Ahhh! It’s here! I’m officially 25-years-old. I was laying in bed last night, thinking about how fast this last year has flown by. Didn’t I just turn 24?! At the same time, so many life-changing events have occurred since then. My boyfriend and I made our big move to San Francisco, I took the leap to pursue a dream that has occupied my mind for years, and as of this week I can officially say that I am the proud business owner of The City Blonde LLC. Yes, this year has flown by, but it has undoubtably been one of the most significant years of my life. I’ve learned to value the opinion I have of myself over the opinions of others. I’ve learned that life is too short to let the opinions of others affect how you lead your life, or keep you from living a life that you truly, whole-heartedly love. Even if it isn’t the so-called “norm.” I think what I’m trying to say is that I feel I came into my skin over the last year. I feel more me than I have ever felt. I feel alive. Motivated. Loved. I have a vision of what I want to accomplish, and a plan of how to get there. At 25, I am so proud of where I am today.
Cheers to the lessons, memories, triumphs, hardships, friendships and changes of 24. And Cheers to another year. I can’t wait to see what it has in store for me.
