On Tuesday (2nd Feb) I turned 25! On the day, I had nearly everyone wanting to make plans with me but really, I just wanted to chill out and reflect. Last year, I spent my birthday in Paris, shortly after my first explosive bout of endometriosis. I remember being in Ralphs, Paris, and not being able to eat any of the wonderful food in front of me because it was too painful to eat around that time.
I remember it generally being a really unhappy period of my life and I remember not being content with life because of particular situations. It’s such a blessing that this year was a complete 360 degree turn for me. For two whole days (my birthday included) I had no pain at all which means that my second, most recently surgery in December has been a success! I’ve mended bridges that were once burnt with a pride bounded matches because I’ve come realise that some people are not worth losing and simply cannot be replaced. I’ve grown mentally, spiritually and health wise which for me, have been the biggest battles of my 24th year of life.
Overcoming those things alone are all the presents that I need for my 25th birthday although,I did treat my self to some Tom Ford booties though haaaaaaaan. I don’t play LOL.
But this is just a post to reflect on life and how grateful I am to be happy and healthy again. I’m also so grateful for you guys, checking up on me and my health all the time as well as my general well being and supporting me with melissaswardrobe.com and all my other endevours. I’m also thankful for the people that ALWAYS leave a comment and give me wonderful feedback.
I’m thankful for so many things and I’m glad that this year I was able to smile thoughout my birthday and share my happiness with you!
