Today is my birthday. My 20th birthday. The birthday where I leave my teen years behind. And you know what, I’m stoked! Ecstatic, even. Because I’m ready to move on!
Being the teenager that grew up too fast was fun. I loved it. It taught me so much and it’ll always be a part of me. But I’m done with relying on that. I use that as my definition of success time and time again and it’s time to let it go and find a new definition.
It’s time to go out and live. To be happy. Feel happy.
I’m ready to make new goals, reach for new dreams, and find my real & true success.
I’ve made the decision that I AM going back to school as soon as it’s possible.
I’ve made the decision that I WILL be moving out of my childhood home.
I’ve made the decision that I’m going to be more independent. More focused. More of simply being me.
I’m twenty now, it’s about time I made a change. Start living MY life. For ME.
My family will always be there to support me, I learned that.
My family proved it with this:
Even my siblings pitched in their $10.00 and my heart simply melted.
That’s the thing about this all, my family will always be here. Always. And even when I’m not around all the time, their love for me will stand. The same way my love for them will never disappear.
So, I’m ready.
I’m ready to jump from the nest and start my life.
I’m twenty now, a big girl.
