Motivation Mondays: Year 22

By the time I’m done writing this post, I will officially be 22 years young. My favorite parts of having a September birthday? The amazing weather and being younger than most of my friends.

I’d venture to say my 21st year was my best one yet. So topping it is going to be a challenge; a challenge I am up for. It certainly is off to a great start as I had the most perfect day. As I rode the bus into Manhattan, I reflected on my 21st year and all the things I learned. The beginning of my list includes:

  • Change is terrifying but ultimately a good thing. It makes you stronger and widens your perspective.
  • Family isn’t defined by blood. I woke up to 18 text messages this morning, all from my friends. They have become my family and I am impressed with their ability to consistently show up.
  • Your parents only have your best interest at heart. It doesn’t always seem like it, but they do. They also know you better than you know yourself.
  • Life is for the living. Yes, go to school, work hard and be honest. But don’t forget to create memories, to laugh, to watch your young siblings grow up and to experience every moment.
  • The best things in life aren’t things. No explanation needed.
  • It is the journey not the destination that is important. I have no clue where I’m headed but I’m going to enjoy getting there.

Cheers to year 22!
