🎂 Happy Birthday to me. To the woman I always knew I could be, the woman who looks back at me. The woman who carries her struggles and shines her light bright, right where she needs it. The woman who bandages her wounds and emboldens her moves. The woman who knows her worth and the value of her words.
Happy Birthday to the little me, the child me, the awe-struck, smiling girl who felt too small for the things she encountered. The little girl who struggles to feel love when it surrounds her. The little girl who cries into the night into the gaping mouth of her fears and worries. I got you.
Happy Birthday to me and all the moments I step into my power. The moments I conquer my tendency to cower. The moments I breathe into the silence and pull my voice out. The times I say yes. The times I say no. The times I stake a claim to my throne and meet my majesty. The times I bow to my needs and wants like a royal order.
Happy Birthday to those who’ve built themselves up through and within me. Who reside in me when I walk and talk. Who step alongside me and hold my hand. Who weep, laugh, and love with me. Who see all the sides, corners, angles, facets and curves of me. Who set me free.
I love you, I love myself, and I love my many tried, true and tested worlds. On this spin, this swirl around the stars, this set of seasons, I’ll continue to cherish it all. Revel in the mystery and magic. Mull through the muddiness of growth. And soar through the sky of endless possibilities.
