I'm a huge fan of Grey's Anatomy and each episode, Meredith Grey gives some wonderful life lessons.

Season 11, ep 18:

Picture the life you dreamed of living, the person you pictured being with. Picture the job you dreamed you’d have. Are you living the life you envisioned for yourself? Are you who you wanted to be when you grew up?How’s the view? Do you like what you see? Think back again to when you were little. Are you living the life you pictured for yourself? Or are you still dreaming of something bigger? 

I remember watching this episode in April and not being entirely sure what the answer was.  In October 2015, the answer is hell yes. I didn't get to this point without a few road bumps though. But, I am finally living the life I pictured for myself while dreaming for something bigger cos why not.

Thinking back to when I was little, I wanted to be Ally McBeal. A successful lawyer with an office overlooking a huge city. I wanted to travel and have many friends. Years later, law is definitely not an option. But I still want that huge office though lol.

This is the life I want. I'm 24 years old, I have an amazing job essentially directing a well known non-profit and doing so with a supportive board and co-workers. I started my own non-profit too. I have amazing friends and family and I'm doing all the things I love and more! I am happy, healthy, and loved. I feel like I am successfully adult-ing haha.

As the year comes to an end, I am really grateful for all that has gone down in 2015. I got to travel quite a bit and I'm counting down to this:
