45 Things I Learned... 5

Thursday, January 19, 2023

Today is my 45th birthday. I feel great and happy. But that is not the main reason for me to celebrate. Age to me is just a number and a state of mind, which explains my eagerness to unlock the next "stage", i.e. an additional year in life. Lucky me, this year happens to be an odd number as I am not fond of even ones đŸ€Ș My soul might be ancient, but my spirit is the one of a 30-year-old. I firmly believe there always is a lot to be commemorated and many a thing that has been an inspiration. I cherish every joyful memory and keep in mind the teachings of life's lessons. So, as a general rule, birthdays never meant much to me, if it weren't for my baby sister who was born on the exact day and date 11 years after I came into the world. She constantly motivates and supports me, and is the best sister and friend one can ever wish to have! So here's to you sis, I am forever grateful that you always make my life meaningful and I am blessed to have you have my back 😘

God bless my sister...
and show her that you care.
She's laughed with me,
she's cried with me,
And always been right there.

God bless my sister...
She's stayed here by my side.
We've had the giggles at fun times,
and laughed until we cried.

God bless my sister...
She's truly my best friend.
Please send her all your blessings
And keep her safe, amen! (Anonymous)


May our days ahead be beautiful, and
May our hearts be happy, and
May the best things be yet to come!

I would like to seize the opportunity to thank all the people who remembered to contact me and be present in whatsoever way to wish me a wonderful day and upcoming year. It has been quite a few interesting weeks already and the pinnacle today is a stylish haircut to mark a new milestone in my healing journey and to celebrate being very much alive and kickingÂ đŸŽ‰đŸ„łđŸŽ‰
