Tomorrow is my birthday and it has me doing some serious self reflecting. I like to take time each year and think about what I have acholmpished over the past year of my life. This year the 10 year photo challenge is fresh in my head and it make me think what was my life like 10 years ago. 10 years ago I was just starting my Saturn Returns and was 28 years old. I was feeling like I was behind in life and trying to play catch up. When I think back on this time there was a 3 year blur between 25-28. Everything just runs together because I was so busy trying to make shit happen. In this podcast episode I decided to share advice I would give to my 25 and 28 year old self.
