Happy Birthday to me.

Wow, I am 36 today. So far, doesn't feel much different to yesterday when I was 35. But boy does it feel vastly different to when I turned 35. Hugely different. On my 35th birthday I was 20 kg's heavier, hugely depressed, in chronic pain and was starting to think to myself, if this is what the remainder of my life was going to be like, I wasn't sure if I could stand it. Everything seemed so insurmountable, even getting out of bed. I couldn't even get myself going for my children and husband. What a shame it would have been if all my children knew was a sad and angry mother.

Fast forward 12 months and I am a shadow of my former self physically, but mentally I am a totally different person. Nothing seems to get me down now. Everyday is a blessing. I am thankful for everything even the tough things that are thrown my way. I can do anything I set my mind to all I have to do is believe.

Your hard work will be rewarded.
