Go go go go, go Lize, it’s your birthday! 😀

Aaaah it’s my buff day y’all and I’m happy to be turning 21 for the nth time again! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to understand that truly, age is nothing but a number. I might just be that fifty something years old woman who refuses to get that her youthful days are over in the future, because even as I grow in maturity and wisdom, I still feel very much a twenty-one year old at heart that I sometimes wonder if someone is playing a trick on me.

Anyway, I must say that the last half of my previous year- February to July, has been the toughest- mentally, physically and financially. I’ve been going through a lot, but no worries, I see my testimony right around the corner. So as this new year begins, ushering a new chapter in my book of life, I envision better things ahead and this isn’t just idle talk or a hope for a miracle. In fact, I’ve been sowing these past months and although it’s been hard, I’m grateful for the toil because with the new season comes the harvest and boy am I ready to reap in hundred folds.

It all sounds cryptic yeah? It might be, but I promise that there’ll be an update pretty soon. I surely haven’t been working in vain. One day I’ll write it all and you’ll begin to understand, but for now I’m happy to be celebrating another birthday. Leo’s are awesome people if I say so myself!
