Today I turn 24.
My birthday is my favourite time of the year. Not because of presents and flattering messages (though that’s admittedly lovely), but because I use it as an opportunity to reflect. This time last year I was an unsettled albeit bold 23 yr old about to embark on the journey of a lifetime overseas. Little did I know the lessons that trip would bring and the exponential growth it catalysed in myself.
I am still largely unsettled and restless. There is so much I want to do and see and experience. I see so much potential in life. To me it such a wonderful gift. I do not want to do it a disservice, and settle for mediocrity, or live ordinarily, when such potential for great things exists. And I can’t wait to tap into it.
Each year I find myself full of more gratitude for everything and everyone in my life than the year past. Which leads me to feel as though I am doing something right.
I can’t wait to continue creating and doing what I love. Thank you to everyone for your support and kindness. I have a great feeling about the year ahead.
