Officially cut off from my parent's health insurance 🫶🏼 What a big birthday and at the same time, not really all that exciting at all.

As the sun sets on 25, a new chapter begins! I am so grateful for the 25 years behind me but honestly... 26 feels so old. It's like suddenly you're closer to 30 and something about that doesn't sit right with me.

Eight years since high school graduation. Four years out of college. When did all this time fly past me?

In the same breath, I am still so young. So many opportunities around me. All the unknown, the decisions to make, the people I haven't met yet, and the places I have yet to see.

Some days it gets easy to get stuck on the fact that so much time has passed and maybe I am not where "I thought I should be by now".

Like Drake said, "Every lost girl I know is over 26". Why did the man have to do that to us?! lol.

The uncertainty of this time is something I want to try and cherish. It's okay that I don't have it all figured out.

It's kind of exciting that I don't know what the future holds. While that gives me anxiety like crazy it's nice to remind myself of how equally exciting it can be.

So as I blow out the candles on my 26th birthday, I have gratitude for all I have accomplished, even failed at and I look forward to all that has yet to come.
