Birthday Month

Oh how time flies! It’s already my birthday month and the start of the last quarter of the year.

I do have plans for my birthday. I want to celebrate it under the radar. Maybe just by myself or with some chosen people that I want to spend it with.

The moment I hit 30, all I wanted was to give back every year as I know I have been blessed with more than what I deserve. I didn’t get to do that until I turned 40.

And it has been that way ever since. Times may be hard on several occasions but it didn’t stop me from planning out something that’s meant to celebrate the day differently. Life has given me so much more after that because I always do what I can to pay forward and share whatever blessings I received from the year that was.

This year, I’ve been hit with a number of challenges and hardships. And I learned that despite these, I can only be grateful because, hopefully, I’ll be reaching another year of this thing called life.

So, I welcome my birth month with open arms. It’s a celebration that I always look forward to despite life being tough because I am tougher. Life loves me but I love life even more. And I will always be grateful for what I have – birthday or not.

Bring on the curve balls. I will face them with balloons and cake on the side.

Goodbye, September! Welcome, October!!!
