26 Forever

It's my birthday! I'm 36 today, which is wild because I don't feel at all like I'm 36. I feel like I'm 26.

I'm at a really weird point in my life where I feel like I lost a decade to being tired. Yes... you read that right. I was exhausted for a decade, probably longer. I felt like I lost my identity to the title "MOM" and am only now figuring out who the heck I am and what I want (aside from the fabulous title of Mom and Wife) really there's so much more than those two things that I am.

Here's who I am right now:
 An ocean loving mermaid happy under the water with strong, powerful legs that will never be thin, but carry strength and grace.
A reggae loving, island girl that needs to be around salt water and hear island jams on the daily.
 A bad ass, black nail loving, crazy hair colored, makeup wearing dork that probably swears too much, dances too crazily, and loves too fiercely.
A woman that gets hurt by past traumas and is working on rebuilding to not hurt anymore, to see the light in every day, to trust instincts, and be grateful for the present.

Happy 36th birthday to me!
