Turning 25!


I can’t quite believe I’m about to say what I am….I turned 25 today! 25! It hasn’t sunk in yet, and I’m refusing to believe its happened. I just can’t stop thinking back to when I was in school and literally had my life planned out. I had imagined I would be happily married, and pregnant at 25. I know life doesn’t go as planned, and it’s not as easy as that, but it just feels a bit surreal to me at the moment. None the less it’s something I couldn’t stop from happening, and something I just have to face. It’s not that I’m bothered about the number, because I believe you’re as young as you feel. Its more the thought of where I thought I would be, and where I actually am.

Everyones lives are different, and everyone takes different paths which lead to different outcomes. Im a firm believer of that, so I’m guessing my life now is the path I was supposed to take and the life I am supposed to live. When I think about it (which is what I do an awful lot) my life has taken some big unexpected turns, and this is probably more than likely responsible for where I am today. Yes there may be people who are my age who have more of a plan to where their life is going, but that doesn’t mean mine won’t all fit into place. My journey is obviously just taking a bit longer to reach its destination…I suppose is a way you could put it.

Being 25 I feel is a ‘proper’ adult age, but I don’t feel like a ‘proper’ adult…does that make sense? Anyone who has felt like this, will kind of get what I mean by proper. So I feel this is the year I need to get it all together and make some big changes in my life, or not changes, improvements. Do things I love, challenge myself, broaden my horizons, and most importantly live my life how I choose to live it…not how it’s ‘expected’ to go. I didn’t really have a plan for this post, as you can probably tell. I just wrote exactly what was in my head as soon as I thought it. 25 is a good age, and a good time to reflect on how life has gone, and how life is going. Happy 25th to anyone who turned 25 like me recently.

    Happy Birthday! I turn 25 this year, I definitely did not think I'd be married/kids etc. by this age hahaha so I guess it's not really hitting me as hard. Life doesn't go how you want it to but I think that's the good thing, it would suck if it was all mapped out in milestones and if it has scared you turning 25 hopefully it will spur you on to getting whatever it is you want. But honestly, embrace it, you're in your prime. you're 25 and have so much ahead of you so enjoy it girl 🙂 hope you had a fab birthday x
