I AM GROWING. I AM LEARNING. I AM BLOSSOMING.
Often times I would look at friends, or family members and think: geesh I should really be moved out of my parents house by now, I should have a career, I should be starting a family, taking trips across the country, my business should be further, my book should be published, blah, blah, blah.
Guess what, I don't have it all figured out! I am not even who I am yet. I'll be the first to admit, don't let social media fool you. My shit is not together, I cry, I mess up, I have amazing days, and some days I sit in the middle of my floor wondering what the heck am I doing. And THAT'S OKAY!
I am right where I should be.
So no, I didn't get my drivers licence until I was 22 years old. I admit driving was a HUGE fear of mine. They say once you get in an accident you should get back behind the wheel, well I didn't quite listen to that advice and it took me some time. Heck it took me longer than others.
After college I moved back home with my parents, worked a minimum wage job, and traveled the world. So many people turned their noses up at me. Adreeahna, get a real job, move out, save your money, buy a car, blah blah blah. To others it was so frowned upon that all I wanted to do was travel the world, eat good food, and meet new people near and far. I was called irresponsible, immature, and even a bum.
But guess what, this is my journey! I will travel accordingly. No I don't plan to start a family any time soon. Yes I have a career, but whose to say tomorrow I might just change my profession and be a baker instead. I am learning my place in time, I am done rushing the process. I am who I am because of where I have been. My negatives do not out weigh my positives. I am learning, I am growing, I am becoming. I am Adreeahna, and I am taking shape.
