They say that your birthday is the one day on which you shouldn't have to care about anything (or something like that). For my birthday, which was on this past Saturday, the main plan was to avoid all instances of stress or worry while preparing for my party; however, I was soon to discover that stress is a necessary part of any party planning process. Despite some minor mishaps while preparing the party snacks and putting up the decor, my party miraculously went off without a hitch and I had a fantastic time surrounded by my incredible friends. It was exactly the perfect mix of relaxation, lighthearted chatter, and fun games that I was hoping for! A huge thank you to everyone who made it out to share this special day with me!
In terms of turning twenty-three, I obviously felt no huge difference when the clock struck twelve. Nevertheless, I feel that I have made steady progress over the past year in terms of personal growth; I have discovered more about who I am as a person and who I wish to be (rather than just what I want to be when I 'grow up'). Additionally, I also have grown in regard to my personal relationships-- I have learned how to surround myself with steady, strong, and inspiring individuals who motivate me to constantly improve myself and strive for the stars!
So I'll end this birthday-themed post with another big "Thank You" note to the amazing people who make my life brighter and more vivid with each passing day!
