An Obligatory Birthday Post

Obligatory because…I’m being facetious. A birthday post is being “extra”. I mean maybe not if you consider that people have actual photoshoots on every birthday. So perhaps, this is not a lot? I don’t really make a big deal of my birthday and turn my nose up at people who do haha. But I feel like I have a testimony and it’s obligatory to share.

My birthday was on Tuesday and it was pretty uneventful as my birthdays usually are. However, when I think about just how far I have come, I'm filled with thanksgiving and joy. My life now is such a stark contrast from what it was last year. On my birthday last year, I was uncertain, angry, and very anxious. This year, I am excited, hopeful, content, and most importantly I have great peace.
In my post yesterday on International Women's Day, I briefly mentioned the first things I did when I woke up on Tuesday. I'm really keen on being better. To be a better daughter, sister, just do better.

I want to be more confident in who I am in  Christ and really be able to approach God boldly, trusting to receive mercy and find grace to help me when I need it the most. So yes, I had a good day, mostly talking to family and friends, which was more fun than it sounds. But it was a huge reminder of the difference one year can make. God has been more than faithful this past year and I'm thankful. It really can only get better.

And the gifts 😳  lol. I know and have solid people in my life. I jokingly wrote a list for potential birthday gifts, and as I keep striking things off because I received them, I'm amazed. First, because I know real Gs lol, but also because write it down people. Write it down and make it plain and RUN with it.

Thankful. Thankful. Thankful.
