Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 32 and first of all, I am just so grateful and blessed to be alive to see this day. There are so many other things to be thankful for: a wonderful family and friends and good health. Ever since I joined SP, even though the pounds have been slow to come off, I feel stronger and can now play with my kids more now than ever. Everyday, I am conscious of the fact that I am growing older and thus, have to take care of my body and mind. I used to get so frustrated at my life, always thinking that I don't have a good job or that everyone else is more successful than me. One thing I've learned so far is that money doesn't guarantee you happiness and that if you set your priorities properly, things will fall in place like it's supposed to be. Life is way too short and there is no substitute for good health, friends and family so I have to take care of my whole being: physical, mental and emotional wellbeing to enjoy life to its fullest.
We also finalized the deal on our first home yesterday. I can't believe that I am a homeowner. It still hasn't registered yet and it just proves that it pays to be patient and that good things will follow. I can't wait to decorate and make it our own. So it is fair to say that yesterday was a wonderful day.
