27 Years Around the Sun | Birthday Post

Sep 1, 2019

It's hard to believe that I have been on this Earth for 27 years now, as of today. The sun is back in my natal sun sign, virgo, and what a ride its been. There were so many memories (both amazing and not so amazing), dreams, laughs, trials, highs and lows, losses, failures, successes, heartaches, losing myself, finding myself, hardships, lessons, blessings and growth along the way. All very much needed to help shape me into the woman I want to become in this life, and all of which took me a long time to be grateful for. While life has not been easy or always joyful, there are plenty to be grateful for.

For the past couple of years I have been (and still am) working on myself, to become a better and healthier version of myself. Whether it be more mindful to the world around me and how I treat communities and cultures outside of my own or how I can contribute to communities and help people the best I can. 

Personal growth is something that is part of human evolution, that is valuable and important in life - it's not easy, often it's uncomfortable yet necessary to work through, and it's a lifelong journey, and I hope to never let anything or anyone stunt my growth. Rewiring of mindset, mentality and lifestyle has helped break my bad habits and (most - still working on) toxic behaviors/traits, which is incredibly rewarding. I have wellness retreats I manifested in, workshops, volunteering with amazing organizations, therapy, surrounding myself with compassionate and trustworthy folks who are in touch with the world, animals, nature and in themselves, and God, to thank in their help with my journey in my personal growth. 

(Sorry for all the rambling!)

Anyway, I don't have any inspirational advice to cap off the birthday post or an Am*zon/Book Depository wishlist (for reasons), but what I ask is if you donate or volunteer your time to good causes/organizations/charities that are important to me if you can or want to. Or just give your reps a call about important issues/bills with 5calls.org's call scripts. Thank you. :)
