This past weekend I celebrated my 26th birthday! 🥳 Some people aren’t really into birthdays, but I’ve always felt it’s important to take the time to celebrate. I will always view aging as a gift, and that is something we need to celebrate! I also enjoy taking a moment to reflect on the past year, where I’ve come, and where I’m going.
My 25th birthday was a big deal and I was VERY excited to finally be in my mid-twenties! This year wasn’t quite as big of a deal, but I still wanted to find a way to celebrate, especially since it was my first time celebrating my birthday in Toronto! I kept things fairly low-key and decided to go out with a few friends for dinner. We had a ton of fun celebrating and enjoying some delicious offers of the restaurant scene in Toronto!
I’ve gotta be honest with y’all: though my birthday itself was fun, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows over here. Truthfully, I had this entire blog post prepared about how I felt exactly where I was supposed to be and exactly right – but that’s not true. I’m not sure why I feel the need to sell a façade where I’m always happy and doing well, because that isn’t necessarily the case all the time.
The honest reflection this year on my birthday is that I’m still figuring everything out. Maybe that will always be the case, but I feel it particularly this year, in the midst of everything. I don’t feel quite settled because I’m working my way through a lot of different parts of my life that are constantly changing, and I’m not always sure how I feel about that. Though I always try to live my life to the fullest by pushing myself to take risks and make changes that I’m not 100% sure will work out, it can still bring many mixed emotions.
Point of the matter is: I’m figuring it out, and that’s okay. It still feels damn good to be 26. Despite all of the ups and downs – I’m truly filled with gratitude. I have a feeling this year is going to be a big one and I am looking forward to everything it is going to bring, in the near future.
One big hint to share with you all: I just may have a big creative project dropping in the next six months… 😛 if you want all of the details, make sure to subscribe to my email list to get all of the behind-the-scenes deets and be the first to hear when it drops! Sending you all love! ❤️
