31 years old

Today is my birthday first off I'm 31. What's the big deal? Why is it that women lie about their age? I'm proud of the years I have made it and feel that age also encompasses wisdom and knowledge. Today as I was in yoga I had an ah ha moment. Seriously tears were streaming from my soul with understanding. This year has been, to say the least a battle. One thing after another. And the cherry on top was my tumor removal surgery. I've recently been really stuck on why have I had to try so hard and dig so deep? Why has this been so painful? And why have I had to become so strong? But today in restorative yoga I learned something... Instead of focusing on the  hardships. I learned that I'm stronger then I ever knew. I know that there was a reason why I'm here. To raise my family in strength and in the gospel. So today not only am I grateful for another year of growth and learning. But I have a new strenght that I never ever had. Now to focus on the continued healing and recovery. I am so blessed. I have the greatest family and friends in the world.
