A quarter of a century old…
I can’t believe another year of my life has faded, chills. There goes that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach again.
I haven’t achieved as much as I set out to achieve at 25 and I’m working on it, but I’ve learnt loads on my way here. I learnt that it’s okay to fail, learning from that failure, dusting myself off and trying again. I learnt to handle criticism, positive or negative. I learnt to talk less and listen more. I learnt to learn from my mistakes and other people’s mistakes. I learnt that older doesn’t automatically mean wiser. And last but not least, I learnt to associate myself with people who worked hard to achieve their dreams other than the ones who were just handed the dream.
I’m still learning.
Be it as it may, I believe I have grown and matured over the past couple of years. Mentally… not body wise, it seems I’m stuck with my 12 year old body… for life…eek! (Rings Dr. Miami).
Sometimes I go through Facebook/Instagram and see some of my former classmates getting married and having kids, and I’m out here thinking, wait… I’m still a kid! At heart anyway because my metabolism begs to differ (cue laughter that turns into hysterical crying).
Life is mysterious, and that’s the beauty about it. No one knows what the future holds. You just have to put your best foot forward, take the punches, fight like the beast you are and keep in mind that everything happens in its own time.
As I turn over this new chapter, I hope to laugh even more, love endlessly, take more risks and most of all live in the moment. Carpe Diem!
This is just the beginning!
