Twenty-six

I’m in my last few weeks of being 26. That feels weird. I feel weirdly old, yet still so young. Is that how most people feel? My friend sent me this article yesterday, which rings so true.

If you had asked me a year ago what my life would look like now, I can with 100% certainty tell you it wouldn’t have looked like this.

While I never would have guessed that my life would be what it is today I can say with complete honesty that I am so very happy. I am thankful for all of the amazing experiences I have had and for the love that I feel in my life. I’ve learned so much in the past year that I can hardly even say I’m the same person. Three days before my 26th birthday I broke up with someone I had dated for 18 months. I am basically a serial monogamist and didn’t quite know what to do with myself for a couple of months. Then I decided it was time to strengthen my friendships and relationships. What a whirlwind it has been with that! I have met some of the most incredible people. I cannot even begin to tell you how good it feels to be surrounded by people that love you and appreciate you for who you are.

Now that I’m nearing 27 I am starting to think about those 30 before 30 lists that are everywhere. I’m pretty sure it’s time that I write my own. I have so many things I want to do and maybe it will help keep me on track. I am actually getting excited about entering my late 20s. (27 is late twenties, right?)

Holy cow. If 27 is late twenties, that’s crazy. When did this happen?? Writing that out makes it feel so much bigger. Like, a bigger responsibility, yet also more room for big experiences!

Here’s to making the most of 26 for the next 3 weeks!
