Whenever another birthday rolls around I tend to reflect on past birthdays and experiences. 10 years ago I was 18… excited for college, scared of what would come my way. I look back on how I used to be and I can’t help but smile. I miss that time in my life. But 10 years later here I am and I’ve never been so happy. I’ve done things that I never thought possible and despite my self doubt and self consciousness… I’m proud of myself. I’m loving the person I’m growing into and I think that’s how it should be.
