7 Truths We all Should Accept: Reflections on turning 27

Today marks my 27th journey around the sun! To celebrate, I thought it would be fitting to share 7 truths I’ve come to accept in the days, months and years leading up to this point in my life. Because my birthday is in August, this is always a month filled with reflection. I think it’s important to take inventory of your life every so often; reflect on the things you like and dislike, meditate on the things you have learned, and reflect on the person you are in the present moment.


1.     You control your own narrative. Create a life you're proud to live and take charge of your story.

2.     You are not for everybody and that is okay. You will be too much for some people and not enough for others.

3.     You can be in a good mental state and still experience feelings that don’t make you feel good. That’s called being human

4.     The way people treat you is a reflection of their character, not yours. If they treat you well, embrace it. If they don’t treat you well, don’t take it personal or internalize their actions.

5.     Slow progress is still progress. Celebrate it.

6.     Discipline is the vehicle that allows you to accomplish goals.

7.   Growing apart from people you love is part of life. Honor the relationship for the goodness it brought you and the lessons it taught you. You can live in peace, love and respect someone from a distance.
