27 Years Today

27 years ago today I was born. In those 27 years that I have been here, I have discovered interesting ways that humans; interact, love, care, hurt, cheat, lie and heal. I have seen life and I have seen death. I have witnessed the decay of people I love and also found an enduring love and honour of spirit. I have struggled with invisible demons and had support by those that offered only the most noble of shelter. I have fought and I have won, I have fought and I have lost, I have fought and keep fighting. I have grown and developed, discovered new paths and clung to dreams so closely forged within.

My hope is that there will be a future that I can be proud of, to have done the things I want and need too, to be and act as the person that I am and to continue to understand and cherish the relationships and people that travel along this life with me.

    Congratulations on your birthday!! :) I wonder how many years it was that I came across your websites and blogs! I’m learning so much about humans and the world every year now too, and I’m left baffled all the time.
    Hope you have a great day!! :)

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you. :D It’s amazing how much you can learn, and sometimes in short periods of time. Not always academic things either, I mean life lessons.

      That is interesting! It is obviously years, but I am not sure how many. :O

    Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day and year and forever and always! I’m so lucky to know you :) Thanks to your parents for making such a great human!

    • Kya   •     Author

      :”””””””””””’D Thank you so much forever and ever. Loveadillo!

    Happy Birthday Kya! You’re a great human and I know all these years have been an amazing learning journey for you!

    • Kya   •     Author

      Aw, thank you so much. :)

    Happy birthday Kya! I’m actually surprised your 27, I thought you were younger to be honest because your posts are so easy to relate to but then again, people tell me I’m actually really mature for my age. So who knows.

    I hope you had the chance to celebrate your birthday with those you love!

    • Kya   •     Author

      I can certainly understand how someone could think I was a lot younger. :D I like to keep this blog as rather simple and hopefully a place to inspire happiness. There will probably come a time when I decide to have more thought provoking entries, just not right now.

      Thank you. :D

    Happy Birthday ~ Happy Every Day!

    And “Age is just a number” (not as a cliché but more..) .. it is how you feel on the inside!! :-)

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :D

    • Kya   •     Author

      OMG, how did you know!?!?!

  6. Melissa   •  

    Happy birthday Kya! Have fun today (and every other day! ;) ) :)


    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you so much! :D

  7. Nadia   •  

    Happy birthday, Kya!
    I wish you the very best for your future and I hope that your wishes come true! :D

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :’)

  8. Raisa   •  

    Happy birthday! I’m sure you’ll accomplish your hopes one day. You’re still young. :D

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :D It’s so easy to feel when you are at a certain age that time has gone so fast and loose the perspective that even though it can seem that way it’s not really. 50 years is different to 27. 80 years is different to 50. xD

  9. Alice   •  

    Happy Birthday! I am sorry I’m a day late :( Hope you had an awesome day!

    27 is still young (at least, that’s what I tell myself) you’ve got plenty of time to fulfil your dreams yet my dear.

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you so much! :D *squish*

    I hope my other comment got through.. It is still in the moderation que. Oh wait, I mean, what other comment? Sorry if it offended you. I was in the zone at that time.

    Anyway, in all seriousness, I hope you had a good birthday. This was a very reflective entry and I hope that things get better for you. It’s difficult getting older and dealing with everything that is has been or is being thrown at you. We should to skype soon.

    • Kya   •     Author


      Never offend. I think it was just because the name was different. :D

  11. Nicole   •  

    HAHA, woah.. It is not in que anymore. Weirddddd.

      Thanks so much for the offer, I really appreciate it. I know how hard you work and how precious your time is. I might think about it, and get back to you next year.

      When is your birthday? :O

  14. Jamie   •

    Happy birthday, Kya!! :)

    Beautifully written. Life is full of challenges & breaks. It’s important not to feel that what goes up, must come down, you know that feeling when everything is going right that you think everything is going to fall to pieces…yeah, that is not a good feeling! Anyway:

    “My hope is that there will be a future that I can be proud of, to have done the things I want and need too, to be and act as the person that I am and to continue to understand and cherish the relationships and people that travel along this life with me.”

    This. That is my hope too. I hope you get there one day, Kya. :)

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :’)

  26. Maria   •  

    Happy belated birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day and that you’ll have many happy & healthy years to come!

    It sounds like you have come a long way, and I think some of the best goals we can all have in life is to stay true to ourselves no matter what we do, what we are faced with, or where we come from/go to!

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! I agree with you on that point. It is important to be the person you are, and not pretend to be anyone else.

  27. Kirsten   •  

    Happy late birthday Kya! I hope it was a really great one. That was really beautifully written. I hope all your hopes and dreams come true!

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you so much! :)

    Hi Kya, I’m late (as usual), but here’s wishing you a good year ahead as 27! :) xxx

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :D

  31. Jenn   •  

    Happy belated Birthday. :) I love your outlook on life; it’s one I’m trying embrace – and I turn 30 in a couple of months.

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you. I hope you have a really good birthday and that it isn’t a huge problem for you. I think it can be harder sometimes when you reach one of the new digits. xD

  32. Kristine   •  

    Belated happy birthday, Kya!!!

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :)

  33. Crystal   •  

    Happy (late) birthday! Your wise beyond your years. :)

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! Some people say that, then other people say I am childish as well. Maybe I have bits of both. xD

  34. Michelle   •  

    Happy birthday! ^_^

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you! :D

  35. Evelyn   •  

    That was beautiful! It’s good to just stop and think about what we are and what we achieved till now.

    I think you will be proud of your future but I’m certain that you should be proud of your present. Your love and care with me, even being on the other side of the planet, changed my life, changed the way I treat and see others and comforts me everytime I need a friend, a word, attention and caring.

    You make yourself more present than people I see everyday and/or my own family. That means the world to me!

    Thanks for everything!!!

    • Kya   •     Author

      Aw, that is so lovely and kind of you to say. I have shared only the kindness that you have shown me, because you are a really lovely, kind, wonderful, special person. :’)

  36. Veronica   •  

    Happy Birthday Kya! I love how you reflect on your life when you have a birthday. Thinking about your past and future is not something we always do, but it shouldn’t be forgotten about!

    • Kya   •     Author

      Thank you. :)
