Birthday Blog | June 7, 2021

Yay! I mean, hello, it’s my second birthday quarantine. I’ve never imagined that this pandemic will last long until my special day. However, we were still able to celebrate with minimal restrictions at the present.

Honestly, it’s a little bittersweet entering my 24th year because the past months I’ve been into a not-so-good state. I felt overwhelmed about the situation, which I couldn’t deny that affected my mental and physical health, I must say. I was too drowned to keep grinding that I didn’t take priority of my health. I let it slip and fail to think of how essential rest is. This spoke to me loudly and learned that no matter how preoccupied I am, never ever forget to take care of myself.

It has been quite an ordeal patches to stitch and a tough coming-of-age. Still and all, I was able to savor exploring pastures and opportunities. Much as there are adversities, the experience thus far inspired me to take more chances and feel rewarding.

I have no idea on what the coming years will uphold. But I am going to continue to seizing the most of every day God will give me and to connect with people who matter the most, my family and friends. As well as to continue strengthening my relationship with God as I praise my way through the storms of life and my own thoughts. And no matter what this year brings I will continue to be thankful to celebrate every day! I believe that there are too many good things in life worth to feel blessed and privileged.

Above all, I am wishing for more years to celebrate and a good health. Cheers to the next 365 days and thriving to accomplish things real soon.

Sharing here are some photos taken with love —

Every year I got to be blessed to receive birthday cakes from my friends, so much appreciation and love with you all. It means a lot. ♡
They are some of my circle who are present to give birthday present in my special day. But, their presence is more than enough, as always. Still, masks on.
My celebration, wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering support of my grandmom and OC aunts, of course my dad also, he’s already busy outside with his “kumpares” they say. I know thank you isn’t enough to say that I really am endlessly grateful having them.
Birthday cards and our photos which I took from my Polaroid, simple things to serve as souvenirs to remember this day.
