Age is just a number


Hi, it’s my birthday – Oh My God. How did this happen? Does this mean I am officially an adult? When I was younger I used to think by 32, I want to around in the worlds with my kid, wait 32 isn’t that old. Why did I think by a certain age meant certain things were supposed to happen? I’m okay with that.

When birthday you will be thinking birthday carries some significance. It’s your special day and the ones closest to you are supposed to celebrate it with you. Maybe you will get gifts, a free meal and possibly a hug. If you don’t and if no one even wishes you a happy birthday, you may feel down on yourself. If no one thinks about you on your birthday it must mean that no one really cares about you, right? That just might be the truth but maybe not. Even though this year pandemic does not finish, alhamdulillah I still get birthday wishes… through text messaging, WhatsApp, IG of course. I was all for it and would reciprocate when it came to their birthday. If someone remembered my birthday, to them it meant they were a decent person in my life.

September 28, I wake up early morning and My mom said “Happy Birthday” and you know she prays for me. Honestly, I forgot my age, I think still 31 years old, but now that I’m older and wiser, I can say that my life gets better every day. Maybe we all think that every day (and hmm if you do!!) but I mean it today. My daughter is happy and healthy, I’m happy at my job (where I’ve been for 6 years!) and life is good. Happy? yes of course!

Well, many some things that aren’t that great in my life, but let’s be positive because it’s my day. Sometimes I think my life is a miracle. Allah makes me be a strong woman with having a nice daughter beside me. It’s amazing how everything every-single-thing I did before got I where I am right now. I think doing things outside of my comfort zone is a dream. It keeps you feeling alive. Even if it doesn’t work out quite as I’d hoped, I always the better person for it. Yes~Life should be about occasionally taking risks.

Dear Othe, last and this year were a difficult one, with many struggles and hardships. I got through it, all the same! Yay! Now is the start of a brand-new year. I guess I am looking forward to a fresh start. Someday I will tell you about my story, how I can catch up until now. As I turn 32, I’m so excited to share the next chapter of my life with my daughter. Allah, thank you for blessing me with a new year full of breakthroughs. To the most loving and kindest soul, more than anything, I wish myself more grace, more prosperity, more happiness and more years ahead. Amien :)~~~
