"I have had such a world wind week of celebration of my Birthday: from Ladies Night, club performance fiasco & my Birthday Party that I have not had time to sit down and reflect on my year, my age and what's to come:) Shall we??
It's shocking to me that in my 32 years of age I managed to learn English language from the alphabet, graduated from two colleges, came to Unites States at 19 completely losing my mind in the process, almost died from a food disorder, got married, got divorced and for the last year completely rebranded myself as well as put on about 20 events and counting. How has this all even been possible? Is this life??
I would say it all has happened because of my upbringing: poor, crazy, but very smart household led me to become a very competitive feminist woman who just wants to make the world a better place. I have made hundreds of mistakes doing it. Why do I make so many mistakes? Childhood issues, impatient, not enough reading, temper, lack of self-love, etc. Now as I am teaching you, guys, to do better I teach myself to do better as well.
I can't tell you how just writing my thoughts down has helped me become a better critical thinker, decision maker, helper, friend, business owner, etc. Talking to you, guys, and getting such a good response allowed me to be more confident when making business deals and talking to people in general. Thank you! It allowed me to grow on the level I have never expected, and I, truly, believe it's only the beginning for me.
What's next? What's now?? I think more of rebranding, better discipline, better customer service, more reading, better relationships, better self-care. I lack in caring about my body department because I always work. Older people talk about moisturizing, etc. I am getting older. I must start listening to them:)
Most importantly, as a newly divorced woman, I think I need to go back to my roots. I feel like 12 years journey of America for me is over! I'll talk about what I mean by it one day. Now I must really live this saying: "remember where you come from!" It helps a lot to be proud of who you are, your ancestors, your heritage, your history. It helps a lot to know who you really are and what you want to do in life. It helps a lot to be you.
So, this is me. Take it or leave it. Read it or block me. Watch me or delete me. Come to my events or forget me. Love me or hate me. I am me and this year I am really planning on reinventing myself for the betterment of myself. I truly believe that if I am better, I will be able to serve others better, achieve my goals better & make the world even just a little bit brighter.
My message to you today: do the same. Love who you are whole heartedly and cherish every breath you take. Someone told me the other day: "It's a big accomplishment to live till 32." Forgive me for saying that, but some people die at 32. I am alive and able. I am grateful for it! I feel like at this age I finally realize the true meaning of life: which is being happy with what you do and who you are with. This after all are what we are here for. Aren't we not? Whenever you read this I hope your Birthday year is going to be amazing, and it will only get better with age. Happy Birthday and let's make the rest of our lives a good one. Shall we??"
