Today marks my 22nd birthday and I am feeling so incredibly blessed. If you have been following me from the beginning during my awkward illustrative days, I thank you. If you are a recent follower, I thank you too. Because you guys have helped shape and mould the last year for me.
So much has changed, i don't even know where to begin. As i'm typing this, i'm slurping the last remnants of coffee from a chipped High School Musical mug and grinning to myself, because I am filled with such happiness. When I started this blog back in 2011, it was with a heavy heart. I was all sorts of confused, my brain and heart were doing loop-de-loops for a multitude of reasons. 21 was the year of change, and what i thought was change for the worst was most definitely for the best. 21 was the year that i truly emerged from my frown filled chrysalis to become a hardened happy, albeit lopsided winged butterfly. It's funny to look back and see how much has changed, my confidence, my attitude towards life, my friends, you get the drill.
Still wondering where you guys come in? I'll tell you now.
You see, this blog was the thing i turned to when I felt everything was too much, too stressful too tiring. Your words of kindness encouraged me and comforted me on rainy days, simple comments like "Keep your head up." spurred me on and what started as an illustrative diary of my personal growth has become so much more! Your feedback on some of my more personal posts such as "The Power Of Love" left me in tears and your support when i entered Company Magazine's Style Blogger Awards was incredible.Without you guys following me, tweeting and commenting, none of the opportunities that have arisen from my blog would have been possible. Through blogging i have met so many wonderful people, some of which i hope will be lifelong friends.
So, to all of you, my blogger friends and readers, i thank you, from the bottom of my love filled heart. Your comments and tweets are stupendously appreciated and i wish you all the most wonderful kismet and as always, i'm sending lots of love and positive vibes your way.
Lot's of love hugs and kisses.
