I have always celebrated my birthdays, I always that person that gets super excited and plans to celebrate all month long. I make a big deal about it, it is my own personal holiday.
Some people get all excited about NYFW and go all out, me? I think I will like to start calling it Chica Fashion Birthday Week lol I have never used a hashtag but this year I think I will go with #CFBW.
I have always made sure I had my hair, nails and outfits all lined up and in check. No detail left unturned, I have worked out, dieted, tanned, waxed you name it I have done it in preparation for celebratory events. From haircuts, to blow outs to new colors, I have done it.
I have gotten tattoos, I celebrated in the club for every birthday from 21 to 26, I've gone to movies, dinners and have had adventures in New York City. I can truly and honestly say that I have enjoyed all of my birthdays. I feel blessed and thankful to have been able to even make it to 30 let alone have done all that I have and experienced all that I have although I have yet to go to the Texas State Fair. Also this year I really wanted to celebrate in the Dominican Republic during Dominicana Moda but alas it wasn't possible.
I have done some what of a little list, not only of achievements but of failures and sorrows too because all that I have seen and been through has made me the fabulous woman I am today. I am thankful to The Lord for every minute of his grace, favor and mercy thus far.
The Big Three 0...
A good part of my life in 30 lines but not everything, I can say this though... This isn't all of me there has been much more and there is much more to come. God has a plan for me and even when I don't see it or understand it, I know all things are working together for my good.
This thought really sums up my frame of mind now that I am 30 and I thank God for this kingdom mentality. I thank Him for saving me when he did, for allowing me to see 30, to birth two amazing children and to be amongst my most loved ones.
