I am still not sure what my purpose in this world is. All I hope for is to have been the reason someone smiled wider, laughed louder, cried less, loved deeper, felt braver, stood stronger, and dreamed bigger.
May I be more patient, more forgiving, more understanding, more loving, more generous, and more gracious to everyone.
May I be more comfortable in my own skin, more balanced in my emotions, more focused on my goals, more attentive to my needs, and more accepting of my flaws.
May I be more optimistic about my future, more proud of my strengths, more appreciative of my blessings, and more kind towards myself.
May I always be a blessing to others in need, a source of hope for the disheartened, a voice of reason to the confused, and a shoulder to cry on for the lonely.
May I be a gift to the world in ways even I cannot imagine.
Twenty-eight years down, many more to go.
