This year on November 22,2017 I, Storie Stone, turned 27.

The days leading up to my birthday I was nonchalant and very stand offish because it just felt like a regular day until I woke up Wednesday…afternoon. It sat in my mind that I wasn’t quite 30, but I was a little ways from 20 as well. To date my list of accomplishments has only gotten longer and I had to stop and thank God for how far I’ve actually come. 23, I graduated college. By 25, I had moved to a place where I knew no one, with nothing to call my own, And what I did have Kia Motors finance came and got. I don’t regret a thing. At 27, I am so grateful for the mishaps, the broken promises, the heartaches, the tears and the inevitable struggle to get to this point because my life is the definition of beautiful.

I am surrounded by people who LOVE me. Love everything about me, my thoughts, my flaws, my laugh, my tears, my fears, my passions, my breakdowns and breakthroughs. I have touched thousands of hearts and minds with the gift that God gave to me and only me in the most special way He could. In life it is most important to take every year and make it better than the last. Spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially and physically. Life owes you everything that you want out of it, but it is completely up to you to make it all happen the way that you want it to.

In the last year I think I have learned a very huge lesson and its so crazy because God brings them to me every year the night before my birthday. Being multi faceted or multi-talented, however you want to word it, is a gift and a curse. I am great at a PLETHORA of things ok! GREAT. I have yet to come across something that I am unable to master and make my own (with the exception of drawing). But that’s the problem right there, I am wonderful at all of these different things that I try to push myself to do them all at once. But I suck at juggling and letting things go when I need to. This year I became so overwhelmed that it brought me to tears because my heart isn’t ready to detach from anything yet. I don’t like things done prematurely and if they are I feel like it’s half done and bad on my part. So I cry, but I continue to push until I’m exhausted. Not ok. Ever.

But this year, with this lesson, God gave me a partner. Gave me the embodiment of unconditional, sacrificial, soul binding love that understands my cries even when I do not. And I could not be more grateful and speechless in the care that he takes to my fragile dreams and the normalcy of pain and emotional disconnect. My birthday was so special this year that when it was all over I cried when he wasn’t looking because I hadn’t felt that loved on a day God gave to me in a very long time. I’m crying now. This is going to be a great year for me and I’m ready for this lesson on transparent vulnerability. I’m so sure of it now and it’s because of him at 27.
