Another year has slipped by and I find it hard to believe where I’m at in life.
I am officially in my late twenties and the thought is a little daunting. I keep asking myself what I’ve accomplished and why I’m not making more of my life. I don’t dare voice these thoughts out loud because I know I would be faced with people telling me how wrong I am, how much I’ve accomplished, how much I’ve grown, etc. The joy of this blog is I can voice them and not have to hear them tell me face to face or through the phone. I’m weak sometimes. LOL
I don’t know about you, but no matter how many times someone tells me this I won’t believe them. I need to sit down and write out what I’ve got going for me and what I’m proud of. So, that’s exactly what I did today and here’s what I came up with:
I have two beautiful children who drive me absolutely insane because that’s what kids do, but I love them with all my heart.
I have a sexy husband who continues to love me through all of my faults, all our ups and downs, and all the hardships I’ve put us through.
I have made great friends and strengthened old friendships, all of whom give me unfiltered and honest advice, love, and opinions.
I have spent an entire year working on this blog and dedicating myself to where ever it may lead me.
I have spent another year in school, including summer semester, and came out on top with only one more semester to go at DVC before applying for Berkeley.
I have started my Girl Gang with a new found friend and it is thriving; despite the shit talking or uninterested responses I have gotten from some men.
I have a new project starting in a few short weeks (make sure to keep an eye out for that) that I’m really excited about starting and diving head first into.
I have 3 parents who truly love me with all their being, my brother and I are including each other in group texts (which is a big step for us), and I have an amazing extended family who I know I can count on no matter what.
When I sit and look at everything I have, I realize how blessed I truly am. I may not have it all together at 28 but I sure as fuck on my way. I can’t wait to see what this year holds for me!
Cheers to 28 and cheers to me!
