I earned you; each and every one of you. There was a time when I first saw you that I panicked and thought life was going too fast but now, now I embrace you. I love how you shimmer in the sunlight. I love how you add character and accentuate my wisdom and confidence that has only arrived through experience. I love how you cradle my eyes when I smile, because in doing that I am reminded that I live a life filled with happiness and gratitude. The years may be passing by but I am welcoming the beauty that comes from a life well lived from the inside out and look forward to so many more to come.
