It's my 25th birthday today.

This year, for some reason, I've been reflecting not on the last 25 years necessary, but on the number itself.

25 seems like a very respectable age. I've often been told I am mature beyond my age, but I don't know, maybe I've finally caught up with myself.

I remember when I first got married, many of my newlywed peers that I respected and admired were 25. People I wanted to be like. Grounded. Sure of themselves. Driven.

I know I have grown a lot in this area over the past few years. As a 20-year-old, I felt inadequate in many ways. I would tell myself, "I'm so young, that's why I can't get this right." "I'm too young to understand." "I don't have enough experience."

I caught myself internally giving this excuse the other day. And I thought, no, that's not going to work anymore.

I am responsible for this person I have created. We are pushing full steam ahead, no looking back. May my weaknesses be ready to buckle at the knees, for I have decided I'm ready to be who I was always meant to be.
