As many of you may already know, I am turning 22 this month...drum roll please :) This birthday is special; I believe that last year I was a very different person. Now, I can proudly say that I have grown mentally and physically stronger. I have learnt that it is okay to commit mistakes. It is okay to be yourself. Phew ! Learnt so many life lessons !
I get so excited about my birthday... its like I am ten years old again. And you know what? I have to wait the whole month because my day is on the 31st. Nevertheless, its extremely exciting because the momentum keeps building; except for my friends who get mildly annoyed. Just kidding :)
I have decided that 22 years on planet Earth is a huge achievement and I should make a list of 22 things that I am grateful for. Now, this is a fun list. Hope, it inspires some of you guys too. Gratitude has made me a better person and its pleasantly surprising to know how much you are blessed with.
