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.
