A Birthday Letter

keep calm its my bday | Biskvittka | Fashion blog: Happy Birthday to ME!

On my 26th birthday, I debated whether to write my thoughts down or keep them in my head. But here is the amazing thing I have learned is that having a blog gives me the ability to reflect on a time in my life. So as I enter the final years of my twenties, I wanted to share some thoughts. My lessons, hopes, fears, dreams, & gratitude.. I wonder if you ever feel the same?

I just cannot believe that I am turning 26.. If someone ask me how old I am, my first instinct would be to say 23. I do not know why but I feel like that is just a good age not too old & not too young! If someone asked you the same exact question, what would your answer be?

I have learned so much over the last decade. Part of me wishes I knew then what I do now. The journey you go through to understand who you are, your values, beliefs & standards is truly amazing.  People have came & gone ( & for those whom are gone I truly am happy they are no longer in my life) Daddy once said if you can count your true friends on only your 10 little fingers then you are blessed & I could not agree more! Those are the friends whom will be in my life forever & always..

I have changed in a lot of ways that I never truly expected too. My ultimate learning? Always listen to your instincts, have the confidence, & conviction to trust in yourself.

I truly have so much to be thankful for! I have had a truly blessed life. Above all, I am thankful for my family. Its an amazing feeling to know that no matter what you have people whom support you & love you unconditionally. I have immense gratitude & love for my parents whom provided me with an amazing home & great education.

I can only hope that my last years in my twenties are just as great if not better then it was in my earlier twenties! Here is too fingers crossed that things turn out even better then they already are..
