You know that cheesy new years quote “2015 was warm up, 2016 was practice, 2017 is game time” or whatever the quote is? That is kind of what it feels like turning 25, it feels like it is finally game time. And not like the get myself pumped up, read a bunch of motivational quotes and try to naively convince myself that I’ve done enough practice that I’m ready for the olympics when I’ve never even played on a legit team but it just feels good to pump myself up kind of feeling. More like I’ve put in a lot of practice, have a pretty good track record on the team and I just got voted captain and I’m feeling really good about taking on captain, because I know I have what it takes and it just seems like a very natural next step in my life. Disclaimer, I’ve never actually played a sport but I can imagine that this might be a similar feeling.
The point is, I feel like I’m finally figuring out this whole life thing and I’m realizing that I’m pretty damn good at it when I put in the effort. I set out to accomplish a handful of things in year 24 of my life, and I’m really excited to keep that plan moving along in year 25.
If you are reading this, if you have been following along since the launch of Life Off The Reel, if you just joined me, if you are just here to look at the pictures, if you sent me a happy birthday wish, if you didn’t send me a happy birthday wish – I want to say thank you, I really don’t have words to describe the amount of gratitude I have for the fact that you are reading these words. A big special thank you to all my friends and family who made me feel so special and loved on my 25th birthday, you are my world. I love you endlessly.
Cheers to 25!
