I had been planning on writing a letter to myself. About where I am and where I thought I’d be and how I’m not anywhere close to where I figured I would be at this point in my life. But I haven’t had time today. I’ve been a busy girl.
See, turning 26 doesn’t mean that the world stops for you. I still went to school, attempted to do some work, worked out, proctored an exam, attempted to do more work, came home and read all of my wonderful birthday messages, went to dinner with my mom and little brother (my little brother who paid for dinner!), went to the budget presentation for the high school I am teaching at this year and went to choir practice. I couldn’t have done nothing even if I wanted to. And tomorrow is looming overhead and coming quick and I’m exhausted and just ready to sleep.
So, I’m not writing that introspective post today. I will write it this weekend. Because I will have some time this weekend. I might even have some time tomorrow afternoon/evening maybe. I’m not sure yet. But my plan is to write it and have it post on Monday sometime. You will still get it.
The one thing that I haven’t gotten to do is thank everyone for the amazing birthday wishes. All it takes is a small little something to realize just how much you really are loved. The “happy birthday” messages are so appreciated. The ones that go a little further are even better, helping me realize just how loved I am by my fabulous friends. The ones that get even more in detail are ones that I will hold close to my heart. It’s been a long day. And tomorrow is going to be even longer.
So, if you were one of those people that wished me a happy birthday, thank you. You really have no idea how much it means to me. I would not be who I am or still be here today if it weren’t for your kindness. I don’t know how else to put it into words. It’s absolutely hard to figure out because words seem so inadequate right now.
I hope you all have a great day and a wonderful weekend. I’ll be back later to do more for you 🙂
