Have you ever had a birthday where you've felt so fabulous? Because today I feel fabulous, and that smile on my face is the real deal, thanks to all my amazing family and friends in my life. I swear, for the past week or more I have felt incredibly special seeing all of them plan my birthday parties. To be honest, I don't need or expect gifts because my life is filled to the brim with wonderful people that care about me, and to me, that's a gift.
Speaking of the smile on my face, I seem to have lost track of time studying it lately. A bit of self analyzing actually. I see the girl within that smile has checked off a box on each of her birthdays, like being allowed to drive, check. Becoming an adult, check. Buying her first alcoholic beverage, check. Getting a higher degree, check. She has experienced friendships, break-ups, joys, failure, and achievement. But I also see a girl that is still youthful and naive, just waiting to see what the world has to offer her. She's hopeful of what life has in store. Most of all she's happy and full of love. She's got everything she's ever wished for and more. The best family on earth. And amazing friends that care like family does. She sees so many more boxes she wants to check off in her future, but for now she's content.
This is me at twenty-four.
