It’s my 23rd birthday. Someone get me some cake! 🎂Whoop!! It’s amazing how fast a year passes by. I’m still collecting my thoughts on how I feel. Just a year ago, I was so hyper about turning 22 on 22nd December) and today, I’m 23. How fast time flies.
I’m excited for this new chapter in my life though I feel a tinge of sadness knowing that I’m gradually leaving my childhood behind. I’m becoming an adult and the responsibilities that come with it are just so great but well, I’m coping.
Today, I’m sitting here and reflecting on the past year and all that happened. God has been good to me. He’s been so good to me. I have tremendous things to be grateful for. I have a wonderful family, good health, happiness and love. But the most outstanding thing that happened to me this year was the fact that I was able to graduate from University. Graduation looked impossible and I lost all hope but God surprised me😀 I’m also grateful for readers like you who make time to read my write ups.
I’m celebrating myself today. Not my accolades, accomplishments, publications or anything tangible but just for the fact that I’m still alive to see this day. Cheers to that.
As I say goodbye to my 22nd year and embrace my 23rd year, I pray for more wisdom, confidence and patience (Oh yes! I need a lot of that). Lol.
So tonight, when the clock strikes 6:43pm, I’ll be toasting to an amazing 23 years and starting a whole new journey. I look forward to celebrating my birthday with you all every year. Thank you for being a part of my world.
