Happy Birthday To Me

Seeing that this is my first post of the year, allow me to send you, my reader, new year wishes with love..

Hoping that your 2019 is off to a great start. Can you imagine that we are actually 14 days into the year, already? How fast have the days gone by? Or is it just me who's noticing how fast the year is moving? And can I just say that January/February are my best because I love the hot weather. I would rather deal with heat than rain/cold, honestly :-) And for this reason, the current weather inspired my outfit for the day.

So today, the 14th, I get to turn a year older. A totally different birthday celebration for me, if you ask. I'm normally the type of person who once we get to my birthday month, I swear you will not be at peace because I will countdown from the days to my birthday up until the last hour. This time round, it's quite different for me; an emotional day because its exactly 6 months since I lost my mum to cancer. So 14th has become one of those dates that will forever remain etched in my mind because it will always remind me of my late mum. 6 months down the line, it still hurts and it still feels like it happened yesterday and this journey of grief has been a difficult one for me. But I still choose to have faith in God that one day these memories that are filled with tears will soon be filled with so much laughter.

So as I turn twenty fiiiiiine, here are 5 lessons I felt I should share with you that I have learnt along the way;

1. Giving up is never an option. There's never any harm in trying. At the end of the day, even if it doesn't work, there will always be a lesson that you'll learn. 
2. Never underestimate the power of prayer. No matter the situation, always pray. 
3. Its better to have few friends who will always be there for you than many who will never be there for you when you are in need of them. 
4. Life is too short to live up to people's expectations. Create your own story!
5. It's ok to say NO. Never ever be compromised to do what is against your values. It's one of the most freeing things in life, no doubt.
