In just a few hours I will be 26. The thought of that actually gives me anxiety.

It’s a running joke in my family that I am old af. I actually just like to make fun of myself to make myself feel better. That has to be some kind of disease.. right? But, really… I have probably called my mom everyday this week and said “Hey, it’s me.. your 70-year-old child”. But, she laughs at it so I keep doing it.. that’s probably a disease too. UGH! (completely joking BTW) 

It’s not that I have a problem with getting older.. I just… have a problem with it. LOL. I don’t feel old or anything. I think it is just because life goes sooo quick. I know you shouldn’t worry about that, but didn’t I just graduate highschool? Didn’t I just start driving? Like how did I get here?

So in attempt to get over the im-getting-older-blues here are just a few things I am reflecting on that have gotten me to where I am today. Because, really there is so much knowledge and wisdom that comes with getting older. You just need to stop, reflect and realize it. As someone who also needs to be reminded.. a lot.. this is for you!

perseverance.

this is the number one thing that came with getting older. Omg I sound like an adult.. I’m not that old! Anyway, no matter how hard this blogging life is I won’t let myself give up. You shouldn’t either!

 dedication.

much like perseverance, I realize now how much dedication I have.  Growing up when things got hard I just gave up. I didn’t care if I didn’t want to do it anymore I just gave up on it. It wasn’t until I started blogging 2 years ago that I realized how dedicated I was. I constantly remind myself, if you want something bad enough you will make it happen.

family.

family is such a big part of my life. & no, I don’t need turning 26 to help me realize that. However, the older I’ve gotten the closer I’ve also become to my family and I love it. I’m also beyond lucky that they are so supportive of what I want in life.
