In just 2 quick days my 28th Birthday will be here, for me birthdays are horrible. I always manage to have something happen to me that make them unforgettable in not so good ways.
For my Golden Year birthday I received a nasty spider bite, that later made me really sick and led to a doctor procedure. The year following that I caught mono and spent a lot of time sleeping and feeling horrible.
I often look back on these experiences as I get older, I like to approach everyday as Expecting the Best, but Prepared For the Worst, as I am often dealt lemons.
This past year has been probably the roughest one yet that I have had all starting the night the year turned; losing two grandpas within 30 days, getting married during the last days that one grandpa was here, finishing my last semester in college in 8 WEEKS, dealing with chronic sinusitis, and deciding to free-lance work while completing college all pull my mind a million directions.
You may wonder how one remains calm, and finds the encouragement to face the continuing challenges that we are dealt.
I would not have been able to give you this any sooner.
