What I know about myself after 26 Years

Twenty-six was my Golden Year

(last year I turned 26 on the 26th…hence: Golden Year)

and it has been a blessing.


With the ups and downs and the anxieties that I still battle on a regular basis, I must say, “GOD IS GOOD,” and overall this year has been too.

I realize how blessed I am to have made another circle around the sun!


This 2016 journey has made the one year anniversary for my blog, my marriage, and another year for me on this Earth. I am such a sucker for anniversaries and comparing things based on the passing of time. I like to measure how far things have come.

As the time has passed in my life, I can honestly say that I am proud of this twenty-seven year old woman that I am becoming. I am proud of how far I have come. I have taken some leaps outside of my comfort zone a few times in my life (especially this year) that have boosted my confidence in a major way.

At this point in life, I have this unusual expectancy that I have never really felt before.

I guess it is because I am becoming the kind of woman that I look up to.

I am moving into this really cool space where I feel I have no limits. I do not know whether to be excited or scared about that (okay, I am kind of scared) but, whatever.



I am ready either way. This year has taught me to stop limiting myself, watering me down, and trying to dim my light for the sake of other’s comfort.

I realize that I can not fulfill the purpose that God has set out for me if I am constantly worried about what other people will think about me. This year, I have lived more freely than I ever have before. It has felt so good.

This is my last post of 2016, y’all.
I hope you all have enjoyed following me on this journey. I know I’ve enjoyed sharing with you. There is more to come…let’s see what twenty-seven has to offer. I’m giving this year a theme as well (Golden Year went so good, why not?!).

Twenty-Seven is my year of EXPECTANCY.

I’m expecting some of my deepest desires to come my way, I’m expecting to push through the difficulties, and I’m expecting to meet again this time next year with a full heart.
