An ode to turning 25. The night before I turned 25, a rush of birthday wisdom surged my heart and mind. The result is the 25 most meaningful lessons I've learned in the 25 years of my life.
Although it was a bit scary to reduce my life to only 25 lessons (piercing down at my Google Doc had be thinking, "Can my life really be summed up in 3500 words?) I am so glad I surpassed that fear. The result for me was empowering -- I have experienced and learned quite a lot, and for that I am grateful.
