birthday reflections!

As I reflect on my life, I am engulfed in a whirlwind of emotions. The waves come crashing in, one after the other, leaving me awash with a myriad of feelings. At times, I feel a wave of melancholy, a reminder of the years gone by, and the uncertainty of the future. Other times, waves of thanksgiving engulf me, as I reflect on the blessings of life and the people who have been instrumental in shaping me into who I am today.

I am reminded of the importance of nurturing relationships. Keeping my friends close and my family even closer is crucial in this journey of life. I must not be afraid to ask for guidance and support from those I love and cherish.

Desire is an unstoppable force, and I must learn to understand it. I should not let the opinions of others drown out the voice within me. My heart can take me on wild journeys, and I must be willing to embrace the unknown and fall again, and again.

The days may seem long, but the years are short. Life can be exhausting at times, but I must persevere and keep moving forward. Love can be scary - especially knowing it can end in acrimony. However, I must not run away from it. I must be willing to open up my heart again, and take the leap of faith.

Believing in God is a concept that is beyond words, I must learn to let go and trust in a higher power. And finally, I must always strive to live a life without regrets. If today was my last day on earth, what would I do differently? Whatever it is, I must do it now and make the most of this precious gift of life.

Love, Ore
