Cheers to 24 Years!


I really love birthdays!  Growing up, I always chose to have a party with my friends instead of asking for specific gifts.  I've always felt like birthdays are more about celebrating your life with the people you love and less about material things.  (But I still make a wish list, just in case ;) )


  A fun little throwback to my Sweet 16!


23 was really the year that I felt like I "came into my own."  I have battled anxiety my entire life, but I really pushed myself to do things that made me uncomfortable - whether it be chopping off a foot of my hair, choreographing a dance for some of the most influential people in the city where I live, moving out on my own, taking more time off before law school, or becoming more personal in my blog posts.  I have become less concerned with what people think of me, and I've also learned to be nicer to myself.

The thought that has kept popping into my mind in 2015 is "I wonder what my younger self would think of me."  And you know what?  I'm pretty sure she would high five me.  I have a wonderful boyfriend, a job that I love so much, and goals that I am dead set on achieving.  And most importantly, I have become resilient in my short 24 years.

Thanks for sharing this journey with me, and thanks for dropping by to celebrate with me today!  I hope that everyone had a great weekend and has a lovely Tuesday.

XX,

SS
