Responsibilities


Today's my birthday and i'm officially 19. For the first time in my life i'm not excited about my new milestone. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful and happy that i'm alive. It's just that with this new milestone comes a set of responsibilities that i'd rather not have.

For one, i'm getting older and with this age i'm approaching, i'm getting closer to independence, i'm reaching the point in my life where i'll have to go into the real world and start making my own money. I won't be able to hide behind my parents when i'm afraid. Sure, i'll be able to call them for help but they won't be able to protect me from the occasional harsh realities of this world. I feel like a baby gradually being weaned, i'm being introduced to a new taste and i'm not accustomed to it.  

Over the past few month I've watched myself grow. I'm becoming more organised, i'm managing my finances better, I've looked for a job and might I say, it wasn't easy. I have a whole new perspective on life, I'm much more tolerant, patient and I can barely believe this really is me. For someone as shy as I am, the new found confidence and appreciation I have for my myself is something that i'm yet to comprehend.

With the new changes happening in my life, I really just want to appreciate everyone in my life. I want to thank my parents for being so supportive of me and teaching me the meaning of unconditional love. I want to thanks my siblings, cousins, uncles, aunties and grandparents for being part of my world, and for teaching me and helping me grow as a person. I want to thank my friends for being so patient with me and for bringing sanity into my life. Most especially, I want to thank those of you that take out of your days to visit my blog, it means the world to me. 

On that note, live life, enjoy yourself and live for you.
