Last month I celebrated my birthday. Someone I hold dear mentioned that it's a perfect time for me to 'turn over a new leaf' and I took it to heart. This made me reflect on my life; I decided to change my habits, train my mind to control my thoughts and focus on the grand scheme of things. To say it was difficult would be a huge understatement but I did it. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be reborn and make things right and better for myself and others. It was an enlightening experience.
When you hit a crossroad in your career or personal life, take a moment to pause and pray... and eventually you would notice how allowing for silence can make you see things more clearly. Strive to be grateful for the good and bad things that happen in your life because as cliche as this may sound "everything happens for a reason".
Remember that there are no mistakes in life, only lessons and experiences that would mold you like a diamond that you are. And like me, you too, can turn over a new leaf and be reborn today. Embrace the idea of change and watch what happens next. Change can be scary but it can also lead you to a whole new, happier life.
Happiest birthday, you are the dreamer and the dream. My very own North Star.
