The year of 21 was suppose to be magical. I would be legal all over the world, not that I’m a big drinker or anything but still. Being 21 would mean all the puzzle pieces would fall together. Today the year of 21 ends and I was right the pieces did fall together but in a completely different way than expected. It took me 21 years to figure out what I really want in life. It took me 21 years to finally know what my heart beats for. This makes me sad and happy at the same time. Sad for all the obvious reasons and happy because my eyes have finally opened. I can finally tell what will and will not make me happy. I’m telling you, it is a wonderful feeling. Don’t understand me wrong, I still have troubles listening to my heart but I now realize sooner why I’m not as happy as I could be.
I did in fact learn 21 things this year, not going to bore you with them all but I will tell you the two most significant ones. The first is:
Listen to your heart and gut.
They really do know what you want and what will make you happy. The second one is:
It is perfectly okay to go for your own happiness without compromising.
It is however never okay to say yes while your heart screams NO! You need to have a yes from your heart in order to be fully happy.
In my year of 22 the above mentioned lessons are the two I will try and do my very best to apply daily. I invite you to join me?!
I’m still learning but I definitely am further than May 30th 2015, which makes me happier than anyone could ever imagine.
Happy Birthday to me!
