In a touching Instagram post, Woods shares how much she has grown as a person over the months and is looking forward to where life will take her.

Woods is not letting the past few months define who she is

Jordyn Woods is another year old and a whole lot wiser.

The former Life of Kylie star didn’t have the easiest year by far, but after experiencing a ton of ups and downs over the course of a few months, Woods is now reflecting on how they have made her appreciate life’s challenges.

On September 23, Woods took to Instagram to mark her 22nd birthday with a candid Instagram post.

The model shared a black-and-white photo of herself as a child as she’s holding onto a handful of balloons along with a touching caption sharing how grateful she is for all of her good and bad experiences.

“Can I be this little again? Birthdays have always been very emotional for me. It’s a time to reflect on your year and your life thus far,” she wrote. “I appreciate every moment. The ups and the downs. In your downs you can really figure out who’s supposed to be there when you’re up. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes [black heart emoji] this is just the beginning..”

Woods might have had a tough year, but she is no longer dwelling on her past actions and continues to appreciate every up and down that comes her way.

This was her first birthday without Kylie Jenner

Although Jordyn Woods is appreciative of all that has happen to her, this year was not the easier for her in the slightest.

While many friends and family sent Woods kind birthday wishes and helped her celebrated her 22nd year, this was the first birthday the model has spent without Kylie Jenner by her side.

Seven months after Woods was caught kissing Tristan Thompson while the NBA star was still dating Khloé Kardashian, Woods’ friendship with Jenner continues to remain strained.

Though Woods is still hopeful that she and the makeup mogul will one day reconcile, sources have claimed that coming to terms with their ended friendship has been extremely difficult for the model.

A few weeks after Woods covered the September issue of Cosmopolitan UK, Jenner celebrated her 22nd birthday with a few close friend in Capri, Italy, while the model attended a UOMA Beauty Summer House L.A. party thousands of miles away.

With this being the first birthday Jenner and Woods have spent apart, that day wasn’t the easiest for the model.

“Jordyn was with friends taking selfies almost the entire night,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “It appeared as if she was trying to hide in the back of her mind that this was … the first birthday she spent without Kylie.”

Now that Woods has celebrated her birthday, we can assume that her special day was pretty emotional.

Although she is still optimistic that her friendship with Jenner will one day be mended, Woods has realized that she will have to experience major moments in her life without her best friend.

This past year definitely took a toll on the model but she is continuing to move forward and is excited for what life has in store for her.
