Birthday No. 24

Today is my 24th birthday. As it was just put to me a few minutes ago, I’m one year away from joining the quarter century club. Thanks for the reminder, E. I approached my birthday this year with slight resistance. I’m getting older and feeling the pressures if adult life more and more every day. I didn’t even want to celebrate. But with some persuading from friends and family, I woke up this morning in a better, happier place.
Although we think that by a certain age, you’re supposed to have everything sorted and in place, it’s okay if you don’t have all the answers. It’s 2014 and life’s possibilities ate constantly expanding. So tell that feeling of “I have to have a career, house, husband and 3.5 children by the age of 29” to beat it. I may not be all the way there by 29 but at 24, I’m certainly not where I used to be. And for that I am grateful.
So I’ll raise a glass to 24 tonight and smile knowing that my future may not be the very clearest but it still shines brightly.
