Cheers to 27

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Well….27 is here.

I’ve been dreading it…REALLY dreading it to be honest. It’s been giving me anxiety and I don't like it one bit. Why am I struggling so much this year? I’m a bit unsure, but I think it’s because I’m creeping HARD on 30 and there is no going back. Am I where I thought I would be at 27? Not at all. Far from it actually.

I was going into discussion with my friend the other day about turning 27 and honestly sometimes you need a voice of reason to slap you upside the head and make you be grateful for what is currently going on in your life.

“i think that's a normal reaction ... but i don't think you're abnormal. 30 isn't a death sentence in the least, and you're still far from it! i know that sounds easy for me to say, but trust me - it doesn't get less scary to get older if you are married, or if you live on your own! you are your own person, you have your own timeline, your own goals, your own life. don't let anyone else's dictate yours!!”

She went on saying “if i were you, i think i'd think about all of the positive life changes you've made in the last year, and how far you've come. that's a really good indication that there are only more good things to come - if you ask me!”

And she’s right. 27 is going to be a great year and the past 26 years have been nothing but amazing. I have a great family, amazing friends, a man I am completely in love with, I’ve had a successful career and it’s only growing by the day. Pretty damn good life (besides the whole living at home thing.)

With a fresh slate for 27…
- I’m hoping it is going to be my fittest year yet. 30+ down, lets keep it going!
- I’ll be embarking a challenging race schedule, including my SECOND marathon – the Philadelphia Marathon in November. I hope to see you out on the streets that day!
- I hope to continue growing in my career, relationships and life experiences.
- And most importantly, I am excited to live another year where my head is in the right mindset, my heart is filled with love and positive thoughts run throughout my body. It’s been an amazing feeling – I NEVER want to go back! 

Cheers to 27!
