Today is the day. I'm officially 27 years old. 27! This one feels oddly symbolic and like no other birthday I've experienced yet. My mind is in flux between "I'm already 27?" and "I'm only 27?". I have spent some time over the past few days thinking back on my previous birthdays and wondering what makes 27 feel so much different. I have finally come to the realization that it's not any one thing, it's everything.
I was inspired to create the design above as I feel it's a perfect representation of this point in my life. There are so many people and experiences that have guided me here. 27 is a little of this and a little of that. It's taking what you have at hand and making it work. It's about figuring it out along the way and learning as we go. It's about deciding what makes you happy, healthy, and strong and holding onto it with everything you have.
"Don't wait. The time will never be just right." - Napoleon Hill
I feel so thankful for 26 and everything is has taught me in terms of exploration, successes and the unknown. It's been a good year and one that is a little bittersweet to leave behind, but I have a feeling 27 is going to be quite the adventure! I'm looking forward to a year full of joy, love and seeking out the simple. I have so many things I would like to accomplish, so thank you for your encouragement and following along on this journey. 27, let's do this!
