Thirty Three

 

DSC_9550I turn 33 today.

Life has taken me in many directions for the past three years and finally I am at a place of understanding and letting go.  See processing situations in life can take a long time and no one has the right to tell you whether or not you need to get over something.  You will get over something when it’s your time.  When you can look back and have a clear understanding of the events that took place.  When you can sit in a place of peace and calm knowing that thorough it all God had his hand right over you.  When you can finally stand in a place of freedom and not fear.

At 33 I’m in that place.  Yes, the past sometimes can make me sad knowing that it didn’t turned out as planned but then I continue forward choosing Love over Fear.  I don’t know what tomorrow holds.  I don’t know what 34, 35 or 36 holds either but I know what it feels like to be scared even when I had a smile on my face for all to see but I kept pushing forward and pushing forward has lead me to “this” place.  “This” place of understanding.

So Welcome 33 I am excited to see what is in store for me.
