It’s been a minute. I’m currently in the middle of relaunching my site on a new platform and let me tell you, it’s been the most confusing process. Tech and coding are not. my. thing… which leads me to lesson number one: hire people out for the things you’re not good at 😉 For real though, I’m so ready to be back in the blogging groove and have this site finished (soon). Right now it’s kind of a hot mess but whatevs- not everything can be perfect all the time (lesson number two, LOL)
From my two and a half years of blogging, this specific post has been my absolute favorite. It allows me the chance to really look back and think about what I’ve learned over year 24.
Let me preface this by saying that 24 was a huge transitional year for me. So much changed in both my personal and professional life. I finally felt like I had a better grip on what I was doing/pursuing in my work, and I experienced a lot of ups and downs personally in friendships & relationships.
Here’s the best of what I’ve got:
Gosh, 25. I thought my life would look so different at 25 growing up in my tiny Indiana town. I know people say all the time “but I wouldn’t trade my life now for the world” except I really mean that. Sometimes you have to give yourself a little grace. I’m doing what I always wanted to do but didn’t think I could do. I think anytime you move into conquering your fears and trusting your heart, you can’t go wrong in life. Of course, there have been some disappointments and things that I wanted to accomplish before I hit 25, but I’m letting those things go. If there’s a grand lesson in my life its that you really can’t plan or expect anything. All you can do is be the best you can be and show up for yourself every day. I feel the deep responsibility to live this next year to the utmost potential. The little girl in me who grew up in Indiana and dreamed of living in Los Angeles would have been so proud to know that I did it, but there’s still so much to be done. I’m not going to let ‘her’ down.
Neither should you. Make this year the best you can and remember the lessons along the way.
Hope this brightened your day with just a little bit of inspiration. As always, I’m so grateful that you’re here.
