Birthday Bash

A couple weeks ago I celebrated my 25th birthday. Now while I’m not super excited that my twenty’s are passing by quicker than I ever could have ever imagined, I am thrilled to be feeling more confident in myself than I have ever been before. Turning twenty-five in a way made me feel better about myself. A few weeks before my birthday I had the worst break down I’ve ever experienced. For as long as I can remember I have suffered from anxiety and depression and but recently I was diagnosed with OCD. For some a diagnosis verifying that they are aren’t ‘normal’ could be horrifying but for me it was a relief. It was telling me that I have an answer to how I’ve been feeling, that I wasn’t crazy, and that everything was going to be okay which gave me all the confidence in the world to be myself. After that, I started to realize that the majority of people have some kind of mental illness. Either they keep it to themselves or they aren’t even aware – and it got me thinking Β “what is normal?” To me, normal doesn’t exist. We are all just getting through life whichever way makes us happy and following our dreams. My dreams are simple. I want to be happy. Now, obviousllyyyyyyy theres other things in this world I want.. but everyone seems to get caught up in their ‘dreams’ and forgets to make happiness one of them and its important that happiness be my #1

I am happy to say that recently I have been fulfilling that dream with the help of an amazing fiance, a great job and the best friends anyone could ask for. These are extraordinary people and without them I could not stand.

Now onto some less serious topics and more fun! I celebrated my birthday the best way I know how, with amazing friends, old school 90’s and 2000’s hip-hop (all the Ja Rule my heart needed) and some unreal outfits!
