So, it's my birthday today guys!! And coincidentally it's my 1000th post on My Amethyst too! Alhamduillah to The Almighty, Allah swt, for this amazing life you have given me for the past..ehemmm..28 years!! Hahaha.. I told everyone on instagram that I turned 25 this year, cause honestly speaking, I still feel like a 25 year old! I'll always feel 25, I'm not sure why. But as they always say, age is just a number, right?
Of course it is, but if you ask me, I'm not ashamed at all to be 28. This is because from what I learnt from the past is that each and every year you have lived and breathed, makes for who you are today. All the ups and downs you go through is what makes you--YOU. And I really don't get how some people would dread people knowing how old they are. Why would you be embarrassed of your age? Do you live according to other people's opinions about you? No. Are you afraid to be judged according to the age you are with the life you lead? Nuh-uh. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Take pride in your age, cause to me the best you can go about it, is to age gracefully. That's my aim in life and I in fact am so proud that the older I get, the more wiser I think I am and should be. Isn't it a great feeling to know how every year, as your age increases, wisdom takes its rightful place and levels up to your age and maturity based on the past year's experiences? I for one am happy when young adults nowadays comes up to me for my advises in life for they know, they can trust me.
It's a remarkable feeling I tell you.
Whether you're 25, 32, 46, or even 58, your life is yours and you should be grateful that you have that much amount (yet) to be the best person you could ever be like how you want you to be. In the end of the day, the only only person that can make you truly happy, is yourself. So make sure you're happy with where you are right now and let the next following birthday come by with open arms!
And as for me, being 28 this year is the year where I'm gonna start spectacularly. I'm not gonna let hurtful things take me down and I vow to become a stronger woman in all aspects of my life. I pray so that whatever decisions I make, is for the best of my parents, my family, friends and you readers. Like the lyrics to Taylor Swift's song called 'Clean' which I so can relate to right now..
"The rain came pouring down,
When I was drowning,
That's when I could finally breathe.
And that morning,
Gone was any trace of you,
I think I am finally
Omg I love that song. And its meaning. Till later, guys! Imma chomp down this cake I just received and cheat all day long to sinful treats hihi... I deserve it! I love you!
And ooohh, the most important thing is, I truly apologise if I ever said or did anything wrong that may have offended or hurt you in any way or another this past year. I am after all a human being, thus I know I am capable of doing so even though I may not realise it. Minta ampun dan maaf ya... In case I don't make it that far in life.. Heee.. Hey, it is possible! I love you once again! xx
*On my birthday, the only wish I'm making is so that you guys would like to give back to those truly in need. I'd highly suggest Tabung Syria if you'd like to donate, cause I hear the weather's there getting pretty cold, and without proper homes and materials, they'll be living in extreme cold weather. So please, let's help them ya*
