It’s my birthday!

I am a Gemini and if you know anything about Geminis we are all about wanting to be in the spotlight πŸ™‚ so of course I had to promote my birthday today!

Actually, I was never one for gifts – spending time with me is what I cherish. I have been blessed with friends that I call family. They are my rocks, my steel, my backbone, the loves of my life.

I woke up this morning to texts, posts, tweets and they all touch my heart. I have been through a lot the past year. Last year my birthday wasn’t so great. Instead of enjoying it I was stressing over situations and persons that I should not have been stressing over. This year it is all so different. I am different, yet still the same. A stronger version of me.

I had a wonderful dinner with two of my greatest friends last night. I couldn’t imagine my life without them in it. I’m lucky that I can say that about a lot of the people in my life – so many friendships that I cherish. The best gifts I could ever receive.

Tonight I am spending it with a guy that has won my heart. He is planning a special evening for just the two of us. He doesn’t make me wonder if I will see him or hear from him – he makes the effort. He is present and he wants to be, with me. I don’t have to ask. We have begun to talk about the future. It doesn’t scare me anymore, nor him either.Β  But we also enjoy the small moments together too. He knows it is not about presents or big parties or making a public show of how he feels – it is about time together. Always has been, always will be. We both said that we feel lucky to have found each other, again.

My life hasn’t been easy or perfect but I do feel lucky and blessed and most of all grateful for the people in it and who I am too. And that is the greatest gift I could ever hope for.

And thank you to everyone who reads, follows, comments, advises, and supports me and my blog – what a wonderful community to be a part of!

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.
