Julie Gichuru celebrates 49th birthday with 5 great reflections
Happy 49th birthday Julie!
The former Citizen TV journalist on her Instagram page noted she was happy to have celebrated her birthday in better conditions unlike in 2021 when she was in mourning.
The mother of four further said she learnt that getting through a loss was not as easy as she thought it to be but thankful she got through it.
“Every part of me is thankful to have been on this epic journey of life. My 48th year was tough, marked by our devastating loss at the end of 2021, but it was also a year of blessings - filled with grace, kindness and healing.
“No one promised this life would be easy - but we must never get so lost in the loss, grief and challenge that we cannot see the blessings and give thanks for the opportunities,” said Julie.
In Julie’s reflections, she realized she knows little, listens more keenly, questions more, makes less judgements and is grateful for every new day.
“As I get older I realise I know less; I ask more questions. I listen more keenly. I make less judgements. I appreciate each new day as a blessing and an opportunity to try to do my best, one more time. It is not promised and so I am thankful for each new day 🙏
As I head into my 49th year I wish you love, peace, fulfilment, grace, and blessings beyond your hopes and expectations ❤️❤️❤️” Julie concluded.
Julie was showered by more wishes from friends and family.
