The month of April is the month where all the self motivators; fearless spirits and beautiful minds were born. – FitnessBae®
If there is anyone who looks forward to their birthday it has to be me! I love celebrating my big day in any way that brings a smile on my face. I am one of those individuals who will go out and buy herself a gift because I learnt from a birthday many years ago that if you don’t make your day special on your own no one else will. This year I already got myself a new phone and I might just throw in a pair of quality running shoes in the mix and I will bug my Husby(he is my friend not my husband but still call him Husby, strange I know!) for perhaps a sports watch and I know he will tell me I should go and jump over a cliff. LOL
The past year has taught me many different lessons but today I will share two of them with you.
The first lesson is that life is too short to hope and wish that good things will come your way. If you want something you have to go out there and get it yourself. Yes, you have heard this line before but trust me, it’s true. I want my Fitness Bae Brand to grow in a very big way and because of that I am working over time to make it happen. I don’t do it half halfheartedly, I give it my 110% attention and that is the reason why you see me at events in and around town. I want to continue to learn how to be a better person and how to make my brand locally, regionally and some day internationally recognised. I am doing everything in my power to be visible in a world full of so many creatives but I know that some day soon my hard work will pay off.
The second lesson is that you can’t change a human being. I am dead serious about this one. A human being who can change is a human being who wants to change on their own. I remember having this conversation over a bottle of wine a few weeks ago with a friend of mine. We talked about how most women get into relationships and want to change someone from the way they dress, talk, heck; even how they walk! We both concluded that people are not projects and it is not anyone’s job to try and change them into a completely different person. I am personally guilty of this and in the past I have tried to change a partner into my specifications and that went downhill pretty fast. The long and the short of it is that if you love someone you have to take them as they are and learn to live with both their good and bad side, no one is perfect darling.
I am thankful for all the wonderful friends that surround me who contribute to my sanity; without them I would probably be in a very dark place. Thank you to everyone who sent Voice Notes, Birthday Wishes, the early morning phone calls; I am in filled with nothing but warm fuzzy feelings. One of the messages I received this morning got me all teary eyed and officially made my birthday extra special.
Happy Birthday love!
You are at the top of my list for people I have met on Twitter, not Malawian, that I can actually call a friend.
Today on your birthday I want you to celebrate you: the beautiful person that you are- you love people and you love serving people.
This year has all things falling into place for you (still waiting for the abs -though you are already goals to me 😏😉)
So am wishing you all the strength, positivity & energy required to see you through this year-living your dream & kicking ass while at it!
May God shock you with what He will do to and with your life. May you remain open, available & teachable.
Happy 21st birthday Ma Kupsy😏
