Now that I am 31

Yes, I’m officially thirty-one and a year older than yesterday. Getting older is inevitable somewhat synonymous to a 7 year old child’s tooth falling off and an aging woman whacked by menopausal syndrome. But instead of putting myself into a pit of worries and procrastination, I diverted my whole energy to embrace the challenges and surprises as well as pain and joy that await me in this new stage of life. I must admit there are so many things I am thankful for and it is necessary to tally my personal complacency. After all, it is not years that count but the life I have in years.

Now that I’m 31, I’m grateful that:

  1. I married the man, who accepted the flaws and beauty within me.
