You see the title and may wonder what exactly is Tysheira talking about? Well… IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! I am truly thankful to see this day because I know God is not through with me yet. My birthday is the start of my new year and I am overwhelmed with joy that I get to do some amazing things and spend more time with people I love. For now, let’s get into this “20 & Some Change.”
This title is significant for many reasons. I turn 25 today, have about 2 strong strings of gray hair, and I am about to undergo some amazing and tough times. I am not a big birthday person, but I do like to take time on this day to reflect on the year before and what I am looking forward to. I look at what I’ve accomplished and the array of others that are waiting for me. You know there are no secrets here at Leave Inspired, and after each post, you are likely to what… let me hear it… LEAVE INSPIRED!
Turning 25 means that I am right in the center of the world of all things “20s.” I am thinking about the heights of my career, friendships that could last a lifetime, and building my life with a significant other. All exciting, yet some fear is attached to all three. The end of 24 up to now I have gotten serious about my health -both physically and mentally. I have been in therapy for 2 years now to date and I have truly seen the growth from 22 to now. There were moments I didn’t think I would survive or ever heal from the brokenness. I started experiencing a lot of anxiety attacks at 24 and to combat that, I got aggressive about my physical health. I got a membership to LA Fitness to take advantage of the cycling classes. I knew I needed to engage my physical health with something fun that would have me coming back for more – cycling has been a game changer for me thus far.
Thinking of 25, I started to look at how I wanted to present myself. I am in the process of getting rid of old clothing articles and going after styles that I’ve always desired. I didn’t want to have the “Girl Next Door” look anymore. Now I am going for chic, sexy, and business styles. We tend to look like what we go through, as much as we tell ourselves that we don’t. I did not look extremely bad in the least, but I felt depression in my sleeves, and anxiety in my jeans. I want to feel more light, sexy, and classy all in one. I hope that you continue to stay connected with me during the moments of my new year. A new level of Ty is arriving and I cannot wait for you all to see and read about it. I did not want to make this an extremely long post, but I do want to give you a glimpse of what I am looking forward to at 25.
P.S. Don’t forget to wish me a Happy Birthday in the comments!
