Yesterday was my birthday, I’m seventeen!
I suppose I should take a road trip, find myself, learn to play acoustic guitar and grow my hair long. Perhaps I’ll wear it in plaits, skip through daisy-filled fields and find my true love at a bowling for soup gig. I’m kidding with you, I think I’ll just learn to drive for now. I spent yesterday with my closest friends- a little low key barbecue in my back garden. Burned sausages, good music and wonderful company. I can’t think of any better way to celebrate!
If you’d told me just a few years ago that I’d be as healthy, happy and busy as I am now, I’d probably have cried at the absurdity of it. I felt like an outsider, watching my life go by and I never dared to dream I could be this happy and in control so soon. With my improved health has come the opportunity to work hard on my blog, attend and enjoy college and even spend time with my friends and family. When I look back at everything that I’ve achieved over the last year I couldn’t be more proud of myself, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me before my next birthday!
