Million dollar baby, champagne and sleeping in. Milk birthday cake and room service. Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt. A day of gratitude and golden blonde hair. Sometimes you just have to pinch yourself, because you can't believe the life you've created.
I always want to have more, be more, do more. I am so driven, and willing to take the actions to make it happen. But, my birthday was a day of simply soaking it in. Life isn't perfect, I was sick with a bad cold for the three days prior. But the day I turned 27, I woke up healthy and filled with so much love - so many phone calls and beautiful texts.
This year, I feel so much more in control than ever before. I don't feel like a victim of life or the world. I can't control what happens, but I can control how I feel about it. I was so sick the days leading up to this shoot, but I had made peace with it. I felt gratitude for all the days I had been healthy, all the people who have come into my life just this past year. We get to choose how we feel. You're not a victim of your emotions. Luckily, I was blessed with feeling wonderful and even began the day with pilates (my favorite.)
Those of you that have been following this blog since I was 18, you're beautiful and I have such gratitude for you. You make this space special.
Abundance is your birthright, and love really is the strongest force in the universe. <3
