Imagedrinking good wine, with gusto

It feels like yesterday I was stepping out of my car to unpack for college at 18. LIke only a few months ago that I was facing a semester abroad in London at 19, scared and excited and in over my head. I turned 20, and then 21, 22 and 23. Now today, on my 24th birthday I can say that I am really proud of the person I have become over these last crucial years, as i’ve transitioned from late teen/young adult, and have finally rounded the symbolic corner and accepted adulthood. I have a full-time job and a steady income. I have a wonderful relationship with a guy I adore and a solid group of friends, whom I respect and admire and whom I chose. In my eyes, 24 is a turning point in that I can no longer say I “just graduated college”, the way I could when I was 23. I’m no longer stumbling around for work and hoarding quarters in a jar on my desk. I feel secure with myself and able to deal with tougher issues that I used to think I’d crumble under. I’ve got an understanding of what I want for my future and what’s even more…a plan of how to get there. Life’s short and I want to make the most of being 24. This may all sound sappy but birthdays demand reflection and this is mine. Thanks for listening xxx
