Earlier this month, I celebrated my 22nd birthday and with turning another year older comes the inevitable reflection on where I've been, where I'm at, and where I'm going. 22 is a weird age. It almost feels like my real transition into adulthood with my undergrad life ending soon and my hunt for a big girl job beginning. I don't like getting older and I feel like every year, I've never been satisfied with where I was at in life. Mostly because I am super hard on myself and always feel like I can do better. (Partly because turning another year older gives me less time to make it on to the Forbes' 30 under 30 list). But finally, after 22 years, I'm feeling pretty alright. With where I've been, I've seen so much and experienced so much within the past year alone that I don't even have the right to complain. With where I'm at, I'm about to reach a milestone and receive my bachelor's degree in business. It's so crazy for me to even say that because I've been waiting for this moment for so long. With where I'm going, I want to say I have this renewed outlook on life. I used to be so hung up about where I'll end up and so worried that I wouldn't find the success I crave but I've come to realize that it's really all up to me. In the words of William Ernest Henley, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. There's a reason those words are written down my spine.

But with all the school/work stuff aside and keeping in mind what really matters, I am so genuinely happy with the relationships I have with my loved ones. Really getting into adulthood now, it feels amazing to only be cultivating the relationships that actually matter to me. I feel so whole. And that's all I ever really want to feel for the rest of my life. Completely whole. So cheers to another year of fulfilling my wanderlust, chasing my passions, and always doing what makes my soul feel whole!

P.S. Big love to my wonderful friends for throwing me a surprise picnic with all my favorite things at one of my favorite views of home. Love you guys times infinity!
