You guys I am 27! I say this with happiness in my soul and excitement in the air, welcoming this new chapter in life! Just like a child, I get very excited I kinda see it as a national holiday! Seriously,  if I could talk to the homies to do the necessary paperwork to make it official I would, but for now, I will keep this “holiday” with my family and friends.

I love the celebration! from the gold balloons to the bedazzling confetti, I can’t forget about the delicious cake. At 27 I have no idea what is my favorite type of cake is, maybe marble cheesecake..or maybe I need to dedicate an afternoon to cake testing… since I am in the wedding business I should ask my brides to invite me cake tasting.

Now, this may sound very self-obsessed and it isn’t.  I swear!  to me it is the perfect time to reflect on dreams becoming goals, life, and where I can better myself as a person to become someone I would be proud of.  This year more than ever I am working on the last part.

One of the many things I need to work on is expectations and acknowledging it takes time to get where I want to be.  A smart person once told me you have to take each a day a step at a time and not focus on the bigger picture because you will never accomplish anything nor will you create realistic goals.

The key is to focus on my path in life, push away all the comparisons because everyone’s life is shaped differently.  I know it is difficult to do with social media being an integral part of everyone’s life, but I need to accept God has a plan fitting for me.  I need to build the plan, but he will push me to the needed directions.  Culture norms is also a part of me I need to detach it’s a pressure to have a certain life at a certain age and become a certain cookie cutter women. For me finally I can accept at this point in my life, it is not fitting, I am not saying I don’t want it because I do but right now it’s no the right time.

As a result of these expectations last years I constantly felt like a was in a rat race with myself, in my mind I was in the right path, but consequently pushed away my happiness, my friends, and family. If you saw me boy was I a mess! literally, I had the Beyonce verse in my head “I woke up like this”

Now I am not saying, hey look at me I am a changed woman! Because I am still working on myself.  I can proudly say I am in a better place than I was back then.

If you ask me where do I see myself five years from now, I would have no slim idea! Five years ago I wouldn’t say  I be on this career path or doing what I am doing now.  Things change and people most definitely change if they didn’t then life would be oh so boring! Because I am certain that everyone goes through these thoughts I wanted to tell you this: it is okay to dream, but makes those dreams into a reality. It will not be easy, you will have to sacrifice a lot of time and dedication, but find the DRIVE to keep on pushing don’t stop believin’ and adapt to the crazy bump and shifts life has in store for you; never conform.

Now let’s have some cake with a side order of wanderlust!
