So you turned 25.
We get it. I get it. You’re half way to 30. You haven’t accomplished what you wanted by now. You’re not married. The list goes on and on. But do me a huge favor, take a deep breath. You know what you are doing? Living, learning and loving.
Everyday that I can remember. You were stressing about things you shouldnt. What people think, what your exes are thinking, why didn’t this happen the way you wanted it to. Instead of stressing about the things you can’t control, which you do have a habit of doing. FYI, work on that please. It is not cute and it will burn you in so many different ways. Don’t think so? 2016, has been that year for you. Anyway, instead try to find a way to control yourself. Meaning your feelings and actions. If you say you are going to do something. Do it. If you want to be sad, do it.
Also, 25, you’re still young. God still so young. There is so much more out there to learn. You thought 2016 was a rough year, wait till you have in store of the rest of your life. But again, you can control it. It’s your life. I’m here to tell you, you are doing fine. You’re just a normal 20 something. Sure you can be a princess. Sure you can be dramatic but that makes you, you. You are also a kind person. A hard worker. A person with drive.
You are moving to New York here in November. That is close. So very close. Live today day to day. Have fun with your friends. Drink all the alcohol you want, well maybe. Make random trips to see your friends. Be kind to people. Be you. You surround yourself with great people. What more can you ask for?
You are living the life that you have been wanting. One day it will be perfect and the next it won’t be. It’s okay. That will happen. Keep on discovering yourself. Find hobbies you enjoy, talk to people who enlighten you, have fun in your free time.
I don’t want this letter to sound harsh or to put yourself down. I want this letter to lift that brick off your shoulder. It’s fine love. It’s your birthday. It’s your life.
Happy 25th Birthday!
