Mid 20s might be the most confusing, awkward, and chaotic age. We are not kids anymore, and not quite adults either. Everything is transitioning faster than we realize. We are constantly comparing ourselves to our peers and rush to get married, gain success, and live the quote on quote “American dream”, but why? Instead of being in a rat race with ourselves, we are constantly reminded of the standards that America has placed on us. We tend to speed through life unknowingly and not appreciating the time and blessings that are right in front of us.
We expect to have everything happen when we want it to, instead of having no expectations at all. Sometimes we take life for granted, and miss out on the moments that are happening right before our eyes. Wishing the days away, only to realize that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. One thing is for sure, no matter how organized we are, or how well we plan, we can always expect the unexpected.
Life can be so unpredictable, and I’ve learned to stay calm and have faith through the storms. Those storms allow us to grow as humans. It is okay not to have it all right now. Continue to trust in the Lord, and know that what’s meant for you will be.
When we stop putting so much pressure on ourselves, we start to live in the moment. Focus your attention on what’s actually happening during the moment, instead of worrying about what the future might bring. It’s okay not to have it all figured out. We need to continue to work on ourselves internally and externally.
Stay focus on the task at hand, and everything else will workout. Enjoy your past successes, and learn from your past mistakes, but don’t let the past dominate your present life.
