Today marks the beginning of my 25th year around the sun.
I thank the most high for everything and everyone I have in my life.
It’s funny, for me it seems that once you hit your 20s moments just fly by so quickly. It sure is scary as it is exciting. It’s been a crazy ride and with Gods grace, one that will continue for years and years to come.
The past few days I’ve really reflected on the happenings up to this day and mostly how much growth I’ve experienced. But I feel 25 is just the beginning for me. I dive into 25 with a clear mind, a focus which I found so hard to establish as of late, happiness and the love of the people around me, being at peace with situations and people who entered my life and exited so quick but who’s temporary presence allowed me to understand myself in so many ways, and most of all acceptance.
I’m lucky enough to share this transition with my dear twin brother who is a huge inspiration to me and who I love dearly. I can’t stress enough how important family is, they are my lifes greatest gift.
24, you were full of turmoil, and I did not let the happenings you exposed me to consume me. Instead I braved it all, with the help of others, and with the strength I mustered. I feel like I’ve emerged into a positive light, full of vibrancy. I will appreciate myself, remember everyday from now that I am a true warrior, a Queen. Something that everyone should remind themselves and others of everyday.
Keeping the faith alive. Trusting the process always. Believing in ones self. Staying true to me.
Embrace and flourish, we’re all beautiful.
