Here's to turning 29!

It's my birthday!!

It's so crazy to think that today, October 12, 2020 I turned 29 years old. They weren't kidding when they say that time flies as you get older. I usually come on here every year for my birthday and talk about 29 things that I learned or 29 things that I'm grateful for but this year I wanted to pick one lesson I truly learned from age 28 to now 29.

"It doesn't matter how much you plan, things will always change"

The last year has been a year of change; so many things have happened personally and worldwide. I'm a planner when it comes to my life but I'm very aware that no matter the amount of planning, it's all in God's timing and things are out of our control. Change taught me a lot about the people around and how change affects them and with me being an empath, how that affected me physically and emotionally. Change showed me how I took on a lot of emotions that weren't my own and how I needed to take a step back to get back to who I was as a person and put my mental health as priority. Change showed me that a virus can shake the entire world and shut everything down. Change shifted all of the plans I saw myself doing with moving in to the city and making due with the things that were open. Change reaffirmed how I always try to see the positive in everything and strive to make people see some good in every situation even when it seems like it's all bad. Change showed me that I can still have close relationships even when moving farther away and that distance is only mileage. Change showed me I could be the bigger person in a lot situations and not let things that people who didn't even know me said affect me. 

Change was huge for me this past year and I've tried to embrace every curveball thrown my way. I'm so thankful for all of the people in my life who made year 28 amazing. I can only imagine how year 29 will go and what memories I'll make along the way. Thank you to everyone for all the happy birthday texts, phone calls, DMs and comments; I appreciate all of you so much!
