Hello guys,………okay seriously, have you ever felt like you’re a plastic bag wasting your life away while you float around in the wind?? Unsure of what you’re supposed to be doing right now or unsure of whether or not you’re going to be someone?…..
You’ve just turned into your twenties and who can expect you to Adult so quickly? Who can really expect you to make life decisions when just about a year ago you had to ask permission to use the bathroom? You see people you went to school with studying to be doctors or lawyers and you’re at home binging out on Series (because dangnaggit, you have to watch just one more episode!).
At 20-something you either feel like you’re supposed to have your life together, or, you’re sitting there thinking where did I lose the plot. You had all these dreams and ideas for yourself but between matric and now you realize that you never got to it. You feel like you haven’t accomplished enough because other people around you have gotten more things accomplished and are getting promoted and starting families already. And to add more injury to insult, those people are sometimes younger!! Urrrgh………
I speak to my friends a lot about life in general and most are about my age (20- 30) and they beat themselves up about it with self-doubt, fearing the worst, uncertainties about their careers and mistakes they’ve made which got me thinking: It’s okay for us to screw up, we’re still finding our feet.
You need to stop being so hard on yourself, you made it this far even with all the bumpy and awkward roads. Yes, you might not be where you thought, but you’ve come along way and baby, it can only get better. You are much more than your failures and mistakes.
We are young, the world is our Oyster (cringe! so cliche’…….) There is nothing standing in your way of being who you want to be except YOU!
Get your mindset right, believe you can and you will!
Make a vision board and hang it up where you are forced to see it every.single.day.
Try new things, explore life. Live a little, don’t take everything so serious all the time.
Surround yourself with positive people and those who believe in your vision, make time for family and friends as they will be there when the picture doesn’t really turn out the way you wanted.
If you’re single, honey, it’s okay. This isn’t the old days where you have to be married with 6 kids by the time you’re 25.
Lastly, Have Fun! Don’t over think, don’t ruin these few years in your life by thinking you’re supposed to have it all figured out.
Because the truth is, who does?
