Welp, here I am.. Twenty-Five. Or should I say twenty-fine? I’ve been glowing lately. If you would have asked me where I thought I'd be at the age of twenty-five. I probably would have said something like, engaged with the LOML, pregnant, and at the peak of my career. But that's just the Pisces in me, you know we’re known to be BIG dreamers. Instead of the life, I fantasized for myself at the age of twenty-five. My life is the complete opposite. In fact, I'm single, the mother of a 7-year-old cat, and I haven’t even touched the tip my highest potential in the working world. Due to all of that and society's "super standards" courtesy of Instagram, I often felt super behind in life. Similar to when I was in the 8th grade and all the other girls had boobs, meanwhile I was a late bloomer still stuffing tissue in my shirt. I know I'm pathetic but who hasn't done it?
I'm sure many of you reading this can relate. Not the boob story, but that empty feeling where you feel yourself drowning in your own disappointments, because your life didn't go as you expected it too. But don't be too hard on yourself and never apply pressure on things you cannot control. Life will run its course. It may not be at the spend you imagined it to be but as long as you focus on the end goal, all while living in the present. That life you have envisioned will come true. Try to remind yourself daily that everyone's timing is different. As sure as I will get my beautiful baby girl and the man of my dreams, you'll get whatever it is that you desire. The universe is working and you have a purpose. So let's toast to those twenty-somethings and let life roll.
