It’s a few hours left of being 28 years old and I’m happy to say it was the one of the best year of my life. I might be lost and not sure of what’s to come professionally but everything will fall into place.
One of the biggest lessons of the year is to treat yourself the way you would want the 5 year old version of yourself to be treated. I found this wonderful quote:
“Picture yourself when you were five. In fact, dig out a photo of little you at that time and tape it to your mirror. How would you treat her, love her, feed her? How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you? I bet you would protect her fiercely while giving her space to spread her itty-bitty wings. She’d get naps, healthy food, imagination time, and adventures into the wild. If playground bullies hurt her feelings, you’d hug her tears away and give her perspective. When tantrums or meltdowns turned her into a poltergeist, you’d demand a loving time-out in the naughty chair. From this day forward I want you to extend that same compassion to your adult self.” -Kris Carr
Tomorrow begins my last year of my 20s. Thanks to my boyfriend for assisting in making this year incredible. I’ve more in love with you and so stoked for all of the great things that will happen for us. Thanks for seriously being my rock, for loving me through every type of situation and for never letting me down like everyone else has over the years. You’re my rock and you continue to save my life more times than you ever realize. Thank you for making me fall in love with the beach again(spending the whole day at the beach in West Palm was perfect on your birthday), for continuing to make me laugh so hard, especially if it’s your SnapChats and for not taking anything for granted and thanking every single second for your love and cuteness. You’re my best friend.
Thank you God for giving me life, for allowing me to feel and experience things most will never and for giving me the opportunity to begin every single day all over again.
I’m hopeful for 29. 🌸🥂🍰🎉
