26 at 26

1061071_569584149973_210172957_n For my 26th Birthday I decided to reflect on my 25th year of living and celebrate 26 things I’m proud to have done this past year. Also…. I thought it was easier than coming up with 26 things I’d like to do this year! As tends to be usual for me- plans are dreamt and then swifly dropped (for new plans of course!). Hence- I figured reflection was my best best…. Here are my 26 at 26!

I’ve had to make some hard decisions and embrace a lot of new changes in my life. I left a life behind I had been building for three years to only to embrace one I left seven years ago. I’ve focused a great deal on positive thinking and am eternally grateful for all the love of family and friends in my life.

Here’s to another amazing year!
