This is it. The day has come and gone. I just crossed over to a new decade. Gasp! Do I feel any different? Not really. I don’t know why I made such a big deal about turning 40 years old. Okay fine. I do know why. It was because I focused on the lack in my life instead of what I had, the blessings in my life. Whenever I looked at other people, I saw what they had and what I didn’t. I did stop to think of my blessings but somehow, it always felt like it wasn’t enough.
I am now a decade older and a decade wiser than my thirty-year old self. I had a great time celebrating my birthday with friends and family filled with love and good wishes. Here I am writing a belated birthday wish for myself for the coming year.
On this milestone birthday, I wish myself to always be the best I can be. From now until forever. It is a milestone not because I turned 40, but because I was able to process and let go of notions that weren’t helping me grow. It is difficult to be uncomfortable, but it is through this that I can know more about myself and accept myself. This way, I can be the person I really need to be, instead of who I think people want me to be.
I wish for myself to always be humble, grateful and to accept people and situations with an open heart. My wish is to always face the world with a smile because just one smile changes everything. I also wish to live for today, not tomorrow but TODAY because today is what I have. And what I am today is good. I am whole and complete right now.
Happy birthday to me! 😘
