We age not by the years, but by the stories and memories we collect. 💕I've come to realize that the best life is one full of rich memories. .
this year on my birthday, I cherish getting older. I feel more confident and more comfortable in my skin. I'm full of immense gratitude to my parents for giving me life and nurturing me with love. To my children for giving me the gift of motherhood. To my husband for being the best friend and partner that makes life a beautiful adventure. To God for every blessing that I could have asked for. To my friends and family for filling my life with color and beautiful experiences. When M asked me what I want for my birthday, I knew immediately that it wasn't anything material. Physical things have never contributed to my happiness or contentment, real fulfillment, for me, comes from giving to others. .
My greatest hope for the next year: I hope to spend my time and resources making life better for those in disadvantaged situations--the ill, the orphaned, the falsely imprisoned. Victims of racism and abuse and war. I hope to help and inspire young women to chase their dreams and build their confidence. This Instagram post is my promise to myself. A very public promise. I hope others will join me in my quest to do good. There is so much goodness in the world.
