Reflecting & goal setting

It's bold to say this but.. 2023 was probably one of the best years of my life. I always fear being 26. I thought..25 was the right age for me. It felt so fitting. I love saying I am 25 years old. Even when I was 24, I was excited to turn 25. It was weird, but it felt so right. Then 26 came.. I didn't know what to feel, what to expect, even what to look forward to. But all I know was that I wanted to make 2023 so fulfilling that whenever I look back, I don't want to regret a single thing. 

I wanted to be carefree but yet careful. Wanted to be free but intentional in every move. I wanted to be open to every opportunities, say YES to anything. Especially new experiences, breaking through my norm and comfort zone without compromising my safety, of course. And that was exactly what I did.

Truthfully, last year was incredibly refreshing. I fostered relationships with some of the best girls I've ever known. If anything were to happen (let's hope not!!), I will always look back on this time with fondness. It's true what people say - you have yet to meet everyone you will love. Who would have thought that at the big age of 25/26, I would be meeting people whom I now cannot imagine not having in my life?

I thought I was set at 23. I believed I had met enough people and experienced enough love. There was no way I would find best friends later in life. What a shallow mindset, contradicting what I always prayed for. I constantly prayed for love, and, true to my prayers, God kept blessing me abundantly with it through the best people—genuine, kind, caring, and supportive. I am truly blessed in this department.

As we enter 2024, my hope remains the same: to stay content with life. Whatever comes my way, be it good or bad, I want to approach it with gratitude. I will continue to pursue opportunities, say YES to anything, and challenge my comfort zone because change and growth only exist in the uncomfortable.

What's your goals? This may be 3 weeks too late but, Happy 2024!
