So today I turned 27.
Pretty surreal actually, since I started in this journey of scrapbooking 7 years ago and now, I am here. I have to say that this last year has been so amazing for my and I am incredibly blessed. I never realized how a craft could bring so many people together. It has allowed me to meet some of the most beautiful and amazing people in the world. In the last year I learned so much as well.
In the last year I learned to value my friends even more than I did before. To value every single moment because you don't know when it will happen again. To take each day one second at a time, and truly cherish the good moments, and learn from the bad. I learned to stay positive, and not to allow any negativity in my life. Surrounding myself with positive people always.
I also learned to love myself a little more, and to remember that I am worth something to someone out there. Every single person I meet all around the world I feel loved by. There is NOTHING in this world that gives me so much happiness and reward. Every time I teach a class, I meet new or old students, I remember why I do what I do. I once dreamed of being able to bring happiness to people, and I am lucky to be able to do that through this wonderful craft.
Another valuable thing I learned is to be THANKFUL for everything I have been given. I feel truly BLESSED for all the support, friendships, and amazing experiences I have made all along this journey. Although this journey is just beginning for me, I feel so THANKFUL for all of YOU who have helped me to be where I am today.
Being one year older means that I have lived one more year full of happiness and for that I thank every one. Thank You for the birthday wishes, and most of all thank YOU for being my friend.
Love you all.
