It’s so crazy to think that I’m 25 years old already. Where has the time gone? Do you ever look at your life and think “damn I didn’t think I’d be here at this age”? I thought I’d be in a completely different place…further along, more successful, happier… I thought I’d have a house, a fiancé, and probably a dog by now. Knowing I have none of those things at times almost makes me sad and regretful of the things in life I WISH I had, or had done… Half the time I wonder what the fuck I’m even doing or where I’m headed…but then when I realllllyyy think about it… I realize how hard it was to get here where I am now. All of the things I’ve gone through; conquering failed relationships, difficult jobs, challenging friendships, and falling flat on my face from my own choices over and over- I realized that I’ve been working my ass off to become this person that I am today, 25 years later, and I have to be proud of that and not wishing I was something or somewhere else.
At the end of the day you have to live every single day as if you don’t get one more, work hard for what you want, learn to love the person you are, keep constantly growing, never forget to find happiness in the little things, and give yourself a pat on the back every once and a while.
Every decision that you’ve made has led you to this moment and where you are in your life. Be proud of the person you have become, because it wasn’t easy to become that person. Every heart-break has strengthened you, every difficult situation has built you, every obstacle you have overcome. Always remind yourself that you’ve come a long way, and the journey isn’t over yet, it’s only beginning.
