I cannot believe the time has finally come. I am 21!!! Tuesday, November 5th, 2019, I turned 21 surrounded by amazing people. I have been waiting for this day since my 18th birthday, and let me tell you, it hasn’t disappointed. Since my birthday I have made my first wine purchase at Target and enjoyed my first happy hour at Slipstream in Logan Circle. I enjoyed a Vanilla Latte and a Twilight Nitro: a drink with tequila, hibiscus, and cold brew. I am now sitting in the airport getting ready to go home to renew my license. It will no longer say under 21! One thing is for sure: I’m loving this.
To commemorate this moment I was going to compile a list of 21 lessons I have learned, but instead I am going to share my goal for my 21st year. My one and only goal is to live without fear! As I reflect, I realize that fear has held me back and kept me stuck. As I enter my 21st year of life, I am promising myself to live fearlessly. I am cared for by God and supported by so many loving people (some pictured above). There is nothing that can hurt me.
I will be embracing senior year, job hunting, and graduation without an ounce of fear, because I am strong, but my village is STRONGER!
Let’s Get Grounded!
