I just recently celebrated my 25th birthday a few weeks ago and if it wasn’t because of my family and friends, it would’ve been just another day for me. I kinda stopped getting excited about my birthday since after I celebrated my 21st.
Birthday is a day to remember the moment we were brought into this world. However, it hasn’t been like that for me for so long. Instead of looking back and remembering that day, I look back and celebrate all the days after. Those are the days that, I think, are more important. Days that make us who we are today. I always say this and I’ll say it again. I may not be where I want to be at 25 but I am grateful for all the successes, failures, pains, heartaches, happiness, and mistakes I’ve been through. It is so easy to regret some of the things that happened in my life but I try not to think that way now. I believe 100% that things do happen for a reason and everything is a learning experience. I am just thankful for another year that has gone by and another chance to make things right and make things happen.
Thank you for my family and friends who greeted and celebrated with me on that day and the days after. ❤ Check out #piasjourneyto25 (click the link or go to your instagram) to see all my posts from the day after my birthday last year leading to my birthday this year. 🙂 What should be my next hashtag? LOL
My family ordered from Dominos and we stayed in and enjoyed some quality time.
“Happy Birthday Ate (Big Sister) Pia (my nickname)!” This was my birthday cake from my little bro who’s only a year younger than me. He always makes sure that I have a birthday cake and candle to blow on my birthday. ❤
The next day, my ladies took me to lunch at a cute local restaurant in Downtown Jersey City called Marco & Pepe.
