Having Your Cake And Eating It Too

Having Your Cake And Eating It Too

Cake. Cake. Cake.

It’s officially my birthday (and my least favorite day of the year) and I can’t believe another year around the sun has gone by so quickly!

There’s a lot of reflecting when it comes to my birthday, and I’ve got to admit, I’ve been super emotional this time around. Okay fine, I’m always in my feelings but this year everything truly has been bittersweet. 

25, for me, is what I will call my warm-up year. It was a period of major growth and change. I found my happiness after feeling lost for a little while and I grew into myself. I learned to make myself a priority, I learned the meaning of balance and patience, and I learned how to let go of the things that I simply cannot control. 

There were, of course, tons of ups and downs. That’s life, and for lack of a better term, shit happens. But quite possibly the most heart warming thing for me to see was how every single time I was down, I wasn’t alone in getting myself up. My family and my friends are the real MVPs of my life. 

While chapter 25 is officially donezo, I’m SO freaking excited for 26. It’s game time. 

I’m currently overdosed on cake and while I’ve been in this cakecoma for the past like 4 days, it’s gotten me to realize that this year, I will have my cake and eat it too. 

And that it’s totally okay for me to do so.

So no apologies for being selfish when appropriate, making it a priority to laugh until it hurts, and spending time with only those that serve me and add magic to my life. 

26, I’m ready for you!

Thank you for all of the sweet birthday wishes. I’m truly filled with so much gratitude.
