Throughout my entire life of birthdays and celebrations, this very moment in time absolutely has to be the best one yet. It feels completely different from the rest. I am allowing myself, as well as my readers, the opportunity to be open, honest, and viewed in raw form.

As the book of life has been amazingly and abundantly good to me, I can feel in my spirit that this next chapter entitled “27” will allow so much growth to take place.  I have never felt this type of emotion on my birthday so this is sort of different and I am figuring out the best way to approach it.  I am so grateful and thankful for all of the minor and major hardships and doubts that took place in chapter 26.  You may be asking yourself how or even why would someone be happy that they experienced rough times?  I am so thankful for those times because if I had not experienced them, I wouldn’t be doing, pursuing, nor acting on something that was once just an idea or dream to me.  Pushing the envelope & beating the odds is something that I am willing to  do more so than I ever have in my life.  I want to learn to not live for others but to live for my TRUE self and I am envisioning so many good things to come in life.  James 1:6 tells us, “but when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”  This speaks volumes and mirrors the strength and feeling I envision to take place in this chapter.  I acquire the belief and am refusing to doubt anything.
