Today is a good day. I am waking up and choosing to conquer today. I had breakfast with my mentor this morning which always puts me in the best mood. She is wise beyond her years and provides me little nuggets of wisdom that I carry with me through the hard times. Through her, I’ve learned to be strategic in everything I do, take steps back to reflect, and practice gratitude. There were a lot of things that made this last year life-changing, but the people I met were the best part. I feel as though I have a tribe of people out there rooting for me. From my laser hair aestheticians to my professors to my best friends to my parents, I am truly blessed.
Tomorrow I turn 21 years old and I am in utter disbelief. This was quite possibly the best year of my life. I matured so much in the past year and I finally feel competent enough to enter the workforce. I’ve become a completely different person and I’m honestly proud of myself. I spent hella years doubting my abilities and worth in this world. I grew up around mediocre people with bad values and average dreams. Ever since I distanced myself from the haters I feel like a noose has been taken off my neck. My friends inspire me, push me forward, and dare me to do things outside of my comfort zone. They listen to me complain often and help me through dark times. What did I do to get so lucky!!!
After grieving for months about the end of college I have finally hit the acceptance stage. While I am terrified to leave behind the life I love I’m excited to take on a new adventure. For that’s what life is, an adventure. There are so many beautiful places to see and exciting people to meet. This is only just the beginning.
