Celebrate 28

by - 11:11 PM

Another chapter in my life begins as I grow another year older. 

The past year has been a whirlwind of life-changing events. I experienced heartbreaks, successes, failures, and I even came to a point of loss and confusion, wherein I had no idea what to do with my life. I did not even know what I want and I just felt stuck. I think we all experience that once in a while, however for me, the transition from 27 to 28 has been the most eventful, so far.

I reached a milestone in running by conquering and surviving my dream race, which I plan to do only once. I re-discovered a new (somewhat old) sport and fell in-love with it. I re-discovered a place I've been to before and fell madly and insanely in-love with it, that the thought of not being there crushes my heart. I've let go of a few people in my life and I feel at peace with my decision. I've welcomed new people and I'm looking forward to more fun moments with them. But perhaps, the most important highlight of the past year was when I want on a ten-day trip that helped me discover, not who I am, but what I want to get out of life. 

For now, I'm still stuck but at least I know what I want to do with my life and I have never been more certain. I'm slowly working my way to achieve it. I'm stuck but I am happy and thankful. 

I'm thankful to my family- albeit small- whose love for me is overwhelmingly big. I'm also thankful to my life constants (you know who you are), because you help keep me sane. Lastly, I'm thankful for the gift of life itself. Cheers to 28 and to the years to come! :)
