First off….. Happy Belated Thanksgiving to everyone! I really hope you enjoyed it!
This post will be short and sweet, so we can get back to enjoying the Holiday season 🙂
In exactly one week (*cough* December 2nd *cough*) I will be turning 26 years old. It’s so wild to me that I’m entering into my late twenties. I remember as a child envying adulthood and wishing to reach this stage in my life, and now that I’m here I wish I could go back and appreciate those growing pains (Sigh…..but I digress).
I am blessed and thankful to have made it to 26 because many have not, but there’s still a creeping fear in the back of my mind that I cant quite put my finger on.
Is it the fear of getting older?
Is it the fear of being stuck or stagnant in life?
Is it the fear of having to make serious life-altering decisions?
Is it the fear of not having everything together?
Most likely all of these fears creep into my head from time to time. Not knowing what’s next can be pretty jarring, but I guess there’s some beauty to that.
Now don’t get me wrong, lack of control drives me crazy lol……BUT there’s always a bigger part of me that enjoys the ride. Some of the best times in my life are when I release the tight grip and let God take control.
Will 26 be a life changing year for me? I don’t know.
But in the end it will be a chapter on the way to my destiny……A chapter that will continue to define and form me into who I’m meant to be.
