11 days ago I turned 31 and thought to myself how happy I have become with the person I am within the past year. I think it's so easy to say how you feel so blessed to turn a year older, but sometimes you don't really think about what that means.
I started a new job within Saks that I am so happy to have, and is another stepping stool towards my career. I have recently started dating again, which I am actually enjoying [no tinder for me thank you]. I finished my first semester of acting class in June where my teacher suggested I look into doing theater. And I am continuously trying to expanding my creativity levels.
What I am very grateful is the amazing and beautiful people that have come to surround, support and push me to be the person I am. I never have to falter from the odd self that I truly am. I sent out a mass text to everyone for my birthday. I did not know what to expect in comparison to the many birthday's I come out to throughout the year. However when I saw my small nook of friends who came, I almost cried. It was a beautiful sight, while small, it was perfect. Gathering with friends who I've had for almost 10 years, to friends I had just made 3 months prior. I could see how I was surrounded by love and humility.
So at this point in my life, while I STILL don't have my own place [which I found out should be early next year], or a boyfriend [I have a possible contender] or the career [steps closer], its all good. I know everything happens with the right timing and when you put it all out to the universe. So universe...I thank you for 31 years, and ready for another....however many years you see fit!
