Once again, I’m another year older. As a tradition, allow me to reflect on a year and get all sloppy and sentimental on my birthday. Following my previous birthday pieces:
I’m quite lost at words at what to say.
Somehow the last year has been the best one. Or at least my mindset changed enough to appreciate all of the crap I went through.
Each year I surprise myself with my potential and I know it sounds so full of myself but damn, when is the right time to appreciate oneself if not on their birthday?
It was a year when I prospered professionally, financially and personally. I traveled a lot, worked a lot, and pretty much did whatever I felt like doing at the time.
Most importantly, 25 was the age I finally fully opened up to someone and let myself be vulnerable. Didn’t end well though so it was a year of heartbreak. My first real and proper one and it sucked and somehow I was still appreciating it was happening. (2021 was all about Him if you want to know more)
But even though we’re living in year 3 of a pandemic on a bring of war or climate catastrophe- whichever comes first- I was still grateful for every second of it.
Did I do things I regret in my 25? Absolutely. Would I do them again given the chance? Absolutely.
I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.
Doing more mistakes and still talking to my toxic ex. Being a couple of days away from moving to my new big apartment. Working hard and loving it. Eating junk food and hating that I’m loving it. Exercising and loving it but hating it at the time. Meeting new people and enjoying the opportunities. Having bad days. Having a good days…
Simply being 26 and appreciating everything that comes with it.
Whatever happens and after everything that happened so far, I know I can handle it and I’m looking forward to it.
I want to thank you all for sticking around for another year with me even though it wasn’t my most active one writing-wise. I can’t even promise you to write more cuz the one sure thing is unpredictability. Thank you for still having time to appreciate my little blogging hobby from time to time and motivating me in working on myself.
Last but not least, I wanna thank me. I wanna thank me for believing in me. I wanna thank me for doing all this hard work… and you know how it goes.
Happy birthday to me. XO
