Today is the beginning of a new era for me. My twenty-first birthday. A new year that plunges me head first into that exciting and liberating decade of life we call the twenties. While my birth certificate says I was born 21 years ago, I still cannot wrap my (soon-to-be-mimosa-fied) brain around it. Sometimes it feels like my 17th birthday was two days ago, and other times I feel like I am such a completely different person than who I was on that day. Considering how immensely you can change after just a few birthdays inspires me to keep aiming higher and higher. For my twenty-first birthday, my gift to myself will be a year of striving towards becoming the young woman I want to be. Oh, and a lot of wine. Cheers!
