Not the fanciest set of pictures to usher myself into a new year and age. I know, I know. Truth is, I don’t exactly feel fancy right now. Neither do I feel any special sort of way or any of those fuzzy feelings that come with birthdays.
Rather I feel numb and a certain sort of calmness that I can only explain as me getting a bit more comfortable with the silence.
Don’t get me wrong, of course, I feel thankful for another year but I can’t quite get myself to be excited about it. Maybe because there’s really not much to be excited about. Same Ol’. Same Ol’.
Nonetheless, there has always been the obligatory birthday post on this blog so in keeping with the tradition, I thought to break the silence and share a few thoughts that went through my head on the 8th of December (my actual birthday)
I’m currently situated in my favorite chair editing pictures hoping they come out right, vaguely aware of the fact that today is, in fact, my birthday and I turn twenty-four. A whole twenty-four!
Growing up, twenty-four to me meant a family of my own and an incredible glow up but I guess we never truly know what awaits us ahead.
Either way here’s to a new year for me. To living life one day at a time, to my twenty-fourth year being more awesome than the one before it and to more love, light, and meaningful friendships.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes over on social media! As usual, the one thing I always ask you guys on this day as a gift to me is that you kindly click to tweet and share the blog.
P.S – The pictures didn’t come out right and you’re viewing them right now because for some reason I quite like them.
