On St George’s Day, 23rd April 2018, I’ll be turning 24-years-old. Since my birthday is approaching, I wanted to take a look at my favourite things I’ve learnt and discovered during life as a 23-year-old. The last year has been of my best yet but also brought lots of challenges too. I think I look younger than my age, especially to a lot of people. But I like to think I’ve got the right level of maturity my age. That’s when I’m not in a fit of laughter finding something hilarious that no one else gets.
So, what has life as a 23-year-old gave me?
Finding the perfect job for me
On 15th May 2018, I began my role at Disabled Living as a Marketing Coordinator and Content Writer. I’m so pleased that my confidence has grew an incredible amount. No longer am I the girl who sits in the corner wondering where life is going to take her. I’m now the young woman who puts myself in the picture. I’ve met many people across my nearly to be 1 year journey. And I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it all. I’m looking forward to another year.
Experiencing a 10k run
A run with a few walks in between but I did it. I can’t believe it’s nearly been a year since me and Danny completed the Great Manchester Run. It was a lot of hard work training but an amazing feeling once we had done it. And as always, anything I can do to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, I’ll always try my best.
Mine and Danny’s 5th anniversary
The 16-year-old me saw a spark with Danny. We found our way back to each other in 2012 and finally got together in 2013. He’s everything I’ve ever dreamed for and has been the perfect person to share the journey I’ve embarked on over the last years. We’ve been there as we’ve both been chasing our dreams. He’s the most supportive and loving man in my life. Here’s to the next 5 years together. Let’s keep saving to get our home together!
When your birthday comes around this year, think about the best things you’ve done in the last year.
