July 1st, 2021 | Birthdays

A few days ago it was my birthday. I turned 27. And as always, I took a few days off to reflect on my life.

It’s something I’ve been doing ever since I was a teenager. I remember being stressed and reflecting on my life when I was 14 or 15. Kinda sick, but it’s true.

“How was I this day last year?”
“How do I want to be this day next year?”

And depending on my growth, I would either feel good or bad. Specifically, if I didn’t cringe at my self from a year ago, I felt it was bad.

You have to cringe at your past self to know you are growing.

The younger you are, the easier it is to feel that exponential growth. But as the years go by, it becomes harder and harder.
