thoughts on twenty seven

Looking back on the last year honestly makes me a tad weepy. I wrote this post on my last birthday and woah. What began as a year without goals turned into way more than I could have hoped for.  I can't begin to comprehend the beauty and blessings that have been poured over my life since those words were written.

Dreams came true and prayers answered. New and dear friendships have been made. Countless celebrations of life and love have taken place. So much to be thankful for.

Twenty-Seven has brought...
a better understanding of the freedom that comes with being myself and being vulnerable.
a joy that wells up inside when I pour my heart and soul into the people and things I'm passionate about.
an overwhelming calm that happens when I release my tight grip and allow life to just be.
a greater sense of His sweet peace and assurance when I'm still figuring out how to balance it all.
an understanding that when I get out of my own way, He has room to work. And it's more beautiful and fulfilling than anything I could ever imagine for myself.

It has been quite a year. A year of growth, of learning, of being stretched and molded. A year of blood, sweat, and definitely some tears. It's been a year I will always hold dear.

Thank you to everyone who sent me a birthday wish! My heart is overflowing from your loving words and support. ♡
