So today I turn 24 and I have had so many thoughts racing through my head. I let myself take some time yesterday to really sit down and reflect upon this past year, the good, the bad, and everything in between.
I want to be real and honest and transparent with you guys, whom I value so much as readers of this blog and your words of support and kindness never go unnoticed.
I wanted to share that I suffer from pretty debilitating anxiety.
It’s uncomfortable to talk about but I really hope to de-stigmatize anxiety because SO many people suffer from it and it does not make you a weak person in any way shape or form.
A huge realization that I came to yesterday was that for far too long I have let anxiety control how I view certain situations and I let it dictate how I approached life.
I let it creep into relationships, my career, and even traveling or driving a car.
Not anymore. I will do another post if you guys want about how exactly I got my anxiety under control and reclaimed my life but I want to focus on what I want to manifest in my 24th year on this planet.
Sitting here today I feel more in control of my life than I ever have before. I have regained my sense of self and feel SO incredibly hopeful about the future.

I am so grateful for this past year and while it has brought about so many changes in my life, I like to look at the positive and realize I am exactly where I need to be.
Graduating college, working on this blog, beginning an entirely new career that is so much better than I ever could have imagined, 23 it’s been real!
I am so ready for the next stage of my life and I can’t wait to bring you all along for the ride!
Cheers to 24!
