Moving further into my latter 20s and I wonder if I’m getting to old to announce my age like this. But honestly – it’s just a number right? Twenty seven onto twenty eight is not so bad, and spending it in the Bahamas is even better!
So let’s break down year twenty seven. LEHGO!
My mindset going into twenty seven was – DAMN! I better get more accomplished this year compared to year twenty six. I mentioned in my post last year I struggled with feeling challenged and accomplished the beginning of 26. But luckily pulled it together in the second half. And wanted this to be a productive year! Well as they say, be careful what you wish for. I started the year dealing with two huge emotional hurdles one after the other. (Just want to add here that I hope you all know that social media is only a highlight reel of my life. And I like to take this time every year to open up to whoever cares to read, more about my personal life.)
That being said, Kevin and I went through the biggest obstacle in our relationship the first couple months of being twenty seven. And then just when I thought I had picked myself up from it, I was betrayed, and lost a friendship with someone I loved like a sister. Not gonna lie, the first six months of year twenty seven was difficult and full of tears.
What I learned…
But as corny as it is, it’s true what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. And I could definitely say that these two struggles only helped me to grow emotionally and mentally. With Kevin, we fought through it and came out stronger than before. With a deeper understanding of one another and a resolve that led to us getting engaged! Woot woot! And with my broken friendship, it helped me realize that it’s okay to let go of people. And to forgive in a way I never thought I was capable of. (Also as a bonus I ended up working out a lot for my mental health, and was the most fit I’ve ever been in my life I think lolol.)
I think as most people get older we are more likely to experience heartbreak and betrayal. And if we’re brave enough – to have experienced it more than once. What do I mean by brave enough? It takes courage to open up to someone again after being hurt the first time, and even more the second time and so forth. People you love the most have the ability to hurt you the most. And it’s easy to close yourself off to that. But I truly learned this year that it’s better to have love and lost, than to have never loved at all.
Year Twenty Seven 2HQ3
WHEWPH! Lots of stuff the first half of twenty seven and as June rolled in things looked up! I was on track for a promotion at work, and Kevin and I were doing great! And at that point I just wanted to chiiillll, get that promotion at work and learn fun skills for the blog. But then we got engaged (post here) – and since then it’s been a whirlwind of planning and changes for the upcoming year. This post is getting long so I’ll end it here for now but I have a big life update to share with you all so stay tuned! 🤗
As always, if you’ve made it this far thanks for reading and being here. ❤️ It means the world.
