The big 3-0!
"Life kicks you around sometimes. It scares you and it beats you up, but there’s a day when you realize you’re not just a survivor, you are a warrior.”

Today, I celebrate my 30th birthday. For the first time in my life, I don’t have a birthday wishlist. What I have is a list of the things and people that I am grateful for.

My family and close friends know all about the hardships I’ve experienced in the past. But God really has an amazing way of unfolding his plan for each one of us. FAITH is the magic word.

I am 30 and blessed with an awesome kid, a supportive and loving partner. Two of my siblings have settled down and two are kicking ass in school.  My mom is happy and very successful. Literally, could not ask for more. Moments like these, I miss my father, but I know he’s proud of what we’ve become.

So what happens after 30? I guess I’ll just have to enjoy the ride, keep on learning new things, be the coolest mom, be the best wife, succeed in my career, travel the world and change people’s lives for the better. I am as ideal and optimistic as I was 10 years ago and I won’t lose that fire.
