To fête or not to fête

My birthday is less than a week away and to be honest I am not totally thrilled about turning 25. I bought a pretty neutral dress to celebrate because I’m feeling a little meh about the whole thing. Is this where I am supposed to be at 25? I thought I was going to be running the world by now or something! Beyonce told me so.. Okay, okay, I may be exaggerating just a tad bit but way back when I was 20 and thought “where do I see myself 5 years from now” I am not quite sure if this is the quarter century year old Natasha I would have described. But then again maybe my “life plan” was too cliche and unrealistic…

On a positive & much lighter note, I do have to admit that I am proud of myself and all that I have accomplished in my early 20’s. I up and moved to the big bad city of NY after graduating, I can financially support myself, I’ve made new friends & learned that it’s not possible to keep all old friendships, I’ve had my heart broken, I’ve fallen in love, I’ve forgiven, I’ve come to the realization that it’s okay to be selfish, and most importantly I am more confident now than I’ve ever been before.

I will officially be in my mid-20s in just a few days and I need to hold my head up high and embrace this new adventure. I need to be okay with not having everything figured out and just try to relax. It won’t matter how I end up celebrating this big birthday because as long as I am surrounded by my family and closest friends, I know it will be great. Here’s to turning 25 and to celebrating another year of growing, learning, embracing, and just relaxing.
