My Golden Year


Today I turned 25! It’s crazy to believe how fast time has flown by. Just a year ago I traveled to New York City from Louisiana to bring in my 24th birthday with three of my best friends. That same day I was accepted into LIM College and made my official decision to move to NYC to follow my dreams.

At that point, I made the choice to not play it safe or be complacent so I quit my job and moved. Moving was a drastic change outside my comfort zone and let’s not forget I was JOBLESS! But it was then that I had the chance to discover strengths I never knew I had.

I’m not only celebrating my birthday today but also my journey. Society has forced us to believe that ages correlate with life milestones; not true! There is no time frame for your journey. So what if you’re not married before 27 or own a home before your 30. Take a minute to realize your journey is about living the life you want. Luckily, I had my minute of realization at 24. I decided then that it wasn’t about being rich, it was about starting a journey that would provide me with a life I wanted…And for me, the only way to start that journey was to take a leap of faith.

Cheers to 25 years!
