Today I am 25 years old. It has been a long time coming. I have many pleasant memories and have learned many tough lessons. I strive everyday to be better. I am so blessed, even in my tough times. I am grateful. There were times where I would believe something is too hard, but God is good and He has saved me many days in my times of no... direction. I have the best life, even though it may seem like I don't have much. I have the love of my family and love for myself. Yea, I still struggle with some of the things I struggled with 5 and 10 years ago, but I still try to do better and it doesn't mean I haven't grown. I realize that I just walk with a limp, BUT I keep walking. Walking to my destiny. TBH in my 25 years I have lied to save my ASS, and been lied to, tried to scheme lol to come up, and been schemed against, called a bitch, ho, slut, messed with ppl I shouldn't have, and been cheated on, accepted money from guys I was not interested in, been broke, then broken. On the flip I have also been called a college graduate, a great daughter, sister, friend, a dear student, budding business owner, blogger, and most importantly, Ma. With all of the things-good and bad- I have done or things done against me, I am proud of my walk because I wouldn't be who I am today. What makes me grown is not my age but my mindset to love myself, therefore I can truly love others and give back. Signed, Officially Grown & Sexy!
