Can we all agree that our twentys are such a confusing time because we're all trying to put together these better lifes for our future selves and sometimes it just doesn't go as planned. I'm twnety-two years old and of course I'm still learning, making mistakes, and growing throughout life but I believe our twentys are where we mess up the most and we learn the most from those mistakes. Looking around some of us are graduating college, starting careers, traving, getting married and so much more; so it leaves you thinking about your life and asking yourself "Is this where I'm supposed to be?" but my answer to that is yes! eveyone's life is differen't. Go as your own speed and if you don't like the way things are going then make an effort to change it.
Being in these "twenty-somethings" has been a intresting time for me. Reason being; I have learned to be more self independent, meaning to do things for myself without asking for help even when I know its available for me. Finding and learning more about myself as a young women is shaping me every day ( for the better of course ), I'm discovering what I like and dislike when It comes to certain people or siuations, my growth will contiune to grown as I become older and I can only hope for the best.
I got a chance to talk with Avry a 26 year old blogger from Charlottle, NC ( @NXCVINTAGE ).
She expressed that her twenties have been a learning curve and that she's still trying to figure things out, she also stated that " My three words are: patience, kindness, and listen. Be patient with things, if it doesn’t happen right away keep trying figure out what you did wrong and try again. Be kind, no one likes a bitch or someone that’s always in a bad mood. Push through those bad days. You’ll always be remembered for being kind. And last but not least LISTEN, listen to the people around you. You may not always agree with what the say but listen and take something from it. I never did that. Growing up if someone said something I didn’t like I would just completely shut them out and not listen. Once I listened, I learned a lot. " and to her futue self " Keep going! You’re on your way. Try harder and stay focused on your goals. "
I also spoke with many milllenials in my city and received a number of different responses most expressed that being in our twenties has its moments and that we live in a world we're soical media runs things so it's easy to feel like your not doing your best when you see others accomplishing more. Which I can totally agree with!
Remember who you are as you journey off into the world of adulthood, keep your morals in tack and venturo out even when it seems impossible to do! Keep yourself motivated even when you fail at something. We're only getting better at this life thing so keep going, you got this!
