On Being 30 and #Project30

Phew! Don’t really know what to say.. I don’t know how I’m going to collect my thoughts.. Writing while in transit to work.. Who knew, there’s some perks to not driving.. I get to blog.

Because I don’t know how to start, I’ll start with gratiude..

Today, I am 30.. As I write this my eyes are teary.. I don’t know why.. I can remember whatever I can from 30 yrs of existence and I am in immense unexplainable joy.. Just to be here.. Alive, with my family, with friends, and the thought of people who have loved me my entire life and I know will continually do so. I am so grateful for everything and anything and for whatever it is I lack, I am thankful. I feel so blessed and surrounded with love within our home and outside. All I can say is how thankful I am.. Beyond words.. Beyond imagination..

To the love of my life, my best friend, my hubby, my partner, the best father to my children, what joy you are to me! I couldn’t imagine life without you. You are an amazing person God has given me. I love you!

To my children, I never knew what life has to offer until you two came along. You two keep me young and even more alive. I will love you always! Always!

To my family, mom and dad, my siblings, the memories are always with me in my heart.. Your bunso is now 30! Yikes! I will never be where I am now if not for all your love, care and support. It is my wish to one day celebrate a birthday with you all! I love you and miss you so much!! See you soon!!

To all my friends.. What is life without you? You are the hidden force to humanity that keeps us accompanied through all the walks of life.. Thank you for the laughter, the silliness, for listening and for just being there.

To my creator, oh dear God, I don’t know what my life will be like, where I’ll be and where I’m headed if you haven’t redeemed me from my shortcomings. I will always remember how you saved me! My life is yours and for your purpose.

So today.. I thank all of you.. from the bottom of my heart..

If you are feeling blue today, come celebrate with me in your thoughts.. I hope to give you cheer and happiness as I celebrate today..

They say life begins at 40.. I say mine begins at 30.. And for everyone else.. If it hasn’t began yet, My wish is that it begins today!

And to mark this day.. I launch #Project30!! Hooray!! Stay tuned! You’ve always been supportive and for that I am trully greatful!

Here’s to being 30! And a little video clip Ricky made for me.


With love and gratitude,

    Hi Anne, I have been blessed just by reading your blog and how happy you are and seems to be at a good place. I appreciate how you share your love and passion to what you do best (to inspire people) and bring out the best in them. Today as you turn 30, I believe that you will begin to unfold those talents and skills God has given you. You are such a blessing to the people you surround with and I pray that God will grant all the desires of your heart for you are indeed a kind, loving and compassionate person. You inspire me to become a better mother who loves and cares for her children dearly. Lastly, wow this is the first time ever in my life that I have made a comment to any blogs out there! I was just touched how sincere and genuine a person you are. Have a great day! I’ll see you later! 🙂 Happy Happy Birthday!
