Last Saturday marked my 42nd lap around the sun...
I am celebrating my life, filled with amazing moments and huge challenges. A lot of learnings and the great experience that living life is.
I have learned a thing or two along the way ;) and today I wanted to share 3 of my top reflections with you:
1. I am enough: Still working on this one, but getting closer and closer. I do not need to change who I am, I am perfectly imperfect. I am going to fail at times and that is ok too. My weaknesses are part of who I am and I must accept them. I am different and that is great.
2. One day every challenge I have had will make sense: I wish I had known this one before... it would have saved me a thousand or more tears. But yes, all experiences are part of a bigger puzzle and as time passes I will see how all those pieces come together and make so much sense.
3. Follow my heart: Stop following the expectations of others (read family, friends, cultures or any other) and do what I want and am called to do. Even if it scares me. I always know what is best for me if I take the time to check with my soul.
And following my own advice on point # 3, I found a way to combine a couple of things that could not be closer to my heart and I am starting a new and exciting project 🥰
And with that, I will go and continue my celebrations because why not make it a full month!
Have a fantastic week!
