25 Things I’ve Achieved In 25 Years

Do you believe in the magic inside you?
The magic that surrounds you?
A reflection of beauty, holding all the answers within
Things change, rearrange and so do I
A small percentage is who I’m building with
Ambition is priceless it’s something that’s in your veins
A wink from the sky as a falling star passes by
Raise your glasses, I made it to twenty-five.

It’s time for celebration, I’m feeling 25. I took a flight to mark the occasion, casually wandered around Budapest in October. The wanderlust bug had bitten me, crossing off one city at a time. Before moving forward, it’s good to look back and reflect. It helps us understand what we’ve achieved and what’s next. Here are twenty-five things I’ve achieved in twenty-five years.

Just because you’ve slowed down, doesn’t mean you’ve stopped. It can be hectic trying to balance it all, especially as a new mother with new responsibilities. My only advice to share is, take your shot, you create your own opportunities. Stop overthinking, doubting yourself and ignore the insecurities. It doesn’t have to be perfect, we’re all learning and progressing. With this in mind, a few things I wish to achieve in the next five years include

  • Collaborating with high street fashion brands
  • Being featured in a podcast
  • Collaborating with fashion YouTubers
  • Attending fashion weeks across the world
  • Create a limited-edition photography magazine
  • Publish a poetry book
  • Write for a well-known fashion publication
  • Buy a house or an apartment
  • Travel to 5 countries I haven’t visited before

I have big dreams that I know are possible to achieve. However, I can be my own worst critic. I need to let go of perfection, it stops me from hitting the publish button on many occasions. What advice would you give yourself at 25?

    I’ve ticked off a few of the same things, but lots of room for more!
