A round peg.
Today is my 25th birthday. While I have to admit, I’ve been depressed thinking about hitting that dreaded quarter-century mark, today I am simply happy. My 24th year was marked by unexpected changes. Tons of doors closed during the year, but even more opened, allowing me to run down a new, beautiful path. My heart is filled with joy as I reflect on all the wonderful things that have come my way during the past year.
I’ve realized within the past year, that I will always be a round peg. I’ll never fit into that square hole, but why should I want to? Life is much more fulfilling in standing apart from the crowd rather than blurring into the grey background. This year, I am embracing my round-peg-status. 24 was amazing, but I have a feeling that the best is yet to come… and I can’t wait to enjoy the ride.
