Today I turn twenty-nine!
Looking back at my life, I feel grateful. Grateful for all that I went through- the good and the bad, the easy and the difficult, the joy and the pain, the happiness and the sadness.
Both sides of my story held within its pages great wisdom, and greater lessons. I cried and I laughed, I screamed and I was silent, I held on tightly but I learnt how to let go.
Through my journey I learnt what true love is all about, the ecstasy of being held by a loved one, and the joy of giving love back. I learnt the power of willpower, and how it alters one’s course of life. I learnt what it means to lose a loved one, and how you lose a piece of you in the process. I learnt how to live without that piece and love its empty space as a unique print of who I am now.
Through my journey I fought fate, and then learnt how to surrender. I learnt that life knows more than I do, and that what is destined to come my way will always find me. I learnt how to open myself up to opportunities and learnt how impossible was a figment of my imagination.
Through my journey I learnt to love god more deeply, to appreciate myself more intensely and to only see good in all that is around me.
Through my journey I became who I am today. I am Sara, I am loud, I am joyous, and I am full of life.
My journey is my story and my story is my life. This is a new chapter in this story, one that I will write carefully but spontaneously.
This chapter and every chapter is the chance to start over. A chance to take the rubbles of yesterday and make them into the mansions of today. Each chapter is the chance to take the mansions of today and make them into the dream land of tomorrow.
“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
Peace & Love,
