I turn 31 years old today!
If turning 30 was a pivotal moment in someone’s life, turning 31 makes it really official that you belong in this age bracket. I wouldn’t change anything though. Getting here was by far the most intense and fulfilling journey I’ve ever undertaken that I call 31 my year of awakening.
My 30th birthday was the best and was also a disorienting moment in my life. It was the best because I had everything I dreamt of – a family, a career and my family beside me and close-knit of friends whom I love the most. Disorienting in a sense that I remember blowing my birthday candle while holding a one-month old baby in my arms, feeling the baby blues, and dealing with an identity crisis as a new mom.
I’ve gone through a lot this year and I’m still dealing with some stuff privately but all I can say is I’m feeling more alive than before. It has been a year of healing and transformation and I’m slowly defining and awakening the giant within me and I am excited to unleash it into the world!
But in the meantime, today is all about celebration. I have the whole morning to myself (a treat!) which will be dedicated to pampering my body and mind with medication, yoga, mani and pedi and eating dessert for breakfast. The celebration will begin later on at our house with a bad dance party with Anthony and Naomi and more cake eating because calories don’t count on your birthday right?
