Reese Witherspoon Pens Extremely Candid Birthday Post

Reese Witherspoon is celebrating her birthday with a walk down memory lane.

In honor of her 43rd birthday today, the Big Little Lies star shared an inspiring message on Instagram, in which she reflected on the past year.

She wrote, “On the eve of my birthday, I’m reflecting on this past year. How many amazing people I met, the great fun I have had at work, friends I truly cherish, the people I have lost, the joys that definitely outweigh the sadnesses, and my loving family always at the center of everything.”

Witherspoon went on to explain why she’s reflecting on the past, adding, “I always remember that saying, ‘Don’t look back, you’re not going that way,’ but I want to look back a minute before I go forward again and say thank you to everyone who follows me here, everyone who came to see me speak this year, everyone who took time to say hi or say something positive, everyone who showed me their heart and their kindness.”

The Draper James founder concluded her post by thanking fans for their continued support: “I am so lucky to walk through this world with you all. [Heart emoji] Reese.”

Us, too, Reese. Us, too.
