It’s my party….

It’s April 5th, It’s my birthday! Yaaa! Today started off well enough. I went for drinks with some friends not knowing they had a little surprise planned for me. Paulla again. This  lady is too much. No, wait, I never really liked the saying, “you’re too much”, Paulla is just right and I couldn’t ask for a better friend.

A few seconds after midnight, my friends started kissing me and giving me their blessings. Awww, niceness. Then I saw a cake box appear on our tall table, but didn’t think anything of it because the group I was with was a pretty large one with people I didn’t know so I assumed the cake box concerned them. The cake was mine, all organised by Miss Paulla with the assistance of Miss (2ntrigue) Charlene – thanks again Gals.

I was literally in a trance and the trance DJ had nothing to do with my state. I was so overwhelmed. I was having so much fun. My 3rd chocolate cake for the past few months (even though I’m not a lover of chocolate) tasted great.  The chicken wings were yummy, especially with the sauce OMG!

I had a great time catching  up with some old friends and oh yeah, I totally enjoyed the trance music. Had to make an abrupt exit but overall 9 out of 10!

The highlight of my evening though was being locked out of the place I call(ed) home. I got there and faced a locked door. Now my Mummy lives walking distance across a highway from me and I have numerous GFs who would all open their doors to me no matter the hour. In fact they were initially horrified when they heard I stayed outside. But they calmed when they heard the rest of my tale.

I spent all day from the time I got home around 2, 3AM to around 3:30PM, praying and meditating. (I am not going to mention peeing in any cup). It was all worth it. One of Paulla’s many gifts to me was a book by one of my dearest friends (whom I’ve never met *giggles*) Iyanla Vanzant. I’ve learnt so much from this Sister  through her books, that I’ve grown to feel as if she’s one of my Girls looking out for me.

The book “Faith in the Valley” took me to places I had no plans to visit today.  Today was meant to be filled with fun and frollick, my day! But you know God plans and we’re always trying to work our own plan in right? God was not having that today.  I did some serious retrospection and introspection. I was enlightened and brought out of a slump (I had no idea how deep) I was in. I felt good. If I had know that spending a day in my car would have brought  so much to the surface, I would have done this a long time ago. But of course, you can’t rush God. I think this was meant to happen on THIS BIRTH day.

So I took stock of my life and where I’m heading. I have jutted down the steps I need to take to get there. I think I know who and what I need in my life at this moment (and you know that’s always changing – reason and a season right?)

In my facebook status today, I quoted John Wooden because I think  this is where I am right now: “I ‘m not as good as I ought to be.  I’m not as good as I want to be. I’m not as good as I’m going to be. But I am thankful that I am better than I used to be.”

My squad also had a small lime for me at home and here too I felt the love. It wasn’t the usual rowdyness so maybe I’m finally growing up…NAH! lol

Thanks for the  numerous birthday greetings. I love you all. Thank you Isha, Paulla & Mummy. My day was perfect.
