26 years old feels old - and it feels like it came really quick. When you think about your life, there are defining moments that stick out. They aren’t necessarily monumental, but they’re times when you take a deep breath and you think about that moment, and you know that you’ll remember it forever, and that it’s a marking of where you were at that time.
On a birthday, I can’t help but reflect on a few of those, and I do feel satisfaction about where I am, and where I’ve been. But I also have never felt a greater hunger to improve as an individual, than I do right now. If there’s a segment of your life where you can get away with a lot of bs, I’ve more than maximized during that time. I think it’s time to take a big step forward - I want to be a better person, a better professional, more well-read, and the type of person that leads others in a positive way.
Maybe it’s wishful thinking… maybe it’s time to step up… here’s to another 26.
