Cheers to 28

cheers to 28 all in

My 28th birthday was this past weekend, and I had an absolute b-l-a-s-t ringing it in. My friend Nathan and I share birthdays just one day apart, so we combined parties for one mega celebration with our friends.

I mentioned last week that I felt a little rushed going into this new year, without much time to reflect going into it the week prior. But the one thing that I absolutely knew is the word (well, words) that I wanted to represent 28: all in.

I want this year to be a year where the things that I say yes to I mean yes to with my entire heart; where they’re a ‘hell yes’ or a ‘no.’ Where I fully invest and embrace, rather than being half in. Where I am p-r-e-s-e-n-t. Less time with technology and more time with the people in the room next to me. Where I show up for each moment, instead of my mind scurrying in a million different directions. Where I really value and deepen the good things in my life.

27 was an incredible ride. It contained moving downtown, making so many new friends, traveling, developing my blog, and really saying yes. To every invite and offer and opportunity. If I feel a little flustered going into 28, it’s because almost every single day and night this year was full of friendship and outings and fun, and a year really, fully lived.

I can’t wait for 28. Cheers to the gift of another year. I’m all in…
