Pretty people are everywhere. Every corner you turn, street you walk on & basically, everywhere you see. Every city has a different style, a different trend. It makes me wonder if they are all as gorgeous on the inside as they are on the out. Curiouser & Curiouser.
ૐ: “It is said to be the seed of all creation. Just like an acorn seed has the immense power and beauty of a mighty oak tree. This seemingly small word contains all the power of the universe. It is the beginning, middle and the end of it all or the past, present and future. Chanting Om brings you into your awareness of the physical reality of this world and your body, the subtle impressions of the mind and emotions, the thoughts and beliefs of your life and this world.” – Unknown.
Birthdays. Everyone dreads their birthday. Especially getting older. You suddenly go through this stage of self depression where you just want to stay young, look hip & reflect back on where you are in life. I’ll admit, I’m TERRIBLE with birthdays. Typically a week or a bit before I go into meltdown mode. Wondering what I’m doing in life, where I’m going & if I’m starting to loose grip on my appearance. This year was slightly different. Well, okay; that was a slight lie. I slept horribly & dreaded the fact that I couldn’t be with my family for the first time ever on my actually birthday. However, that’s just one part of growing up. I will say, For the first time in a long time I’m incredibly happy with where I am. I’m living on my own in an amazing city full of potential. I have my two dogs who are both extremely happy & healthy. Keeping me active & on my toes. I’m within short walking distance of the beach, quick drive to the mountains & can pretty much go and do anything I want whenever I want. I’ve focused more on my lifestyle & with that I’ve now hit the lowest in my weight I’ve been for as long as I can remember. Easily back to my teenager years. I’ve met a really incredible guy who is the biggest sweetheart & I can just be myself with. It’s so rare to be able to just sit back with someone and hang out. No pressure or tension just genuinely enjoying yourselves. I had no idea guys like him even existed. I’m about to embark on a career path I’ve wanted for a very long time. I am happy, my soul is fulfilled & feels rich with happiness. I feel like 6 months ago I could never predict what true happiness feels like. In all aspects of my life I’m in a great place. I wanted to post about it so even on my future crummy days I can look back at this moment in time & realize what happiness truly looks like. I guess birthdays aren’t so bad. Aging isn’t awesome but let’s be honest, I’ve suffered with Peter Pan syndrome since I was in my late teens. (I’ve been 23 long before I ever actually turned 23 & well past since I’ve turned 23. Haha.) I think it’s fair to say I’m never ever growing up.
So I guess this is cheers to 28! Finally a birthday I can enjoy. I love who I am & whom I’m becoming. Hopefully this is the beginning of many more fantastic birthdays where I’m even more fulfilled & happy with where I am in life.
