Here’s to 25
25 years ago I was born. How crazy is that… I’m 25 years old today. I feel like I’m secretly 50 in this body at times, possibly because I’ve been working for the last 7 years – 10 years if you start counting the years I freelanced in high school. I sometimes feel like I hit the fast-forward button, and here I am with the last several years going by in a blur.
Last night I went to a meditation class that really got me thinking about a lot. I was already a little emotional leading up to this birthday, but the class hit me directly in the feels. Why? I guess I was reflecting quite heavily on life and what I want. There’s so much I want to do – and had wanted to do – over the last two years, yet I never did. I don’t want to apologise like I used to every single time I didn’t update or make an effrt with my online ventures, I’ve decided to just “do” instead of dwelling on what it once was like.
I know it may sound crazy because in essence I have done a lot. Work itself – my day job – has been incredible, especially during the last 12 months. Yet, I can’t help but feel there’s more that can be done. My work ethic and wanting to always do more can be such a double-edged sword at times. It’s kinda hard to always keep up with your own expectations alongside the expectations of others.
What I’m trying to get at is that at 25 years old now, I really want to focus on everything I didn’t in the last year. There are so many behind-the-scenes stories to still tell, tips and tricks I want to put out there and share a bit of this new journey and mindset I’ve been exploring. I’ve changed a lot since starting this platform 8 years ago, and I think now is the perfect time to document this… not only for you, but for myself to look at.
Here’s to another year.
