Asha turns 28

This past Sunday I recorded another year of life on Earth. That day dawned with me wrapped up in a colourful duvet in my hotel room in the heart of Hastings, with my stuffed sheep Benjamin in the crook of my arm.

As I came fully into conciousness, I was thankful to have made it through another year and more than anything else, I felt blessed to be able to choose to spend this birthday morning in solitude and tranquillity.

My gift to myself was getaway weekend in a a hotel and the luxury of being alone for long stretches of time without a laptop; just me and my journal and pretty pens. I delved into my thoughts and my feelings, gauged my goals and took a look at my finances.

At the end of it all, I felt relaxed and refreshed and ready to return to my day to day life with a clearer picture of where I was headed.

My birthday was made special by friends and family who went out of their way to treat me, or just to wish me a happy birthday. I also celebrated with my forum and on-line friends; each and everyone added to the day and made me feel loved and appreciated.

Being 28 in and of itself has changed nothing, but I took it as a time to draw a line in the sand and step happily and hopefully over it. On to better things...
