I celebrated my 26th birthday over the weekend, and although the day was filled with trap music and bottomless cocktails, I couldn’t help but take a little time to reflect. They say to become older is to become wiser & according to the elders, with age comes more experience and less uncertainty. Although I respect the elders and live for a good quote myself, Im just enjoying every minute of this bumpy roller coaster ride called life! Sounds refreshing right? But, I’ll be the first to admit that I fall short, I get caught up in the “what ifs” that sometimes keep us awake at night. These things can hinder you from enjoying the beauty that is life! As I flip the page and open Chapter 26, I am promising myself to rely not on my own understanding. As we get older, we can’t help but reflect on how much time has passed and we begin to think about the “should haves, could haves, and would haves.” And not to mention these silly self imposed timelines we set for ourselves that serve no purpose accept igniting an anxiety attack! Like many of you, Im just a girl with goals trying to figure this ish out. If there is one thing these 26 years have taught me it is that Life is not ideal.
Timelines can be revised, there is more than one way to accomplish a goal, and most importantly its never to late to START!
26 Words I will Embrace in the Year 26!
