Something I love about my life and just life in general is that it really always is full of surprises. So much of life is brilliantly unpredictable with its twist and turns and ups and downs. But I’ve seen that if I can learn to go with it and enjoy the journey there are so many amazing things about life that I can discover.
(If you’re taken back by the passion in this blog, I just watched Amazing Grace about William Wilberforce and listened to an incredible teaching by Banning Liebscher about sacrifice right before I wrote this. So, consider yourself warned.)
Well, it’s that time again. It’s my birthday eve. I’ll be 26 tomorrow and like on every birthdays eve, I get nostalgic. I put on my moody music and I look through pictures of the last year of my life. I want to remember everything that happened. The feelings I felt. The things I experienced. I want to recapture every moment. I don’t want to forget one thing that happened to me during the past year. As I get older I realize how precious life is. How every moment has the potential to be a defining point in the timeline of life. The good and the bad. Because time is precious. Moments are defining. Life is meant to be experienced to the full. And I can honestly say, after looking back on 25, I lived it. I experienced it. I embraced it with all that was within me and because of that, I will never forget 25 as long as I live. My 25 was…. Well, it was epic. Not just because of the good things that happened or the places I traveled. Which were amazing if I might add.
