There comes a time in your life where you begin to reevaluate your friends, school, work, love, life (everything really.) This spell of over-thinking usually results in a mental breakdown and an empty bottle of wine.
Am I nearing the end of a beautiful era? …heart pounding… Cue the anxiety attack.
How are we expected to know what we want to do with the rest of our lives, during our final years of youth?
Well, I’m here to tell you, it’s not gonna happen (or at least it hasn’t yet.) I’m almost 23 and still lost. As scary as it sounds, there’s a sense of beauty in being lost. I’m fully embracing my youthfulness. You’re only young once, you have plenty of time to sort it all out, later. Make mistakes, take chances and regret nothing.
Don’t stress the “shoulda, coulda, woulda.”
Life is full of trials and tribulations. You’re not going to have the answers to everything, you won’t have everything figured out and you’re not always going to get it right the first time around. So, go with your gut, take a risk and see where it steers you. Sometimes, the wrong choices lead us in the greatest and most unexpected directions. Regardless, everything happens for a reason and although it may not be ideal, you have to trust the journey.
“Nothing will ruin your 20s more than thinking you should already have your life together.”
