In twenty-six years this is probably the happiest I’ve been. I used to care so much about what others thought of me. I wanted everyone to like me, I wanted to be the popular girl, I wanted everyone to think I was pretty, and I wanted everyone to want to be my friend, however as I have gotten older, I honestly could give shit less if you like me or if you don’t. EYE, know that I am THAT bitch and that’s all that matters. I’m happy, healthy, alive and following my dreams. Can’t wait to see what year 26 has in store for me. Below are three things I’ve learned in my 26 years of living:
- I’m okay with being single until someone that is my soulmate comes along. I haven’t been in a relationship in a long time and I haven’t been in a situationship (which is probably a VERY good thing) in a long time either. Some days, I want a man, especially when India.Arie The Truth comes on my playlist and other days, I’m just fine, but one thing I’ve learned is that nothing good comes from WANTING a man, as long as I’m patient and wait for the right one to come along, I’ll be fine.
- Life doesn’t always go as planned. When I was 18, I had my entire life planned out. I was going to go off to college and meet a wonderful man! When we both graduated from college at 22, we would get engaged and married by 23. I would have my first child by 25 and my second child on the way by 28. However, life did not go that way and I’m okay with going with the flow.
- Follow your dreams, no matter how big or how small they are! My big goals are to get back to Los Angeles in the field that I want to be in, Communications/Digital Media. I’m currently doing not one, not two, but THREE unpaid social media/newsletter internships to put on my resume and get the experience that I need to excel in my career.
