As my birthday approaches in the next hour I’m reflecting over this past year. Twenty-five was really good to me. I am a caterpillar in a cocoon. I will soon be a beautiful butterfly, but I’m not in any rush. I don’t know how long my metamorphosis will take, but I am going to continue to enjoy this journey of becoming this beautiful butterfly. I can’t wait to see all of the beautiful vibrant colors and show them off to the world. Until I break out of my cocoon, I will not allow anyone to disturb my cocooning stage. Even in nature, if you disturb the process of the caterpillar in the cocoon, you risk botching the transformation. I’ve grown a lot and learned so many things about myself. I learned how to let go of things that no longer serve me or aids in my growth. I learned how to get out of complacency and choose the things that are best for me. I allowed myself to live life freely without hesitating. I found my inner peace and learned how to center myself in that peace. I am continuously enjoying my own company while learning and understanding things about myself that I never know.
Twenty-five was a beautiful year for me. A year that I will always remember. If twenty-six tops twenty-five I am ready for the ride. Thank you twenty-five for all the lessons and all the memories. I thank God for allowing me to have such a blessed year and allowing me to reach twenty-six.
Happy New Year to me! Alright, twenty-six… let’s get it poppin’!
