TURNING 36: THIRTY SIX GOING ON SIXTEEN!
DO YOU KNOW TODAY'S MY BIRTHDAY?
IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW, LET ME TELL YOU.
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! SO I CAN DO ANYHOW, ACT ANYHOW, WRITE ANYHOW, INCLUDING WRITING TODAY'S POST IN ALL CAPS!
IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, CORRECT ME IN THE COMMENT SECTION!
Okay, let me write normal. The excitement is just too much.
GO AND READ MY LAST BIRTHDAY POST! Thirty plus five: A sneak peak into my life. Thank you, don't mention!
First, let me ask, are you a birthday freak like me? I know there are people who don't really feel anything when it's their birthday. As a matter of fact, they don't even like mentioning anything about their birthday because according to them it reminds them of how long they have been on earth and this subtle reminder makes them feel like they're getting old. Some even feel sobber because they may not have achieved much for their age by their own yardstick of measure.
Hahaha. I see such people and I just laugh. I wish they would see life from a different perspective and change their measuring tool.
For me, the longer I live on earth, the younger I grow. Hey! That's my ideology.
I believe that life itself is an achievement. Do you know how many people were born on the same day as you who have passed on? I am not sure you know. If you do, you would view life from the perspective of GRATITUDE. You should read my 31 things I am grateful for, I promise you it will help you.
One thing they fail to realize is that, where there is life, there is hope! Hope is what we, the living, hold on to, and that is a strong advantage we have over the dead.
Seems this birthday post is turning into an aspire to perspire post! Oh God help me! It's my birthday for Christ's sake, why am I turning into a motivational speaker?
Back to me!
So today, I declare it as I stand with my full chest before Heavens and the Earth, the Air, Land, and Sea, the 4 corners of the earth, the Sun, Moon, and Stars, that I have defeated death 36 freaking times!
Make some noise people! WHOOOOOOOP!!!
It hasn't been an easy battle you know. But I am grateful to still be alive. I may not have achieved all that I want to at this age but I am indeed blessed that I still have the opportunity to. I count my blessings daily and I name them one by one.
GOD HAS BEEN GRACIOUS, MERCIFUL, AND KIND!
A big shout out to all those who have in many ways been a help and support to me, my family, brand, blog, business, career, and everything that concerns me. They have carried my matter on their head like Agege bread, swallowed Paracetamol for my headaches, made their shoulders available for me to cry on, allowed me to inconvenience them without taking offense.
If I start mentioning names, I won't finish today. You know yourselves, in form of Parents, Siblings, Extended Family, Friends, Colleagues, Former Colleagues, Fellow Bloggers, Acquaintances, Employers, Readers, Everyone! I love and appreciate you!
TORY TELLER LOVES YOU!
Just so you know, this is the least you will be seeing of Tory Teller! Watch out for more!
As always, there will be another blog post today with a special announcement. You know I love drama!
Quick question y'all, How can someone be turning 36 and be looking like a 16-year-old?
Sending y'all truckloads of love and kisses!
