Do you evah feel like if you could describe yourself wif a Bri-ish accent that somehow, you would jus sound that much coolah? No? Anybody? Jus me, eh? Allllrigh-y then! Moving on!

People love talking about themselves until they are forced to answer the question of “well, tell me a little bit about yourself.” Suddenly, you’re boring. All of those funny stories that you like to tell about yourself seem inappropriate in this context and you don’t have a damn clue how to answer the question!

Well, hello! I’m Ana Helgeson. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

Let’s start with the obvious. I’m 4’11, feisty as hell and have a serious passion for living life to it’s fullest. Whatever that means. I have dreams, like we all do. However, my dreams have never been so real until recently.

They always tell you when you’re a kid that growing up is tough. Time flies by so fast that it’s literally terrifying. Don’t take anything for granted and believe in yourself.  Okay Dad! I hear you! Being an adult is tough as hell! All of these life lessons of getting hurt and proving yourself. Becoming successful and taking care of yourself. It’s enough to give anyone a god damn panic attack! But somehow, someway through pushing past the most challenging year of my life yet, I have found a NEW me. There is a fire in this girl and she is ready to scream it like Alicia Keys! “THIS girl is onnnn”…too much?

I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Where I will be in 6 months, or 6 years. What I do know is that I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that I don’t waste a single day not working towards tomorrow. Knowing tomorrow exists, today, is all I need. I have never needed so little and felt like I had so much to live for, until now.

Watch out. God is working some twists to this girls’ life in 2016 and I hope that you are here to celebrate with me every. step. of. the. way.
