Today marks exactly 31 years of me being on this planet. That's 31 years of curiousity and exploration, 31 years of failure and growth, 31 years of
adversity and perseverance, and 31 years of preparation that has well-equipped me for the long journey ahead -- destination still unknown. But you
probably wouldn't know it by just looking at me; I may look like a kid fresh out of highschool still struggling to grow his beard, but don't be fooled
by the innocent baby face. Even though I seem to be stuck in adolescence from the neck up, my soul feels like it has already experienced an entire
lifetime, and the unbreakable shell that protects me has been forged in the deepest of fires from all my trips to Hell and back... and there is still
so much for me to experience and learn.
a rose that grew from the concrete...
I'm honestly not the type that likes to broadcast things, but seeing as how I currently find myself trapped in some creative zone where I like to
pretend I'm some kind of a writer (really I'm just practicing) and boast more intelligence than I actually possess (debatable), I will
today as an excuse to do just that.
But anyway, that is neither here nor there because the point of this thread isn't to celebrate my life; what is there to even celebrate? It is far too
early to be celebrating life when I still have my entire life ahead of me. Today is just another day and opportunity for me to grow and be better. Be
better today than I was yesterday, and be better tomorrow than I am today -- that's my approach every day, and my only hope is I can be an example for
those around me and inspire someone along the way.
So as I sit here by myself sipping on this glass of Merlot (it's too damn early to be drinking wine, but hey it's my birthday), trying to convince all
my friends that I'm staying in tonight, I can't help but reflect on how far I've come and be excited for the road that lies ahead. I'm financially
stable, I have everything I need, and I've never been more content and sure of myself. For me, this is the greatest gift I could ever ask for. I once
read somewhere on these boards that you should never post when drunk. Well, I better hurry up and finish this before I end up saying something I'll
...sike! I don't live with regrets, ever. In my world, there are no mistakes, only lessons learned. I just hope someone can find something meaningful
in this otherwise meaningless thread.
Oh wait! There is
someone we can celebrate. Happy belated birthday to my friend zosimov
! (Her birthday was yesterday)
Shout-out to all the Virgos.
