Ade Speaks: Twenty Lovin'

........ I'm twenty! 

Adios to the teen years and hello to the twenties.I'd be lying if I said that I hadn't been anticipating this day. Prior to its arrival, I'd find myself varying between fearful and ecstatic. On one hand, I was  thrilled. A step closer to adulthood, 1 year before the bomb 21. However, at the same time the impending arrival of adulthood was scaring me senseless. It still is. 

To be completely honest, I've always been a Daddy's girl and a Momma's baby. 20 meant having to come to terms with the responsibilities I would soon call my own. The child in me didn't want to accept it. However now, on the day of, I've decided to stop playing and step into my maturity. I'm twenty, not twenteen as my sister and I had previously agreed on. 

I'm so thankful for everything God has done in my life, and ever more thankful for being able to see another year on Earth.

I want twenty to be tantalizing. I know that life isn't perfect and more than likely I will experience bumps in the road....... but we don't have Triple A for nothing. In a way, this blog's title stems from my invitation to twenty. 365 days of embracing a new age, of embracing new experiences. I'm ready and I intend on taking twenty by a storm. Terrible Twenties who?
