Another Year Older

80bb85bcde1280221abe30da977657e4Another year older, another year wiser…Well it’s my birthday, and I’m 24! I’m not one to be overly excited about my own, more so for everyone else’s. The only thing I ever really want is to be on a beach or traveling, which I have been for the past 5 years, and although it wasn’t possible for a tropical vacation this year, I did manage to book a weekend away and have a surprise trip to LA this month thanks to my amazing roommate.

Yes, those worrying thoughts we get as we get older of how my life isn’t where I had planned it to be at this age, or that marriage isn’t in my near future, or that I haven’t been to Africa to volunteer, but the truth is life doesn’t have a plan. It’s when you let go of the idea that every moment in your life is supposed to happen at a specific point, that all those dreams and goals begin to unfold in ways you never though possible. I may not be on the sunny shores of Jamaica with my best friend, but I will be in her wedding next year, and I know the chance to see the world is ahead of me! This past year I’ve learned a lot about myself, had many new experiences, and I’m in a position in my career that will only bring me great opportunities to make all my dreams come true. Life is beautiful, and I’m going to savor every second of it!
