Last year I shared Top 10: Life Lessons Learned by my Mid-20’s and that is still one of my most popular post. Now a year later looking 27 dead in the eye I feel like this is a year of gratitude.
(for all you GOT fans)
Every year of life we face new challenges and rewards some years are better than others but they are all filled with blessings and lessons.
This last year has been full of ups and downs, highs and lows but through it all I never doubted my purpose. My husband and I are approaching one year married and adulthood is something that is finally less taunting.
We’re a little team taking on this world and trying to make our mark.
I look forward to growing old. I am excited for the wisdom 30 year old me will have, the experiences 45 year old me will have, the attitude 70 year old me will have… there is so much living to do.
Most of all I have learned Gratitude!
All of the personal battles over the last year, I somehow had an internal voice always telling me… “well, that is life. Just believe me it will get better.” Faith and love were my best friends and I felt calm through dire situations and when I lost my cool my husband found his.
Taking a trip to Paris summarize this year for me. I saw refugees, beggars, scammers, and more. I also saw people open their wallets to help.
I saw hope and laughter in a place that has been hit by anger and hate through terrorism.
I saw life in the moment.
I am grateful for the experiences I have received in life, all of you that support me by just liking a photo, reading my ramblings and being nice to your fellow citizen.
At 27 I have learned how to be grateful and I will continue to learn.
