27 Things I Know To Be True On My 27th Birthday: A Letter To My Younger Self.

23. Do not let anyone intimidate you. You might be intimidating, ever think of that?! Everyone is insecure and nervous from time to time and it is crazy how much we can get in our own head. People are just people. Do not let differing personalities make you feel less. You don’t need to be loud, harsh or Type A to make an impact. This will take a while to learn as well.

24. Most of the things you worry about never happen. Worrying and overthinking is only praying for something to go wrong.   

25. Follow your heart. Because we learn about trusting our gut only after we haven’t. And we are only able to learn about love after digging through the trenches of heartbreak.

26. There is no short cut to growing up. I needed to learn every last thing on my own, and in my own time. Because it has been how I have learned each thing that has shaped the person I now am–and the person I’ll be tomorrow and the day after, and the year after next. And I’m very happy with that person.

27. Learn to laugh at yourself. Let people laugh at you. Pronounce things wrong. Trip over your own feet. Spill coffee all over yourself. Accept it, people will love you more for it.

 Here’s to 27. I think it’s going to be a good one.

​ Eternal optimist. Believer in welcoming each day with too much coffee and toasting it goodbye with a glass of red wine filled a little bit too high. ___________________________ ​ After doing as they all say by following my own heart, I spent a solid portion of my college years naively in search of something, that in the end, would only bring me back to where it all started... ​ Sweet Home Chicagooooo! ​ For the past 8 years, I have found myself in the trenches of adventures and mistakes, experiencing the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I have finally learned to not only accept, but love the process...No one really knows what they're doing. I have never been less certain about my future, and yet, there are the little moments day in and day out, that remind me it.will.be.okay. This blog is a chronicle of my decision to live with intention and heart - an attempt to document these amazing, important, in-between moments that account this bittersweet time of becoming.
