Days before my birthday, I celebrated with dear friends and a bunch of wonderful street kids from squatters of QC. I was consumed by different greetings, priceless smiles, endless thanks, unending claps and a birthday song. I floated into 26 with the people I am loved by.
It was beautiful. ♥
So when it was time to blow the candle, I paused for a moment… but didn’t make a wish.
Because I know that God has given me more than enough.
Twenty six. I turned 26 a week ago. I’m zooming fast at adulthood (and maturity I hope) but I will always nourish the child in me. I will constantly try to seize every opportunity to make a difference. I will continue to care even when the days seem pointless, make a conscious effort to put first the needs of the people I care about and live delighted and inspired by the Lord. I will choose to continue to seek adventure, quiet moments and beauty around me.
I WANT IT. I CLAIM IT.
Because just like any story in life: greatness only happens when we want something bad enough. So I will set my eyes steady on the goals and not let difficult circumstances put me down. I am becoming more and more restless the older I get.
But I am happy, grateful and blessed at 26, definitely. :)
