Celebration!

It’s kind of my blogiversary and more importantly my birthday.

I started this blog so that I could join SP5. Then I kept the blog going so that I could be in SP6. After I decided not to join SP7 I kept the blog going purely for the RAOK web ring. I haven’t been a very good blogger. I was never very good at sharing my feelings and sometimes it is hard to find the time to sit down and write. Other times I find it hard to put into words what I am feeling. I just keep on hoping that I will get better at this stuff. I’m not quite ready to throw in the towel yet.

On March 21, I will be 26. I don’t really feel my age. Not even close to it. I usually say I feel more like I’m 16 and it’s true. I really do. There are days when I feel just as insecure as I was when I was 16. Other times I remember how carefree it was to be 16 and I feel the exact same way. When I was 16 I really enjoyed my life. I didn’t know where I was going to be or what I was going to do when I grew up, but I was ok with that. Some days I still feel this same way. I am starting to worry more about the whole “what I’m going to do when I grow up” part though. I can honestly say I am happy with my life (most of the time). I’ve never really liked my birthday. Not sure exactly when this started or why, but I do have an idea. It’s a little too much to share here.

Tomorrow on my birthday I will enjoy who I am, the good and the bad parts of being me. Tomorrow I will count my blessings. Tomorrow I am going to really enjoy my birthday.

Thanks again!

OMG How random. I found a link to your blog from someone who was talking about the book Handknit Holidays. And strangely enough, we have the same birthday.

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Even though you don't know who I am. LOL

Happy Birthday! I like to think of Birthdays as days we celebrate the birthday person being here. And how happy we are that they exist.:) Not another year older, just another year we get to enjoy your company.
