Personal: Birthday Ramblings

Great are You Lord over all
We will declare Lord You are faithful
Great are You Lord over all
Great are You Lord
You are the strength of my life Lord
It doesn't matter what may come my way
You are the strength of my life Lord
I'm holding on to You

I am thankful to my God for blessing me another year on this earth. Thankful for my blessings: my family, my friends, my workmates and my job. During my early 20s, I struggled with self-doubt and dealing with failure. Who knew that during in my mid-20s that I would experience my own success through self belief, perseverance, fervent prayers and encouragement of family and friends? I still have my doubts and I feel that I should already be accomplished but yesterday I was reminded and received affirmation and said
"Wow, you've already achieved a lot. You have been to places and you'll graduate."
To receive such affirmation made me realise that my life's timeline is different to others. Whoever reads this and stuck this far into my ramblings, if you feel like you are in a rut, I pray that you will get to feel the way I feel now. I am happy with the timeline that I am blessed with and would not have it any other way.

For the past few years, I've been scared turning another year older but now I'm happy to be 26. Not all children are blessed to live that longer. And I have realised this week that another year means another year of blessings and to be a blessing.

Peace and Love,
