A message to my dear cousin on her 18th birthday.

Happy 18th Birthday! You are the fairest amongst all the “Tura” Clan and you’re clever too because you followed the disastrous step I’ve taken..hehehe..You are still young, always remember that things will change if you will take the first few steps to change it. I believe that you are happy with what you have right now but there’s more to life out there you’ve never seen. I wish to see you reaching for your dreams just like I do. I wish to see you having a different perspective in life being closer to our Creator. Having a baby or getting married is not the end of the world for us women. Sometimes it feels that way though 😀 . But it should not stop us to be ourselves and to reach our DREAMS.

I wish that you’ll envision yourself standing on that stage again with a crown on your head and be what you want to be. Trust me, it’s not that hard. Just start by shedding those extra baggies around your waist and make it your goal. You did it once so don’t tell me you can’t this time. It’s just a myth that once woman have given birth she can’t do fasting or skip meals for some stupid reason. I’ve tried it and it didn’t kill me 😀 . So what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, they say. You may also find something that interest you that you can earn an income with. Or just something for a hobby that will also help you grow.

You are beautiful in your own ways..and pretty smart too..so don’t let them walk over you! make them your stepping stones and climb over them!

I’ll always be around..ask yourself what you want your life to be in 5, 10, or 15 years from now..and start from there. Being content is a good thing but striving to make your life BETTER is what God wants us to be. We are God’s beautiful creatures and He wants us to SUCCEED according to His will.

I love you and I’m sorry for the past things I’ve done that had hurt you in a way. Have a blast! You are on your LEGAL age! 😀 Happy Birthday Shenna!
