Today I’m 40, and I’m celebrating my journey with family and friends.
Firstly I have to say that I am grateful for everything that I have in my life. My husband, kids, extended family and friends and for my career and where I am in my life. It is exactly where I need to be.
Today is a good day to reflect, where I came from to where I am today. Looking at my past, present and future and acknowledged that I went through a lot of things and I have learnt a lot about myself and others. From being up to being down and then up again, from being extremely happy to feeling blue and happy again.
I learnt valuable lessons, such as not being afraid of who I am and dealing with whatever life throws at me. It feels that I become wiser the older I get and know and accept what I’m capable of. Determination becomes a key element in achieving my goals. Not giving up midway through when things go wrong or not the way I have planned.
At the end, I’m still that little girl who wants to achieve success and make a difference in this world. Today I wish this little girl to stay as she is and follow her passion without letting anyone tell her that she can’t because what ever she set her mind to she can do it. This is the same thing I say to my kids on a daily basis.
Thanks again everyone, feeling grateful and loved.
