The Twenty Seven Club
The blog section on my site has been collecting dust for some time, but what better way to wipe off the cobwebs than writing a post in light of my 27th birthday.
Twenty seven. Part of me still feels 20. Still making mistakes, jumping around in concert mosh pits, rocking Vans, and holding onto my cool for dear life. Part of me also feels 40. Tranquil, thinking about how I'd like to retire, reading books, taking care of my health, traveling, and reminiscing on my younger days.
Twenty seven. What will this year bring? If there's anything I've learned/still learning is that I am the creator of my own reality. I can either make the worst decisions and get rid of all fucks, which will probably lead to a not-so-great year, or I can continue to nourish my intuition + inner being, which, in turn, will blossom into the opportunities I've been waiting for. I think I'll go with the latter.
I like to think I get better with age. 26 was very good to me in terms of my career and personal growth. I finally got my career off the ground, found stability and steady growth, built fruitful relationships, had the opportunity to visit amazing places. I've accepted that everything is meant to happen at its own time and I have never felt more at peace. I started caring less about what people think about me and began living for myself. I fall more and more in love with myself each year, but this year was different because it took unpacking years of self-inflicted negativity and hurt from others to find this glow that I've been looking for for so long. This process has been quite liberating to be honest. I've learned not to let my past define my future. I value my sanity and peace more than ever and this is something I'll continue to live by.
I hope 27 brings me a step or two closer to my truth. I hope to continue building on the foundation I created with the right tools and the right people. I hope to nourish the relationships I have with my loved ones, more importantly the relationship I have with myself.
27, I am ready for you.
