I am officially 26 and I feel good.
Doing this blog challenge has been just that, a challenge. Overall it was fun and I didn’t expect to learn as much as I did during this process.
August has been a busy month for me in general, so now that I’ve gotten through my birthday I’m starting to feel settled.
I’m getting excited about a trip I’m taking to Paris & London in a little over two weeks!!!! You guys will definitely see lots of pictures during & after the trip.
I wanted to take this time to give this series a proper ending and talk about some of the things I’ve learned from this challenge/my 25th year.
I can stand on my own two feet
25 was my first full year of living alone and while challenging I have learned how to be a better problem solver and how to support myself.
It’s okay to ask for help when you need it
I had never realized how much I struggled to ask for help before the past 6-9 months. Before even 3 months ago I got anxious when I had to ask people for things, even when I knew they would say yes without hesitation. Now, I’m able to ask for help quickly and easily, because I understand that we are here to help one another.
Doing something everyday is hard
Whether it’s fitness, meditation, eating healthy, or this challenge I have found with all my routines it is hard to do something every single day. My job is somewhat unstructured so my day to day often looks different. It makes it hard sometimes to stay grounded with routines when your work hours change daily. The biggest thing with this one for me is to be gentle with myself and go with the flow. I’m actively practicing not allowing a failed routine ruin the rest of my day.
There are many other things I’ve learned over this past year, but I don’t want to go on forever.
Thank you all for following along in this journey! I have lots of ideas for more content that’ll be coming soon. In the meantime, if you all have questions or things you’d like to see from me, feel free to leave a comment!
