Osaka's letter on her 26th birthday
Last Monday, Osaka turned 26. A couple of days later, Osaka had something on her mind that she wanted to share with others. "Where has the time gone? I look back on my life and it feels like I'm rewinding an old VHS tape, it flashes by so quickly and suddenly I'm here in the present.
I often try to retrace my steps to figure out how did I end up here, I know I say this often but I truly still feel like that kid playing on public courts in Queens, NY. Randomly I wonder if I'm doing okay, is there a correct path to take in life or have I veered off onto the scenic route for a little bit? However, I've now come into the mindset that I can only keep moving forward and everything that will be, will be.
Something I had to conquer recently is fighting the thought that I won't be a good mom. So many doubts raced through my head I had to swat them away like mosquitoes. Looking into Shai's eyes and holding her I always think, 'wow this little person depends on me so much, I have to do better' It's such a strange feeling watching your kid grow, you blink and they're double the size in a few months.
Gratefulness reminds me to breathe and take in the little things (and the big ones). I'm so grateful to have another year and I'm so thankful to everyone that believes in me, love you and thank you," Osaka said.
