Today is my birthday, January first that is, and when I sat down and started writing I wanted to write something winning, witty, something smart, something that showed wisdom. I tried three or four times but everything that came out sounded wrong. So here I sit trying to type out something that resembles at least on of the above.
This past year I have been through a lot. I've been through losing a job, starting a new job, moving (1000 km away), starting yet another job and becoming the breadwinner. All that typed out does not give it justice at all. Believe me is sounds a lot nicer on here than it was in real life.
In all these life changes I've learned a lot about myself.
I am brave, strong, and courageous. I am resilient.
I am authentic. I am loyal. I am creative.
I am passionate, yet sometimes quite stoic.
I am able to continue learning and growing and picking up new hobbies.
And probably one of the things that I am still learning but I have found very important these past few months. I am capable and I wont let people tell me otherwise. I wont let my age, my amount of education, or even myself hold me back from what I can do or will do. I wont be defined by those things. I am so much more than numbers, I am so much more than words, and I am worth it. I wont let what I am define who I am.
