Alive at 31

I don’t normally take solo pictures of myself, not unless I have to. I often update my Facebook wall with photos but not of my face but of my kids, food, flowers or other interesting shots of things I see beautiful. Anyway, since it’s my blog, I am entitled to love myself a little bit by posting these photos taken a day after I turned 31 for remembrance purposes.

As much as possible, I take photos of how I look each year I celebrate my birthday so to compare them from previous years. Oh man, I’m really 31 now! I remember, when I was 17… I was rushing to be 18 so that I won’t scare men of my age. I was itching to find a serious man at that age and when I told them how old I was, they seemed to back out and never chat with me again. When I was 18, I was the happiest. A couple of years later, here I am… amazed at how the years went by so quickly.

Yes, I am 31 and a secret to confess, I have not had an experience working from outside the house. I mean, I only had a brief 3 months paid occupation when I was single and that’s it. All I was focusing in my younger years was to find a man to marry.

I found the one for me and now have a close-knit family of my own. I am a full-time mom, a blogger and does a job that pays so little online. I don’t complain being at home though. Not all mothers have the privilege to stay home, take care of their kids and have no boss around. Some are forced to work just so to make ends meet, I am not. My husband provides for the family and consider myself lucky because of the stable job he has.

Thankful to the Heavens above for the life’s blessings He poured into me and to my family. For all the greatness life has to offer and for granting me my biggest dream in life.
