When I turned 25, I was still new in my career, working side gig after side gig because it was fun and dating my now husband, Robert. The biggest thing we were planning at this point was probably what we were going to throw on the St. Patrick's Day float asking for used bags of beads from whoever would give them to us.
At 15, my biggest fear was not having a date to the Homecoming dance. Don't worry, I went stag before it was cool. I was completely insecure in who I was and navigating my way through my freshman year of high school with my big sister in California and having not yet had my first kiss, HA.
When I turned 5, I have no idea what I was thinking or doing. One thing I know to be true - my grandfather was taking care of me at home and I loved him a whole lot. One of my favorite places to be was on his left lap.
Recently I had a light bulb moment that I just can't get out of my head.
If I can't be fully 5, I can't be 15, I can't be 25, I can't be 35.
Today I am all of those ages. I am a little girl who loves her family. I am a teenager who still gets scared of change. I am a young professional who still loves to date (and celebrate St. Patrick's Day).
I am a woman who isn't afraid to be my corny, overbearing, overly sensitive, caring, involved and over-achieving self. It's who I am and I'm ok with that.
