Yesterday was my twenty seventh birthday. For me, birthdays have always been a time of reflection. About the days behind and the years ahead, where I'm at and where I'd like to be. My twenties have been a consistent time of change. Sometimes sought after and sometimes unwelcome.
This past year has brought up a lot of fears I hadn't been aware of before. Fear of loss and the uncertain future, fear of change and the what ifs. We recently watched the Season 5 Finale of Grey's Anatomy and the closing monologue (of all places!) was surprisingly relevant and comforting to my current reflections.
As I begin another year of life, I hope to let the worrying of what may come fall away and instead lean into the scary and wild unknown. Because really, what other choice do I have?
