PS: The shoes were from BENONI!
There is no better time, than on the day of my 37th birthday (there I said it..uhuh...37!) to reflect on where I am in my life. Overall, I cannot believe at how blessed I have been. As I sit and try to reflect on things I feel I have missed out on, I struggle to find those feelings of unfulfillment. The good stuff in my life has been great, and the not so good stuff have been good lessons, without which I may not be where I am. I know that there are some things - things that are to me important in life, that I will never experience, but when you're revelling in the joy of what is, who has time to waste on "what could or should have been"?
My husband once asked me if I ever missed the glamour and recognition that comes with working some of the "real jobs" I've had. I've never given it so much as a thought. In that respect I feel as though my eyes have always been wide open - the real meaning of life for me can almost always be found in the simple things in life, the people, the opportunities one gets to see and take in the beauty of life, having quality time to sit and ponder and grow, to give back, to make a difference, and to love.
At 37 what I know for sure is this:
- i have everything that matters
