*** Disclaimer: I struggled with depression and thoughts of suicide in my past. This is apart of my story and my truth. I am sharing this to help others.

Most people are really excited about their birthday.

They talk about the plans they have for the day.

They talk about the gifts and phone calls they received.

They even get excited when people give them a birthday shout out on social media...

I think differently though.

I'm just thankful to be alive.

When it is my birthday, I feel immensely blessed.

I think back on the years of having suicidal thoughts every single day.

I think back on the times when I thought I may not make it because of what depression had done to my body.

I think back on the times I begged God to just take me away.

Birthdays are special to me,

But because of my past, EVERY DAY IS A BLESSING.

I wake up quite often and thank God that I am alive.

I never thought that I would make it this far, but God had other plans.

Gods plans are so much better.

When I wanted to give up, God comforted me.

God sat with me and listened to my cries.

God said do not give up, because your days will not always be like this.
