Today I turned 25.

I spent an hour at one of my favourite spots in Cape Town, reflecting on the last year and the year to come.

I’ve set myself a goal, and that is to write a blog post every day for the next year. Even if it’s just a few words.

It’s not really a commitment to writing. It’s a commitment to reflection, to spend a little time every day unpacking my thoughts and going through my learning.

The title of this blog post is from an @jstlbby instagram video, and it is one of the most epic and hilarious motivational videos I’ve ever seen. It’s linked below.

This is the first post of many, my #365of25. I’m excited for the year to come.
