“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening[…]Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.” — Alice Walker

Nah b 24 is where its at
Thank you love!! Im sorry I missed this!
I was so down on myself this week. I had felt so ugly and unattractive and worthless. It was like a black cloud was over my head. It was bad. But today I feel a lot better. I wore makeup all week and dressed nice hoping to get out of my funk and now today the spark finally hit and I feel a lot better. I’m glad too because my birthday is on Sunday, and I would hate to enter into that day with the attitude I’ve had about myself this week. I would never want anyone to feel that way about themselves.
I still don’t even know what I wanna do for my birthday. I always thought of 24 being a HUGE birthday for myself, and that I would go all out and party but I literally don’t know what to do and kind of don’t care if we don’t do anything but stay home and drink and play board games. All I know is that I wanna spend the day with my girlfriends.
