It was a hot afternoon in December and a 12year old me stood infront of my auntie doing a mind power point presentation of my life plan. “…So Auntie ” I continued “you see,by the time I’m 25 l will buy mom a car, finish construction work on the house and then I will get me a pilot husband any year after that!!”πŸ˜†πŸ˜Š. (I was a feisty kiddo, you best believe that!! Still am though!) . Little Sammy was a tough kiddo buddy!!

Well I’m about to be 25 and I’m super excited about it. I haven’t bought my mom a car(yet) or fulfilled most of the plans I laid down for my 25yr old self. Hell, I have never met a pilot talk less of “hooking”Β up with one but that is the beauty of childhood dreaming! You just feel in control and then boom!! Β  You grow up and then you realize life ain’t all about wishful thinking. You have to put in the work and be ready to get up after each fall on your road to success.

Silver is indeed a huge phase in one’s life. You might not have all you hoped for yet as a kid but you have to get it together before you’re 25. Priorities change, plans change , and hell yea! Friends change too when you’re trying to get it together. You better be on some kind of precise journey with a working plan and ready to work your ass off to get where you want to be in life before you’re 25 my friend! I know maybe your geographical location has a great role to play in this but if others made it under the same conditions why can’t you, Right? Don’t make excuses and let your background keep your back on the ground.

For girls being around my age may just mean more pressure from that annoying auntie to get you a husband or start making that your priority. Swear you won’t know what they all think about that till you’re 25 then the talk starts popping up at every family gathering πŸ™„πŸ™„. Don’t let that work you up! But know they have a point sha! Nonetheless, keep doing you let Mr.X meet you on that road to success you’ve carved out for yourself rather than sitting around waiting on him.

Β  Β They call 25 the danger zone because you’ve got five years before 30 and you better be married before 30 else….. Your own don finish!! (Swear our society needs to take a breather on this issue) Well at 25 you are a woman, old enough to handle huge responsibilities but all the same do it for the right reasons not to save face (whatever that means these days). As for the guys, Bruh get it together! Become a man! Dress better and waste less time girls or bottles. Grow into a man your society will respect!

This is it! 25 is it! Everything has led to this moment: the good,the bad, the ugly. All the experiences of teenage life and mistakes of immaturity are transformed to motivation when you’re 25. It’s Β time for you to retrace your path and then put out a plan and work for set goals. It’s OK to not be OK! Life could get messy and you may get lost. Read about a multi billionaire who was broke all through his twenties so don’t give up if you’re a lil lost! Just don’t give up else you will never know what would’ve been. You grow into the best version of you when you are 25 and there is no turning back as you get older.

Honey, raise a glass and have a blast on your 25th birthday.(I know I would) Β You’re only silver once, il fault en profiter! And besides you just became the boss of you ,so live it up! I know I would! Happy bday to all the 25s and about to be 25s! Shout out to all Gemini’s Though! We are a rare breed! Wink*😝

Love, Sammy😊😘
