Birthdays…each year they come an go, and each year they feel different from the last. Usually the day of my birthday I don’t do a lot of thinking and just enjoy the moment with the people I love most. The day itself doesn’t feel like a new start, but more of a recognition that I’m still ticking. It’s the days that follow the buzz that get my mind spinning.
2012 (literally have of my 26th year) pretty much sucked big time with the exception of one huge life event…getting engaged. The year was TOUGH both professional and on a personal level. My day job was really starting to wear on me, our daily life was feeling pretty stale, and worst of all some close friends came and went. The second half of my 26th year was spent restarting…coming back to life…regaining my sanity. It’s been a lot of work, but all the transitions I’ve been able to make have been life-changing.
I have a feeling my 27th year is going to be all about “letting go”. Letting go of expectations. Letting go of control and certainty. Letting go of how things were and being perfectly ok with how things are shaping up. I’m finding out that letting go is the toughest and most rewarding thing you can do.
Did any of you have a quarter-life crisis in your mid-late 20’s? Any advice?
