feelin' 22!

 



As I sit down and begin to type away at my parents rarely used formal dining table, I can’t help but wonder, “Am I putting on the insufferable persona of Carrie Bradshaw today as I lay out my goals for this next year of my life?”

*queue the Sex and the City theme.*


Since my 22nd birthday was two days ago, it’s obviously time that I share my intentions for this next season of my life.  My birthday always seems like a restart and a mini “New Years” for myself in a sense of wanting a change for the better. I’m beginning to think that I really only make resolutions on my birthday, rather than New Years because you know ~iM nOt a rEgUlaR gIrL, iM a CoOl gIrL.~


Jokes aside, I wanna be really transparent with you all and express myself in the most authentic way so that maybe I can provide some guidance, comfort, and even humor along the way. It wouldn’t be fair to you, or to me if I wasn’t being my authentic self, I don’t mess with that.


Over the past few months, I’ve been in the biggest pit mentally.  Blogging wasn’t fun for me and to be honest, with all that was going on, it was kinda hard to be myself, the fabulous fun loving girl that I am.  On social media it’s easy for things to appear differently as they seem and that was the case. It was best that I refrained from posting or sharing to much as I usually do and cut myself some slack in order to process things, and I’m happy to say that I’m back on my B.S! Haha


With that all behind me, I have the clarity to reflect upon what I want this next year of my life to be like. How I want to feel. How I want to act. How I want to treat others. How I want to be treated.


I celebrated my birthday at the glamorous Dunes Restaurant at the Auberge Beach Residences & Spa.  After a wonderful night out, I jotted down some bullet points for my 22nd year.  So, if you are still reading and are interested here is the list I comprised! Drumroll please….


-Be nicer to myself

-Listen to what God wants for me

-Be still and present

-Get back into journaling everyday, even if it’s one sentence or a whole paragraph

-Less is more

-Be more inquisitive with the world around me

-Save more & Start investing… hello I’m becoming a big girl now lol

-Don’t let others who don’t care about you ruin you!

-Learn a new skill, pick up a new hobby

-Do good and be good to others. Kindness goes a long way.
