Twenty Five


Tomorrow I turn 25.

I like to reflect on my life when it’s my birthday. It’s the perfect time to see how my life has changed in one year and it also gives me a chance to express my gratitude for the amazing things in my life.

When I wrote my last birthday post, I was just about to start my journey to becoming a teacher. It’s 365 days later and I am now coming to the end of my training, I will be qualified in just two short months. I have secured my first teaching job, a permanent position in year five and I am over the moon about it. Just as I predicted, it wasn’t easy but I can say for certain that training to be a teacher was the best decision of my life.

This year I have learned to find balance in every part of my life. I have learned to accept and let go of certain feelings and thoughts that were holding me back. I still have a long way to to before I am free from my anxiety but as time passes by, I am conquering it with confidence and learning different ways to reduce stress and manage my emotions.

The thought of the next year scares me a little but I am excited for the changes that I know are going to come and the little moments in life that will surprise me. I am ready for me and the people I love the most to move forward, to succeed, to love and to live a happy and fulfilling life. I am ready for the challenges that await me in the next 365 days, and I hope to share some happy memories and new life lessons with you all in my birthday post next year.

  1. Happy birthday! I wish you the best as you continue your venture. I know it takes a lot of courage and strength to move forward and to work toward a dream. Your accomplishment is inspiring. Congratulations on the job! I have waited to continue my education so I can continue teaching ESL because I also struggle with anxiety and other things. You remind me it is possible and that good things can come. Also, being a couple years older, I can relate to that whole quarter life crisis you may or may not have experienced or are experiencing now. I hope things continue to get better for you and that you keep maintaining your health. It all takes a lot of effort, but it’s worth it.
