My 19th Birthday

August 12, 2007

Today I celebrated my 19th birthday. Today has been a special day for me indeed. As I continue journeying this path called life, I have been able to learn a lot of things. As I turn 19 today I am struck by the fact that I am almost reaching the age of young adulthood and I am going to leave behind my childhood. As always, as a new day starts, I am given a fresh start a new beginning. I am able to continue to mold my future and hope for the best.

I leave behind all my shadows, the bad memories, the hatred, the spite, the grudges, and my worst decisions in life. I may not be able to run away from my shadow, but I can always ignore it.

My past will not interfere with my future. I have done stupid things and have met aweful people but all of that doesn't matter now.

What matters is the future and what I can do in the present to reach that future. As I went through the day I was able to realized that I am truly blessed. I have a home where I can call my sanctuary with a family that loves me. I have friends who continue to stick by my side no matter what. I realize that in this world full of strangers, I have people whom I can call my own, I am not alone, I was never alone.

To all those who have made my day special and had made me feel special, thank you very much!

As i grow older, I will opt to be wiser. I won't destroy my future by making the wrong choices. But making the wrong choice may be unavoidable at times, but I will think twice before committing one.

I am proud to say that I have turned 19. I am more experienced and ready to face life's challenges. I am up to the challenge!
