You're Almost 30, You Are Not Behind: The Best is Yet to Come
I turned 29 this year (I know...) and while the pressure seems to have been on, over the last few years of my 20's, When are you getting married? When are you having kids? Don't you want to buy a house? Aren't you ready to settled down? I have decided to block all of the outside noise out for the last few months of my 20's and really ask myself "what do YOU want?"
I hit 29, looked around me and not only all of the sudden seemed to have all of these expectations put on me but expectations I put on myself. While just a few months in, I've already learned a lot as I exit my 20's.
I am not behind (and neither are you). Who made up these rules and stipulations based on age anyway? I am not behind I've just simply chosen to live my life on my own ters and made the choice not to have a kids yet, the choice not to own a home, the choice to move where I please, and the choice to take my time. We all do things on our time anyway right? How boring would the world be if we all went the same route? (sounds like a snooze fest to me)
In the words of Bryson Tiller, "Note to self, stay true to self." Do what's best for you, always. No matter how hard the choice may be or what anyone thinks or says about it, only you know what your goals are. Only you know what you want out of life. Only you know what's best for you so do you boo. (that was a reminder for myself)
Saying "no" is not impolite. "No" I don't want to go. "No" I don't want to do that. "No" I don't want your opinion. "No." Now go to your bathroom, get in the mirror, and practice.
Start over and take risks. As many times as you want to. Regardless of what anyone has to say you are still young.
What are some things you've learned as you exit your 20's?
Love, Life, & Light
