Well in true JessBay style I always seem to do a homage to whomever birthday is approaching. Well, luck for you it's MY birthday tomorrow. A birthday that I have been dreading for quite some time...25. I know, I know, that is not that old, I am still young blah, blah blah. I just feel weird about it for some reason.
If you would have told me at 18 that at 25 I would be starting my 2nd "big girl job" after having one of the worst years of my life, that I would be living in Northwest Ohio with my boyfriend, and just feeling like my life is a blender on high power I would have looked at you like you were crazy! At 25 I was supposed to be married with maybe one child by now, damn those life plans me and my friends made.
I guess in the end all that matters is that I am happy, which I am. I have a wonderful boyfriend who has stuck by me when I know anyone else would have picked up and left, I have a huge, crazy, exhausting family that I love more than anything and friends that I would be lost without. Although I have always wanted to leave Ohio and live somewhere warm, there is always vacation.
Life just doesn't always go the way you planned. Mine sure hasn't, but I think I like this unplanned chaotic life instead. We don't know what we are doing, where we are going, or where we will be in the next few years, but that's ok!
So my plan for tomorrow is to embrace this new "stage" of my life. Spend more time with my family, make more of an effort to connect with my friends (near and far) and just live my life the best way I can.
So here's to another really crazy, really unpredictable, really fun 25 (let's hope more) years!
Have a great weekend!
