I am in my twenties, and I’ve almost hit the mid-point of this pivotal decade. (Yes, 25 *cue Mr. Krabs with his tiny violin*) Our twenties are a time for us to live every moment of our lives, take risks, have fun, learn from our mistakes… Oh, and enjoy the journey!
There’s also the whole dazed and confused thing… Everything is happening SO FAST, but yet not fast enough! I love to plan ahead and so this whole, “figuring things out” and “next step” thing has been a difficult process for me. *Comment below if you can relate*
Being 20-something comes with privilege. The privilege to make the most of our young lives! These are the moments we will look back on and cherish, telling our grandkids those crazy stories…
Embrace your 20’s, and make sure to pack this advice in your carry-on 😉
1. Keep calm and Trust God
2. Commit to your decisions
3. Start healthy habits, like RIGHT NOW
4. The best thing for a broken heart is distraction
5. Trust yourself, listen to your intuition
6. Say YES more often and try NEW experiences
7. Be on time, FOR EVERYTHING
8. Do no harm, take no crap
9. Learn how to be financially responsible & manage your finances
10. It’s ok to be lost, dazed and confused
11. Self-care is just as important as mental care
12. Don’t be afraid to take a chance on your dream(s)
13. Invest in your friends, but don’t be afraid to let go
14. Travel as often as possible, and leave the country
15. Stay hungry, stay motivated and stay focused
16. Take off your makeup and wash your face EVERY. DAMN. DAY.
17. Focus on what’s important to you – Everything else will fall into place
18. First loves don’t mean sh*t (#sorrynotsorry, it’s true)
19. Be open to new and different opportunities
20. Do at least one thing that scares the sh*t out of you
Most of these are pretty self-explanatory, but if you’d like me to go into more detail, let me know in the comments!
The 20’s are a time of growth, remember that. Don’t be too hard on yourself, something I have to constantly remind myself. This is when we grow, mature and discover ourselves the most.
I don’t believe in regrets, but I do know that most people “regret” the decisions / things they did NOT do, the risks never taken and the dreams never pursued.
Don’t let anyone, anything, any job or any fear hold you back.
