Birthday Blues: Turning a year older used to be something I was excited about and longed for…don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful to God for another year and to still be alive in 2017. It’s just that, birthdays have now become a reminder of all the things I haven’t done yet. The things I promised myself and have let myself down…and others in the process.

I think it really hit me hard this year, I just withdrew from a lot of things. But, I’m learning to embrace myself, regardless of what others may think of me. I’m hoping to take life one step at a time. A friend of mine told me this week that; “Life is not a race [sprint], it’s a marathon”.

So, I was looking for a blue background for my laptop to have a visual representation of how I feel, then I came across a blue painting of a Lion. I was blown away, the statement that popped into my head as I stared at this image, was that; You could be feeling down or blue, but you have such strength within you that waiting to come alive… [insert Katy Perry – Roar] YOU’RE GONNA SEE ME ROAR!!!! Lol
