Birthdays Are For Celebrating

Tuesday was my 29th birthday.

Devin Joubert Devin Berglund BirthdayI’ve heard so many people my age say “Oh my gosh, can you believe we are almost 30? We are so old.”

And inwardly I am thinking, “Wait! I’m not old. I feel as full of life as I did when I was 16 or 21.”

Yes, it’s insane how fast the years go by, but I’m not going to get depressed, because I get to live a year more.

I like to look at it this way:

Each year, when I celebrate a birthday it’s celebrating the whole last year that I just lived along with the excitement and joy of a new year of my life.

This is such a blessing. Years are blessings. And each year you get, is a chance to live and make a difference in a big way.

So no, I am not going to be depressed because the number is almost 30. I am so thankful to God that I’ve been able to live my life and that I’ll get to continue living it.

Just wanted to share my birthday thoughts with you all. I spent a lovely afternoon with my mom shopping, supper with my parents, brother, and hubby, and then I went to a movie with Johan. It was lovely.

So thankful!

I hope that each day you wake up and see the day as a blessing. Look past the small things in life that stress you out. Live and enjoy your blessings.
