Last week Tuesday, December 30th, I celebrated my 24th birthday. Wow, I can’t believe I am actually admitting to my real age. May not seem like a big deal but to me it is. My entire life, I’ve always claimed an age other than my own. I claimed to be older to older men and my elders; and I claimed to be younger to perverts. Well this year, I am just me: 24 years old. Not “twenty something.” Not “twenty sexy.” Not “twenty one.” Not “twenty four years young.” Just 24.

I didn’t do much. I brought it in with someone who means more to me than Cheesecake Factory- my godson Amir. I went to work in the morning. Did a little shopping in the evening, then realized I’m not about that life anymore and returned everything. Came home, went to bed.

This post could’ve potentially been an essay about the many lessons I’ve learned throughout the year. The takeaways. The successes. The experiences. And all the other good stories people reflect on during their birthdays. But I decided against it all. I’ll just leave you with a few things I plan to hold dear to me in 2015.

-I am peculiar (weird). I am set apart. I am not of this world. I live in this world.
– If I delight in the Lord, He gives me my heart desires.
– I can do all things in Christ who gives me the strength.
-There are no Jones to keep up with. I keep up with Christ.
– Where my treasures are, there my heart lies.

-God Bless You all! Thanks for the continuous support and love.
