34 Blessings, one for each year

Today, I am another year older.

Sure, I wish I was thinner. I wish I was stronger. I wish that I still wasn't getting zits at my age.

But instead, I am going to count my blessings for each year that I've been alive. I am going to be grateful for the things in my life that I have, and the things that I can still change. And I'm especially thankful for the love of my family.

Most of all, I'm not going to worry about enjoying a piece of birthday cake today because it's "not on plan". I am going to savour each bite, and celebrate another year of being alive today. Because if we can't enjoy special occasions, we can't enjoy anything, right?

With that, I am off to enjoy the day with my family. And count some more blessings.
