My 20s has easily been my most challenging, most enlightening, most rewarding and the best decade so far. My 20s was a series of lessons that taught me not only about myself but about others.
Early on I felt I had to constantly prove myself and deal with the pressures of living up to everyone else's expectations. I was highly insecure and hated myself. It was only through coming out at 21 where I learned to love myself. Coming out taught me to stop apologizing for who I was and to stop worrying about what others thought of me.
My 20s, much like coming out was an experiment and learning through my mistakes. Each experience I had throughout this past decade, was vital and ended up being a building block to shaping my life and the person I am today.
If learning was the first word to describe my 20s, the second word I'd have to choose would be love. My 20s saw love lost, but I also found love.
Falling in love with myself was the beginning of my transformation, but I also found it in my unwavering friends and family members, and found it in one incredible man I have the pleasure of calling my husband. He sees me for me and loves me because of it and not in spite of it. I learned what it was like to surrender, to trust, to rely on someone else for support and guidance, to admit when I’m wrong - although I'm still working on this one - and how to just live!
Together, we fought to legalize same sex marriage in Bermuda and won! We helped dozens of other couples marry the person the love, we got married ourselves and even witnessed Bermuda's first pride parade!
Being 20 something is tough, not to mention stressful. Growing up is scary, but there is so much beauty in it. As I approach 30 in 3 days, I am more than ready to take what my twenties gave me and move on to bigger and better things. I have no regrets because I realize how my mistakes were relevant to my life's story.
As one chapter closes and another one opens, I am ready to make more mistakes, learn more life lessons, and love more. Cheers to 30! Now let's go Chicago! 📸 @meredithphoto
