I AM 25

I am having to continually remind myself of this fact more and more often as of late. It helps me to stay put, live right now, just for the peace of being here, right now.

My accomplishments are admirable. My stamp on the world, my tiny universe, is indelible. I am proud of my work. It is significant, rewarding, sultry, and delicious. Yet, I struggle. If I was paid in pride, I would be a very rich girl. Unfortunately, pride does not pay the bills.

All of my life I have just wanted to be older, wiser, THERE. Just to have all of it done and out of the way. My impatience with life diminishes my gratitude for everything that exists in this moment. Like Varuca Salt screams "I WANT IT NOW!!!", I'm just not ready for my golden egg.

Emotionally, financially, demographically, I am still a baby.

I just wish I didn't feel so old.
