Well here we are, hello 21. I’ve tried to write this post for weeks now, I’m just not quite sure what I’d like to say. I guess, happy birthday to me? I feel like this birthday would feel more daunting if I wasn’t at uni. Buut, I am and I still have time to figure some things out.
My 20th year didn’t get off to the best of starts, with probably one of the worst mental health periods I’ve ever experienced. Although come January, things picked up and I was feeling much better. I’ve done a lot in my 20th year on the planet, a lot to be proud of as well. I completed my second year of university, (despite worries about dropping out at the start), I’ve travelled and most importantly, I’ve pushed my boundaries.
I’ve proved to myself that I am capable, despite the struggles I face on a daily basis. I’d like to think my 16 year old self would be proud of where I am today and that at 21 I’m still blogging, I’m actually travelling and also receiving opportunities I could only have dreamed of. It’s easy to forget this, when in the midst of day to day tasks but when you sit back and reflect its pretty damn cool to see how far you’ve come.
So whats in store for my 21st year? Well, first things first, complete my bachelors degree and graduate (hopefully with a First or 2:1). Then I guess we’ll go from there. Hopefully start my career? I want to continue working on heading towards going freelance, which is definitely do-able but one step at a time, ay?!
This is a short and sweet post but I’m not sure what else to say. I guess I just want to keep progressing, keep managing my anxiety/mental health and have a good year. Here’s to 21!
