“There’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.” – Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of being a Wallflower
My head has been over the place lately and I haven’t really been myself for many reasons; the hard life of a 21 year, haha. So when I got the chance to read Day 17 ‘use your strength’ I thought this couldn’t have come at a better time. It is my not so little sister’s 20th birthday today and I was thinking to myself one of my biggest strength is Love and what better way to use it. I didn’t want to go out and buy her new iPad because that won’t make her happy; 5 months down the line instead I decided to book a day off work, wake up super early to decorate the house with loads of balloons and happy birthday banners. Her reaction said a thousand words, that is that happiness money cannot buy.
Gifty, that’s such a nice thing you did for you sister and reminds us that happiness doesn’t have to cost!
And Gifty – you are love, love, love. I am glad you can see that clearly, because those around you can. And no better way to celebrate a birthday. BTW mine is 29 August (just in case you are in the area!). Hugs xx
Gifty, what a great sister you must be. Banners and balloons – that is such a lovely thing to do.
I love this Gifty – this for me would be a perfect birthday gift! :)
