On Turning 28

received_1166160853524326.jpegIt’s quite surreal being 28 right now. Ten years ago, I would have imagined myself to be stable, absolutely sure of what I want in life, doing what I love and ready to settle down. None of which is true today.

Somehow, it seems like I fell short of my own expectations but I won’t wallow myself in self-pity. I know better and I know that each one of us runs in our own time. I may have over-estimated myself when I was younger – believing that I could get my act together in that short span of time but growth is a continuous process. Now that I’m older, I know that things don’t always go as planned. I know that goals should not be set in stone, but should be fluid – adaptable to change.

Come to think of it, I have grown a lot. I have realized that friends should be grounded by quality not quantity. I have learned that family always comes first. I know that the amount of blessings we receive is based on the generosity of our hearts. I can attest that age does not equate to being right. Wisdom comes with the willingness to learn from your mistakes, young or old. Also, I know that there will always be something good in everyone but we also have our own demons to conquer. That is why spiritual growth is vital for everyone. I say all these not based on books or other people, but on first-hand experience; on what is true to me.

I’ll face today with a smile on my face because I know I’ve done what I can with what I was given. And will continue to do so regardless of how old or young I may be.
