Reflections of a Current 27 Year Old Woman

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Wow, I can't believe that it's exactly one week to the date until Christmas!! Time is really flying by! I really love this time of year because everything is so pretty in the environment outside, all the decorations, the lights, and all the holiday events! I also love how the holiday season can bring some people together. I'm the type of person that I love to give gifts especially to the people that I love and care about. Whether, it's buying a gift for someone or making a tray/basket full of baked Christmas goodies, it makes me feel good to give to others :)

Now with that being said, I'm going to focus on the subject of my post today. I'm going to reflect on being 27 years old. For my blogging friends who regularly visit my blog, you may remember that I've mentioned that my birthday is on Christmas Day (I think it's pretty awesome that I was born on Jesus' birthday) For those who are reading this today, now you know as well lol :) Anyway, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, and instead of dreading turning a year old like some people do (ok... in the past I've been guilty of dreading turning a year older) I'm embracing turning older. Seriously there's a silver lining in celebrating turning a year older. I think about how some people didn't get to celebrate their next birthday, for that reason alone I will be grateful this time next week. I have so many things I look forward to in the future; I may even go to graduate school so I can become a counselor. I hope to one day be blessed to have a wonderful husband and children. I may not be exactly where I want to be in life, but that's the great thing about life…it's a journey. The journey may not always be pleasant, but every experience good or bad you likely will learn something from it. I can honestly say that I've taken something from life's experiences thus far. Once again some experiences were good, some were not so good, but at the end of the day I kept a positive outlook, in my opinion that's what really counts :) God willing next week as I continue life's incredible journey, I will feel blessed, feel beautiful, and embrace turning 28 years old.

Happy Birthday to all the December babies! And Happy Holidays Everyone!

    1. Thank you Liz for the birthday wishes :) Things are going well for me, but I really wanted to reflect on all aspects in my life thus far. I feel like people should try to see the bright side of their circumstances. Life isn't going to be perfect, but life can be pretty terrific. It's all the attitude a person has that makes all the difference. I try my best to remain positive. I'm glad I met you through blogging too!! I wish you a Very Merry Christmas!!

    1. Thank you Ashley!! Turning a year older definitely brings more wisdom. I've gained so much perspective as I've ventured through my 20's. I can't wait to experience what opportunities turning 28 years old has in store for me! I agree people should definitely embrace that. When I tell people my birthday is on Christmas, they find it interesting and ask me what it's like to have a birthday on Christmas lol :)

  9. so true. you should embrace turning a year older because there are those who don't make it to there next birthday. however, a lot of people dread their birthdays and turning another year older. I know I do. But think of it this way. when you turn another year older make it a new beginning/chapter of your life and make the next year of your life even better then the last.
