On Being One Year Older

Yesterday I turned one year older. So much has happened in the last year-- it's hard to put it all into words. But, yesterday I was thinking about it. I have learned so much in my time, and I'm not done living... I've got too much to finish.

Yesterday was as magical as I had hoped for. We attended a party at my Aunt and Uncle's house-- and it revolved around the birthday girl (me) and the future birthday girl, my sister. And who doesn't like parties that are all about them? I opened my presents, and I got everything I asked for and more.

Yesterday, years ago, I was given life. I was born into this world, eyes wide open, ready to start my life. And that life has not been a disappointment. I am more than blessed, but things also come with ups and downs. But I've learned from my mistakes, and I've also learned more about myself from them.

Yesterday I turned one year older and wiser too.

And I
am looking forward to next year, yet another year to grow and evolve and learn and accomplish my goals.
