23rd Birthday!

Yesterday (October 29th) was my 23rd birthday.

As some of you know, my feelings about my birthday has been mixed for a few years. My 20th, 22nd and 23rd birthday has been really good, meaning I had a really great day yesterday. I really enjoyed it (minus a therapy session, bad timing but I decided to not dwell on it because it could ruin things).

My family woke me up at 9am with champagne, tea and fruit salad, which we ate while drinking champagne. They also brought me a bunch of presents which I opened in bed.

I’ve never been served breakfast in bed ever and I had no idea this was going to happen, so I was really surprised and had such a nice morning! I was really happy about that. From my dad I got five driving lessons and a notebook (I love notebooks).

My stepmother gave me all the books published in the “Song of Ice and Fire” series, the TV-series “Game of Thrones” is based on these books and I recently finished GoT and wanted to read the books, so I was really happy with that. I feel really excited about reading them – which is good because I struggle with reading due to bad concentration. I also got a few smaller things and there’s a few presents that haven’t arrived yet.

I did nothing in particular for a few hours before I got dressed and went to see my therapist.

And my hair has gotten ridiculously long! Needs a trim though, will probably do that on friday. (Hand is on my hip)

And my nails matched my dress, which I don’t have any good pictures of, except from the picture above. This design in called Saran Wrap and I actually made a tutorial on how to make it back in January, post can be found [HERE]. I used four colors though, not just two as the example in my tutorial. Black, white, grey & silver + topcoat & basecoat.

After my session I spent some time online, slept for an hour and went out for dinner with my family. I didn’t really want to go to therapy or out for dinner because I was feeling slightly anxious all day, but I’m really glad I did because the day turned out so good in the end. I’m glad I managed to get through all my challenges, I’m glad I didn’t let agoraphobia hold me back from having a great day.

(I’m sorry all the pictures are enormous, but they’re from my phone and it would look weird if I cropped them)

I got so many nice messages from readers/followers and it contributed to making my day even better. I seriously feel really emotional about it because I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. I hope I’ll be able to respond to all of them, if not – thank you so, so much. ♡♡♡

    Det at du greide å legge det som ble vanskelig i terapitimen nok til side til å greie å få en fin feiring videre, er utrolig sterkt! Jeg tenker at det i seg selv er et tegn på fremgang?:)
    Håper november har behandlet deg godt så langt, og at du får ei fin helg fylt av mestringsfølelse, gode stunder og snille hunder!
