Turning 28: A Decade of Adulting

I have been trying to write this post since August. Just when I was turning 28, but every time I would get into it, something would stop me. If you know me, I’m not about that half-assed stuff. I wasn’t feeling it.

After about a month I was back at it and I had some momentum going, then. Nothing. Just like before, I set it aside with the hopes of coming back to it. By the time I was in the mood-this moment right now- I couldn’t find the draft I had started on. Now here I am, with something so far off the initial idea.

I was going to tell you about the crap I have experienced in the last 10 years. The battles. But given the space I’m in mentally, I don’t have time for that. 😂😂😂
Time is an illusion.

But that’s not why though.

I think I have grown so much in the last four months than any other point in my life.

Going back and looking at all this experiences, good or bad, do nothing to change my present nor future. What I do, think and feel right this moment, is all that matters. That stuff made me who I am. It built me. Taught me. And I am grateful for all of it.

However, it’s time to move on.

Instead of concentrating my energy on events I cannot change, I thought looking forward is the best course.

After I turned 28, I started reading a lot more about spirituality. I haven’t been a religious person for a long while and you may notice, I don’t really talk about that kind of stuff here. I’ve become fascinated by the human brain and how it functions. Feelings and thoughts. Our bodies and a whole lot more.

I may have found the key to happiness. They don’t lie when they say it’s inside you. I have been enjoying myself and making every moment count. Because I have come to terms with the fact that the only moment that matters is this one right now. This one. Yes, as you read this post. That realization has changed my life.

I worry less. Enjoying things has been… I don’t even have a word for this. Like have you ever taken time to just look at a bird flying? Isn’t it just pure magic?

Food tastes better.

Water tastes better. And if you are no guest here you know how big this is for me.

Life is just better and I’m just being as much as I can.

28 has been amazing so far and I KNOW it will only get better. I will finally get that Wrangler, go off-roading like every weekend, create as much as I can, create opportunities, travel the world and on top of that list, stay happy and be present.

I will make this a short one and just send you love. Feel all the great things happening around you and don’t pay too much mind to those you don’t like. It’s a new year, you can choose to give yourself a clean slate.

Life is meant to be fun.
