AN ODE TO AGING & POWER WALKING

Aging.

What a thing. Some people are scared of it and some buy cars. I'm the Baddie Winkle type.

Now this may change later in life, but as it stands today, I love getting older. I'm more confident and I don't do things I really don't want to do. Super liberating.

Each year I like to check in with myself to see how things are going.

This year I died laughing because I realized I'm a power walker. This is the new me, the 28 year old version of myself and I'm owning it because self-acceptance is a very powerful thing.

All over the streets of San Francisco you'll find me power walking and listing to vulgar rap or 80s hits. I find this to be a ridiculous complement and laugh out loud when people pass by because THEY HAVE NO IDEA.

In addition to power walking, I've uncovered a few "passions". I'm hesitant to use the word "passion" because I hate it. I think it's a super important word that was lazily put together..

Anyway, I'm so passionate about food and health it makes my heart explode. I've also learned that I like creating things. I think I'm a creator.

This is all positive, but 27 certainly provided more than a few challenges like death, letting go and wandering into the unknown.

While each year I learn more about myself, it's also a reminder of the amazing people in my life. Thank you to those who believe in me and laugh at my jokes. Love you more than you know.

Cheers to 28.

XO,
