29. A birthday post.

Today i am 29. 

The last year before I turn 30 and start a new decade. 
So, with that in mind I decided to do something a little unconventional. 
I wanted to write a letter to myself. What 29 year old Samantha would tell the past 28 year old version. Sounds weird I know, but i find there's healing in writing it down. So without further ado, my Birthday Letter to my 28 year old self. 

Dearest Samantha,

I realize this past year has been a tough one, but you've come out on the other side victorious. I know that you've dealt with many heartaches and confusion and that finding out endometriosis could be a possible battle you'd be faced with was the hardest blow of all. But take courage dear heart, you are stronger than you realize. You can fight this and overcome and you will be a mother in the end. People always say that things may not come to you how you think they will and I think that maybe in this case that might be true. But don't be afraid, the blessing is coming. It's on it's way. 

I'm so proud of you that you branched out of your shell and formed new and wonderful friendships with some amazing girls. It was scary for you, I know. You tend wear your heart on your sleeve and expect people to treat it with love and understanding. Who would have thought that'd you'd finally find some genuine souls that you could connect with and call your friends. That are genuine and true. I am so happy for this, they came into your life when you needed them most. Funny how that happens isn't it. 

You've experienced so much healing this year, mostly in your heart. I know that was hard to let go of, you've been carrying it for so long. But it was never your fault to begin with, it was never your burden to carry. But you being you, took it on yourself and kept it close because it had become a familiar friend. But the healing is truly in the release and the true forgiveness is what follows. I feel like now you can take a huge step forward into all that God has for you. 29 is going to be your best year yet. 

Don't lose sight of your dreams, Samantha. Don't get discouraged when things appear to not be going your way. You will look back on this past year and remember that God is always faithful. You are an overcomer! You are strong and confident. Don't be intimidated by others. Keep dreaming, keep running after what you want. You are enough. You are brave. 
I can't wait to see what this new year brings for you. 

Happy Birthday!!!
