#25

Wow, a quarter of a century gone by, just like that! 
I went to bed late Christmas Day just to receive a special call from a loved one and when I woke up on the 26th, I first of all mediated for a good 30 minutes. I don't know why but I just felt like reflecting on the past years gone by.

I thought about how far I've come- a baby born in a clinic in Libreville, Gabon who moved to New York, then back to my homeland Cameroon and now Canada.
I reflected on everything from past crushes and dates to teachers I hated. I reflected on faces I can never forget but names that I couldn't recall. I reflected on failed relationships, times I thought I was wiser than my parents, my parents' mistakes I do not wish to repeat, and then I started to think about the future-starting with next year's aspirations. I envisioned what I wish to accomplish next year, how I wish to accomplish them and what needs to be done.
 The beauty of having a birthday towards the end of the year is you get to reflect and create next year's drawing board a little earlier than most.
 I love the woman I've become and continue to become- a confident, kind, God-fearing and beautiful African woman who is in touch with her roots and knows what she wants. Of course I have my bad days, but I thank God I get to dust off and get back up and I have an amazing support system right behind me. I can't wait for the rest of my life :)
