This time last year, I wrote about shaping my path. Since then, I swam Alcatraz and solidified my blog further. I traveled, rode go cars around the city, and got scuba certified.
But I also hit some bumps along the way. I ended a relationship that left me mentally and physically injured; I lost my job twice. I spent months feeling defeated, drained, incompetent, and vulnerable, and it was honestly very scary.
Through the support of my friends and family, I slowly picked myself up and renewed my commitment to hustling. I turned fear into volition, and with this birthday, I feel ready—albeit a little bit nervous—to continue moving forward.
This year, I want to kick the shit out of Option B. I want to push myself to stop saying “what if” and start saying “why not.” I want to swim laps around the haters; run this marathon on July 31; cook bamf desserts, explore new places, and be unapologetically me. It’s not always going to be easy, but I’ve never been one to make things easy for myself. And that’s okay. So Option B – baiiii 🙂

Happy birthday, Shikha. Continue to stay fabulous and keep marching on even if the roads are bumpy. You got it, girl.
Thank you!! Here’s to more food as well 😀
LOVE this. Sometimes all we can do is “kick the sh!t out of Option B” and it seems like you are doing that, 100%, with a smile on your face right now. Excited for year 27! Happy late birthday xo!
Yayaya love you girl! I always thrive off of your optimism, so feeling excited for the upcoming year 🙂
