January 26. How is 26 a significant number in my life?

IMG_0753
As I sit and think…two years.

2 years ago, I started this blog. Well, okay, I started two blogs – Organilocafoodivore and The Classy Cunt Catalogue. Over the past two years, I turned them into one blog – RosieHearted – and have been trying to keep up with posts, but time flies, college becomes the past, and adult life is now the current. I just celebrated my 24th birthday, the day before moving across the country, and I have big hopes for two years – when I’m 26 years old.

I think about where I was two years ago – I was in a pretty unhealthy relationship with myself and my ex-boyfriend. I was staying up all night. I was drinking a lot. I was smoking a good amount of pot. I wasn’t eating that healthy. I wasn’t doing what was best for me. Over the past two years, I’ve really healed myself. I’ve gotten healthy. I practice yoga every day. I cook and eat whole foods. I meditate. I breathe. I sleep. And I sleep well. I love myself. But I still have high hopes for 26.

In two years from now, I hope that my business – ARM Business Solutions – will be functioning as a multi-member LLC. I hope that I develop strong relationships with designers, mathematicians, technicians, and data analysts. I hope that I continue to grow professionally, in my endeavors with food security, food justice, and food sustainability. I hope that I continue  to grow personally, through yoga, meditation, education, and self-acceptance.

In two years, when I’m 26, I hope that I’ve started a healthy, life long relationship with someone who mutually wants to share a life together. I hope that I own some property in Idaho and Michigan. I hope that I’m growing fresh veggies and have a chicken or two for eggs. I hope that I continue to explore the outdoors and successfully learn how to backcountry alpine ski and rock climb.

I sit here, writing, warming, and rejoicing in life.

I have a lot of hopes for 26. Two years goes quick. Veryquick. Keep your eyes on the prize and you’ll achieve anything you put your mind to, as long as you cherish that mind. Just a quick post – as I’m trying to keep with The Daily Post – http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/daily-prompt-numbers/ – and share my story (almost) every day. Here’s to you, me, and 26!

  1. Having good hope for future is everything. without it, living is tough and meaningless. i give you my positive thinking your way so that you may reach your goals in 2 years or more. Remember, the path to get there is as important as the goal itself.

  2. I love seeing how much you’ve grown in the time I’ve known you. As I’m sure you’re aware, I’ve had my own growth experiences over the last few years, and they continue coming at breakneck speed. Definitely looking forward to seeing you continue to grow and succeed over the next couple of years.

    1. Likewise my friend! I hope the present and future treat you well. I’m blessed to say that I went to WMU and met fantastic people, like yourself. I look forward to hearing about your future endeavors!

    1. Yes, I couldn’t agree more! I’ll quote a great movie, Kung Fu Panda, “yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why they call it the present.” 🙂
