A year older - embracing the gift of life

I am not making a wish this year.

Rather, I am making a pact with myself. A commitment to action. This year I am putting in the work where it matters - in my relationships.

Birthdays evolve. As a child my birthday was present. It was all about that day, the attention, the gifts I would receive, the fun I would have, and that was bliss. In my teenage years, my birthdays were future. Oh! I could not wait to grow up and 'finally live'. I would spend that day dreaming and anticipating about what my life would look like. I did not only make a wish while blowing out the candles, I made wishes. In my early twenties, I was mostly lost, confused and anxious. Now, my birthday is past.

Today I look around me with gratitude for the present, past and future. I am who I want to be, where I hoped to be, and with the people I am happy to be with.

Reflection is a good thing and now I realise that it comes with age and experience. I have come a long way in this journey of self discovery and it has all been worth it.

To more amazing years to come!

Happy birthday Paula. I love you.

About Me

I love a good story! Most especially the relatable kind. 


After reading numerous books and getting lost in diverse stories, I have decided to start afresh ~ build a brand new bookshelf filled with old and new books.


The best part is that we get to build it together!

Want to know which books have got me MIA from social media?

Stay tuned!
