you are standing on the pivot of success as a human being and from there the options are endless!
keep dreaming, keep believing.
