25 Things To Do While I Am 25

When I turned 8 or 9, I remember waking up and opening my eyes to see the sun streaming in the blinds and saw balloons all over my room.  My parents were there with a birthday cake and candles (at least how I remember it). It was perfect and so exciting. 
Today, I woke up at 6 this morning and the sun was shining through the blinds. No balloons or birthday cake/candles but it still felt perfect. Today I am 25. I grabbed some coffee and sat down to enjoy some Me time.

I don’t have a lot of things on my To-Do list today. It looks a bit like this:

  • Curl Hair
  • Paint Nails
  • Do Makeup
  • Make Birthday Necklace/Bracelet
  • Drink Coffee
  • Eat Cake
  • Enjoy Today

I always thought people should have life figured out by 25. As I sit here, I realize how wrong I was! I have nothing figured out in the big scheme of things! I have accomplished many things, but everyday I continue to learn and grow. By no means have I figured out life.

I really like lists. I have a ton of them all over the place. So, in honour of my birthday, I am making a new list. What I Want to Do While I Am 25. I’m going to start the list and add to it as I think of more things.
