B-day thoughts

I just turned 26 this past Monday. WHOO! I’m sure like everybody else a lot of reflection and evaluation comes when your birthday rolls around. To give you a little background… my birthday last year was nothing like this year. I had just gone through a break-up with someone I was with for five years, so I was in a different headspace. I was worrying about what would happen in year, what my future would hold, and scared about this life change that I was going through. I know there’s a discussion on if we change or if we evolve and I think it’s a little bit of both. That breakup changed me in a way that I am so grateful for. I mean the list can go on and on but that’s not what this post is about. I know it’s extremely cliche to say… but I truly believe that things happen for a reason. At the time I think it was hard for me to admit but I think that was the best thing to have happened to me. It was the first time since I was 17 that I was able to be selfish and only think about myself. I was able to make decisions that only affected me and in a way I felt liberated! Also, if you’re wondering - I still absolutely 100% believe in love. My friend asked me that not too long ago and I didn’t even hesitate! Anyways, I’m getting off topic but 25 brought me so many amazing things, people, and experiences. To highlight a few, I met some amazing people that I hope to be lifelong friends, got a coaching job, and started my blog! I also learned that it’s ok to let go of things that aren’t meant for me anymore. I promised myself that this year I would invest in more things and people that make me happy, tell the people I love that I love them and support them in what they do, say yes to more experiences, and to be/love myself! I apologize if this post is kind of all over the place but not going to lie so was being 25! HAHA! I’m still figuring it all out and I am ok with that! What I do know for sure, is that a year flies by! If you’re going through something just know that time heals all and that change makes us grow. xo, P
