Happy Fucking Birthday

29 never felt so good. I realized its been two years since I blogged around my birthday. I posted on my Instagram one year ago: “As I grow older I have learned that many things that life throws at you is out of your control. You must not let your experiences taint your energy and the love you give to others and yourself. So cheers to another year of laughter, friendship and family. Remember to be kind to yourself and love the person you are.”

It is amazing to look back and know this has been words I have lived by this year. We are all shaped by some incredible sadness but we all have a choice to rise above them and to live a happy life. This year I have been focusing on being more happy and doing things for myself. I have been traveling more, trying things I never would have done before and really being positive. Positive thinking and not letting negative energy effect my life in any way. I am so big on manifestations and speaking things into existence/universe. First step to achieving anything is thinking about it and saying it out loud. If you know me, the universe and I have an amazing relationship.

Moving forward I only want to continue with self love and positivity.  I want to only do things that make my soul happy. I only have room for people in my life that uplift me and add value. Birthdays can be a time when individuals compare themselves to others around them, how they do not have certain things or are not at a certain stage in life they thought they would be and it can be a time to reflect on regrets. But to me age is just a state of mind. I would be lying if I said I do not regret anything in life but I also do believe everything happens for a reason. Every decision led you to where you are exactly in your life. I wouldn’t change a thing. What’s meant for you will be for you.

I am so proud of the things I have internally accomplished for myself this year and I am only looking forward to the future. I am so happy to know I have been completely honest with myself and have faced the hard truths and self reflection. Sometimes facing the truths about yourself can be hard but to truly embrace yourself you have to know the good and ugly traits you possess. And only when you are aware and accept your truths can you own your true self. Self awareness is key.

My soul is truly happy. Happy fucking birthday to me!

    Wow !!

    That was the first word that came to my mind after reading this blog. Literally said it out loud, in a cafe, as i sipped my coffee.

    It’s funny how much motivation and inspiration you can get from someone you don’t know. That’s how powerful your words are, and I thank you for that. We’ve all been in shitty, dark places in our lives, but it’s how we utilize that negative energy, build from it, and turn it into postive energy. I’ve recently made a lot of lifestyle changes , so I can’t agree with you any more than I do.

    Happy fucking birthday young lady !!

    Keep on doing what you love to do. Keep bettering your self everyday. “ Today you’ll be better than yesterday”. Keep writing, keep motivating others, as you motivated me today.

    Happy Birthday xo
