I am 25 years old tomorrow and although I don’t deem this a big birthday I think it’s important to cherish each birthday and celebrate it with the people around you. Life is way too short and we are reminded of that everyday.

I was trying to think of an inspirational list of everything I’ve learnt leading up to 25 but I have not got life sussed out, and I’m pretty sure I never will. Guess what ? I am more than OK with that because that mean’s I’m going to continue to grow and evolve as a person.

I have been reading other people’s list/blogs of different things they have learnt by 25 and there’s one particular post that stuck with me.

  1. Do your thing. (Even if no one else is doing what you’re doing) 

This is something I only started doing/became comfortable with late last year.  Late last year every decision I made seemed to upset someone, if not everyone. People had an opinion on how I should be living my life. People assumed I could not make the right decision for ME. People tried to tell me how I should live my life.  I finally realised that I didn’t give a f*** what anyone else thought and I am the happiest I have ever been.



2. Love your body 

I am sure every girl out there has had someone give their unwanted opinion on your size. I am sure we have all looked at Instagram models and punished ourselves in the mirror for not looking a certain way. We have all cried over going up a size, fat rolls and the number on the scale. I am not quite there yet but with the help of my boyfriend I am realising that my body is and always has been perfect. I don’t need to be skinny to be perfect. I just need to treat my body with respect, move my body, fuel it with goodness and love the vehicle I was born in. This year I’m going to learn to celebrate my body and not fault it for the amazing work it does.

Here’s to 2 5 with many more mistakes to make and lessons to learn.

For the first time in a very long time I am excited about my year and excited about my future. I think true happiness comes when you unchain yourself from the bars around you.



I'd love to hear from you!
