This past weekend I turned 19, and I had a whole weekend celebration--I even forgot when exactly my birthday was! Since I am completely extroverted, I had a large dinner at Osaka Steakhouse with Hibachi, with as many people as possible. It was actually a lot of fun.
Then I took time to reflect on life and how far I've come. I do this because my New Year begins on my birthday--makes sense, right? Anyway, I was feeling extremely grateful to God and loved because I had so many people surrounding me and I was in a happy place.
But what does being nineteen really entail? Like one of my friends asked, "How is 19-year-old Temi doing?" People usually take this age for granted, but it's the last time you hear the prefix "-teen." Pretty scary, I know. You are forced to become an adult and try to make adult decisions, but still longing to be a teenager. I know it's only been a day, but being 19 reminds me of college. You're forced to grow up and make decisions on your own. You don't ALWAYS have to get them right. What's most important is that you learn from mistakes. It's the transition stage, and you actually grow up even without your knowing.
Thankful to God for another year,
