Reflecting on 24
Another year has passed, and tomorrow I turn 25! It’s crazy to think about, especially because my 23rd birthday just felt like yesterday. Looking back at my post from last year- although some things stay constant and flow with time- A LOT has shifted and moved all around me and within me this year. To start, I’m in a whole new state and will be celebrating with my boyfriend and his family this year! I’m back in my hometown (6 years later) - makes me giggle since it feels like some sort of heroine’s journey) and this is the part where I’m back to the beginning with a renewed attitude- only to begin another heroic journey of epic proportions😂. After all, I’m in the cusp and in the middle of huge changes unfolding in my life. My biggest, most daring and exciting move is on the horizon yet! I’ve let go of some people along the way- and I’ve also deepened my relationships with others. I’ve learned that release is inevitable and that it is in fact, even essential to your growth! I learned a lot about what I desire and don’t in life. I learned a lot more about what I deserve to have in my life as well as what I don’t. I have continued to put myself first- more and more. I have continued to shift and put my energy into things, places and people, that nurture and uplift me. They love me as I love them. And although I am far from my family and my friends, I feel more surrounded by their love than ever.💖
From where I stand here now, I stand concreted and supported by the knowing that the people who stand in my life beside and with me now, have been there for me through it all- through thick and thin- through good times and hard times- through the light and especially through the dark- and for that I am eternally grateful. Reflecting on last year and this year, what I am especially grateful for is that I get to live this life surrounded by and with so many beautiful people along the way. I am so thankful that the people in my life share the same love for growth, connection, understanding, and time with Mother Earth. I am so thankful that their paths before them, seem inherently and ever tangled and connected to mine. I am so lucky to have created so many memories and can’t wait to continue making even more. At 24- and almost 25, feeling this way, I feel incredibly blessed, and somehow, someway, I know, it can and will continue to get better than this. Somehow, and someway, year by year, life surprises me more and more, and I fall in love in more ways than one.
So with that, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of my 24th year- celebrating it for all it has shown me- writing about some lessons learned, my favorite memories, key milestones of this year- as well as wishes for the year 25 🦋
Main Lessons Learned🌈
Career: Stopped teaching, started an Only Fans😋
Worked at a cute small sister owned boutique, then worked my first serving job in Scottsdale, Arizona
REA Crystals gaining traction and making way more sales than ever before 💎
Elysian on Earth is growing- people have started commenting on my blog and I’m starting to see the ripple effects of my musings, writings and thoughts and that makes me so happy. If you’re reading this- know I appreciate you and love you!
Creativity: Made my first candle and resin art with my sister.
Painted Virgo, Leo and Taurus! (She’s almost done- aiming to complete her by the end of this season so about 9 more days)- I can’t wait to unveil her and show you guys more and more of my art in the years to come! Gemini season is next- who’s excited? (Cause I am beyond excited to challenge myself and paint TWINS!)
Created and planned shoots like no other- a literal dream come true, I have always loved photography and art. I think capturing the feminine form is so intimately beautiful and I can’t wait to continue to do more!
Began wire wrapping crystals and pendants again (see my Etsy store for pendants charged in the New Moon in Taurus + Solar Ecplise) and for that extra love love 💕😉
I am no longer afraid to show or be my self, I no longer feel limited or judged by my job/career and that feels so amazing. I feel free to be me and am getting better at shifting my perspectives and negative thought patterns/cycles as they come! For that I am so thankful, and so so sooo proud. Although this is something I am still working on, I am so proud of myself and all of my growth. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been beyond worth it to be authentic and unafraid.
I am getting way better at setting boundaries, communicating when it’s hard, letting go when I need, focusing on what I can control and loving myself harder! This made some people who were not meant to stay fall away, but for the people meant to continue on- I felt cheered on as they welcomed, loved and embraced this more true side of myself as I learned to support myself and my own growth more and more.
Really nurtured and deepened my relationship with my soul sister Drea- I am so thankful for her presence in my life each and every day. Her and Lindsi are my lovers for life 🥲 I wouldn’t be who I am without them, nor would this world be what it is without them.
Started working out more- this is in huge part inspired by both Drea and Lindsi too. Shoutout to them for being the fit, sexy goddesses they are and lighting the way for all others- just by doing their thang! 🌿
My parents moved to Arizona (as did my older sister and little brother)! I spent as much time with them as I could before moving- and although bittersweet in moving- I know that when I visit them, they’ll all be together (and considering my family is usually all over the place- this is HUGE!) I look forward to the next time I visit since we’ll be able to explore all my favorite spots as well as all the spots I still want to visit all together too!
After 6 years in Arizona- I moved back to Wisconsin (temporarily) and finally ended my long distance relationship (of 5 years) by moving in with him ;) We’re looking at roadtripping again here soon to buy our land and begin building our forever home and I cannot wait!🌈
I’ve gotten more into epigenetics and how our lives can often mirror our ancestors! PS Part of this is for me to read back on through the years- since I feel like a lot of times in previous years- I couldn’t tell you one year from the next- the next 25 years and on I want to make different and meaningful. I also love the idea that if one day when my children and children’s children are curious or are at the age I am now, that they feel connected to me, loved by me, and supported by me. After all, a lot of times are lives unknowingly mirror our families- and I think there is a lot to be learned from the ones who have lived before us and their experiences at that age! I for one already asked my mom what she was learning, doing, her likes and dislikes at 25- and will do the same with my dad. (I cannot wait to connect, giggle and laugh) at this united aging experience of becoming and being 25
Although I (my ego self and mind) struggles at times with transitions, expanding past my comfort zones, change, release, and control, looking through all of this, I know I am going the right way. I know that humans have always gone through and have thrived through so much and that I too can do the same! With my life as the canvas - I cannot wait to see where this path of love and heart continues to take me!
Wishes For 25
