I am seventeen! ♡

March 13, 2016

So yesterday was my birthday, I'm seventeen now. Woah. Where did the time go? I'm so close to being an adult and I still get extremely excited when I walk into a stationery shop or a toy shop. Tshegofatso, why are you like this? It's okay because birthdays are my favourite and I had a blast yesterday! I spent my birthday with my sister and I wouldn't have it any other way. No matter how much we fight she'll always be my best friend. 

It's amazing how much difference a year can make and I am grateful for that. I am a completely different person now. I've grown, I've learnt, I lost a couple of friends, I've met new people and I embarked on new journeys.  

In the past I've let a lot of opportunities pass but now as I begin a new chapter of my life I want to do more. I have been doing a lot recently and I just want to continue doing whatever it is that I enjoy. I've learnt that it's good put yourself first sometimes and if it makes you happy you should keep doing it. Life is too short to care about what anyone has to say. Here's to being seventeen! Let's do this!

  4. It can be crazy to look at where you were at a year ago and where you are now. You don't realize how much you've changed until you take the time to reflect. Happy birthday!!
