Two weeks ago, I turned 27 years old. I can’t believe it myself. It almost feels like I just graduated from college, or high school even. This birthday was nothing really special, unlike my younger years when birthdays meant parties, giveaways and cakes. I guess that’s really how things are as we age. It becomes less about ourselves and more about the people around us, people who are close to us.
This last year has been one hell of a roller coaster ride to say the least. Challenges kept creeping out career-wise which made me doubt myself and my abilities. Tossing around in bed wasn’t even sufficient enough, as my mind kept wondering how and why certain things had to happen to me. I suppose this happens to the best of people, when things don’t go as you had hoped or planned. Knowing myself, I am pretty much the type of person who gets disoriented once my plans don’t pan out the way I envisioned them to happen.
The worst part of having a lot of storm clouds over your head, is allowing them to dampen your spirit. So, with turning 27, I promise myself to let go of all the baggage that was keeping me down. I realize that I have a great support system of family and friends, and they are always there to pull me up and be on my side.
Being free of worries gives such a feeling of lightness. Acceptance of what might be is the key. So to 27, feel free to throw sticks and stones. I am older and wiser now, and I definitely won’t let you hurt me.
