Hello Darlings, The day after my 25th birthday I felt like a weight of the world has come crushing down on my shoulders. Not sure what changed within twenty four hours but on that day two years ago it all did. It’s as if the switch went off in my mind and the priorities have shifted or perhaps I finally established some. Within the past two years I have struggled in finding myself and envisioning what I want my life to be. It was during that classic dilemma of “20s are for making mistakes” and that “the 30s are the new 20s” where I finally realized that neither of those were true. Perhaps a comforting thought when you’re trying to navigate adulthood but far from truth. In fact, the opposite is true.
Our 20s is the most significant decade of adulthood where 80% of life’s most defining moments take place by the age of 35. Therefore the 30s are definitely not the new 20s because even the lack of action or decisions will define your life. Not making choices is a choice all the same. Upon realizing that there’s no pause from life regardless of the age that I’ve finally come to terms with importance of being a twenty-something.
