On Friday the 23rd of August I celebrated my 15th birthday. And on Saturday I was surrounded by many of my close friends to enjoy a fabulous high tea at the Florentine Tea Room.
This post is a mixture of things- some thoughts as well as a little bit of a rave about how in love I am with this cafe.
Every year for me, it seems that birthdays pass by without me really stopping to think about how the last year has been and what I want to happen in the next year of my life. As I have had a lot going on for me health wise recently, I have really learned to think about how much I have to be grateful for. Although this last year has been anything but easy, I have had huge amounts of support given to me at my lowest times, and even when I have been disappointed with the lack of support from those whom I considered close friends I am thankful that I can now see that those people are not the type of people who I should still consider close friends. I have also taken the time to set goals and think about where I want to be this time next year. My priority right now is to get my health back on track, but as I start next year at a new school I wish to start well and really focus on school to ensure that if my health were to take another unexpected turn, I would not feel so stressed and behind as I do now. Something else that I would like to do is explore the concept of happiness, I want to do things not for others reactions but simply to make myself happy. Whether that be expressing gratitude, taking time out to relax or just exploring more often, I want to start a journey to feel content.
And now for my rave...
Over all, it was a spectacular day, I am so thankful for the people who shared it with me and for the wonderful cafe that I got to spend it in.
On a side note, I'm going to try get into my regular posting again- I've got a list of post ideas! But bare with me I'm still feeling behind with my school work and with my book so I might go AWOL for a bit.
Until next time, take care, live in the moment.
