Dear reader,

I don’t usually celebrate my birthday, since I turned 16 I was never a fan of celebrating and making my birthday a huge deal. I was born on:

Day: 25 Month: December Year: 1996

This year, I am surrounded with love and positivity. I am so blessed, grateful, and thankful to everyone who made this day special to me. Simple acts of kindness like simply sending a happy birthday text is more than enough for me. I always feel weird receiving and accepting gifts, especially from friends. But this year, My friends took the time to create an amazing video wishing a happy birthday from all over the world, I’ve never felt more love and blessed. If any of you are reading this, thank you so much for making me feel so special.

This quote actually changed the way I thought of birthdays:

“Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated”

I always want to celebrate life, and appreciate every aspect of it, both the good and the bad. Life is too short to not enjoy every second of it, and I this year, and the years to come, have decided to celebrate every moment.
