Au Revoir, Twenty-Nine!

Well this is new. I'm all packed. I'm taking a trip for my 30th birthday and it's strange that I won't be with family as I celebrate my birthday. Instead, I'm going to Hong Kong with a good friend of mine, Lou. It's been five years since I've been to Hong Kong. The last time I was there, I was with my friend, Lee-Ann. And it was a good time. For some strange reason, I chose to spend my 30th birthday in Hong Kong this year. But hey, why not, right?

29 has been bananas. 2016 in general, was crazy for everyone but I'd like to think that my 29th year, I guess, was a year of discovery, to a certain degree. There's still so much more I don't know about myself and there's still so much more I want to know. And I hope that this is the year where I start to, I guess, like myself a little more than I usually do. Don't get me wrong, this is not some self loathing post.

I'm very very grateful for everything that's happened to me these past 29 years. I guess I'm just really looking forward to 30s, my 30s and hoping life really does begin then. Not that I haven't been living. Perhaps that I'm more mindful of the way I live and more generous to myself and to others, kinder to myself and to others.

Thanks again to everyone for sticking around. It's been slower than usual on the posting front and the commenting front and i want to say thanks to all of you for being there this past year. Au revoir 29. Hello, 30.

    I think the most important thing to note in this ‘voice post’ is that Livejournal NO LONGER supports the voice post. How insane is this? I am a…
