I turned 24 a few days ago and am still trying to wrap my head around that. I feel like the last couple of years have flown by, but for once I’m not struggling to keep up. True, things aren’t perfect, but they will never be. I’ve grown a lot over the past few years and am quite proud of my newly 24 year old self. It took me a while, but I finally caught on to the whole college thing. It took a change of major and some serious soul searching, but I’m finally living up to my potential and striving for more every single day. I no longer live in the hauntings of my past or in the lush unknowns of my future. I live my life day by day and set reasonable, achievable goals for myself. I guess I just know myself a lot better than I used to. The process of truly getting to know myself has been a rather enjoyable experience. I’m excited for what’s to come. Self acceptance has been one of the longest journeys I’ve embarked on, but I’m happy to say that it has arrived and is here to stay. Ahhhh, life!
