Today I am 25. I'm waking up this morning not feeling any different than the day before. I don't feel any wiser, I don't feel older, I don't feel ... old. These past few days I have spent a lot of time reflecting. When I was younger I thought a lot about where I would be at 25. I thought I would be long gone from those high school days. I thought I would be living in California, winning my first Oscar for best actress. I thought I would be married (check) and have a baby (not check). I thought I would have been a world traveler. I thought I would have made a significant impact in someway to someone. When you're younger you feel like you have to accomplish everything straight out of college. You feel this silent pressure to be accomplished now that everyone's first question to you is "And what do you do?". You think by the time you are 25 you will have it all figured out. Yes, today I am 25. I may not have everything figured out. I may not have an oscar, have a baby, be a world traveler. I may not have made my giant footprint on the world just yet. I may still be asking myself what I want to be when I grow up. And that's okay, because what I have learned these past 25 years is that right now is just the beginning. I'm not that old lady I thought I would be, I'm just getting started. So here's to all you other twenty-somethings out there. Own it, love it, embrace it, cherish it. And happy birthday to me!!
