twenty-five




Today I turned twenty-five years old and I am the happiest I have ever been.
I'm so happy with where I'm at in my life right now.
I have everything I have ever wanted and more. 
My God, family, my health, my friends.

I have always struggled with my self-image.
Always so worried about what others thought of me. 
If I had enough to be accepted. 
I've done some really ugly things in the past trying to find acceptance.

And it has taken me 25 years to finally find peace with myself.
I'm so happy with who I have become because of my bumps in the road.
I've moved on and learned from past mistakes and it has molded me tremendously.

My kids need to see a mom who loves and puts her God, husband, and kids before anything else.
And that I am not focused on unimportant things of this world. 

I think the most important thing has been my walk with God.
The last year I have really come to know and love God with all of my heart.
I pray to continue my walk with God all the days of my life.
When there are hard times I know to rely on Gods grace.

Twenty-four was so good to me.
But twenty-five will be even better.
