I have always loved my birthday. My family and friends have continuously made it such a special time for me, and I am so thankful. As I’ve gotten older, birthdays have become a little harder. Each year I feel like I’m losing time to do all that I want in this life. I look back proud at what I’ve done, but also yearning to have achieved more. It’s hard to feel excited about your birthday when you fear growing older.
Well, I have no room for fear in my life anymore. I am blowing up the picture of what I thought my life should look like, and I am living the real thing. The life where I have a caring family, an awesome husband, fabulous friends, and adorable kitties. The life where I travel the world, work at an amazing job, and visit Disneyland at least once a month. The life where I get to audition, act, and play in the City of Angels. The life where I’m bravely reaching for my dreams.
I am living an amazing life.
Thank you, God.
It doesn’t matter how old you are. Your life is what you make it. How will you choose to live?
