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 ๐Ÿ˜ณ  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.
