27 years of life.

November 21, 2008

I steal moments.
I capture them, and hold them in my memory, hold them in my hand.
I can present these memories for the world to see, or these memories are held close to the heart for me only.
27 years of having my eyes open, life flashing before them. My hands reaching out to grab them, if only to hold them for a second.
27 years, of joy and sorrow, happiness and sadness.
27 years of splashing in puddles, running through fields, seeing animals in clouds, dancing on my toes, laughing till my stomach hurt, crying when sad, stressing when something overwhelms me, getting upset if something feels wrong.
27 years of love, giving and receiving.
27 years of being human.
27 years of life.

It’s been a beautiful year, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings me.

P.S. For those who can’t tell, it’s my birthday :)
P.P.S. What am I going to do for my birthday? Go to Disneyland of course! :D :D
P.P.P.S. If you didn’t catch it before, I decided to extend my deadline due to life being way too crazy… I’m now aiming for Dec 1st for my 26 things. :)
