Happy Birthday to Me!!! I'm now the grand age of 30! And on this day, I got up and got dressed to go church to celebrate this milestone day. On the serious tip...I should've been dead. I've suffered from depression on and off for the last three years. Yet every year I make it to my birthday I secretly celebrate that I haven't taken my life and God gave me another chance. He's God of second chances...

This year I'm happy on my birthday. I wearing a brand new $10 dress from this store called Simply Fashions. It's like Forever 21 for big girls!. My shoes are Colin Stuart( Victoria's Secret) that I got at Salvation Army brand new for 5.99.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper-that's weapons of depression, unhappiness, debt, low self esteemed. None of them shall prosper. You've done something really great, that most of us envy. your blog is beautiful. Speak from your heart, you don't know how many other young ladies (yes 30 is still young I hope :) will identify with you and what you go thru....

I just found your blog and had to comment. You are a very beautiful woman. Don't let the pressures of life allow you to EVER take your life. I hope you can find a good therapist in your town who you can talk to. Or a unbiased friend. You statement about depression resonated with me. I have suffered with depression over half of my life. Some days it is a struggle to keep going but I do. Each year it's get better. You made it to 30 you are still fabu and don't let anyone tell you different. Stay strong my sister there are many of us out here Lean on the strength of us black women we are STRONG!!!!! My prayer for you is God grant you the desires of your heart and that he sends you what you NEED to bring up out of depression and make your way easier.
P.S. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
Much Luv from Cali
