write the rules (+ a giveaway).

"write the rules" graphic tee

growing up is a lot of trial + error. it’s about discovering who you are, and embracing who you’re not. as each year passes, you become more familiar with yourself. you capitalize on your strengths. and learn to overcome your weaknesses. you begin to change the world, because you finally know (or kind of know) what your purpose is. you’ve given up on the thought of a “master life plan”, but rather find comfort in knowing you’ll figure it out as you go.

today, I am turning twenty-eight years old.

I truly do not feel a day over twenty-one. but am so much happier than I was back then. as I’ve grown up, I do not feel wiser, necessarily. but more comfortable. I am who I am, and I love that I finally know who that is. I do not have all the answers, nor do I seek them. I’ll let life unfold how it will and embrace it as it comes ..
