Welcome back cuties
This is going to be another chatty post so grab some snacks
Recently, I find myself having a lot of conversations regarding ‘not being where you hoped you were at a certain age‘ that was definitely a mouth full to type.
My school year are either turning 25 after August or next year and I can feel the panic in the air. 25 is a big ol age, its means you’re an ADULT now, no going back.
So does turning 25 mean I need to stop putting Disney films on in the background whilst i’m responding to emails? Sending inappropriate Snapchats to my friend? Whining like a child when I can’t find my favourite soya milk in tesco?
DO ALL THE CRAZY ASS STUFF YOU USED TO DO WHEN YOU WERE 24,23,22,21…..
I need everyone who is reading this to listen to what I am about to say next *clears throat*… You will never be where you wanted to be because unfortunately our lives are not controlled by us. Simple. Speaking on myself, I’m definitely not where I wanted to be at my age but however I’m happy I’m not where I used to be. Speaking mentally, physically and emotionally. At the age of 24 I saw myself married, in the career of my dreams, having my own flat and whats so funny is that none of these things have happened in my life (laughs) but i’m not going to cry about it
If you’re not where you want to be its okay! Don’t look at other people on social media or individuals who may have been in your school year, friends and think ‘bloodfire what the heck am I doing with my life’. Except understand where you are, understand what you need to do to get to your goal and start that journey. Nothing worth having comes easy, so be prepared for the rains and storms ahead; but if you’ve packed correctly for the weather you’ll eventually arrive at your destination home and dry.
No one else is going to chase your dreams for you, so honey you better go put them Nike running shoes on and go chase it. Your dream isn’t going to come to you if you’re not doing anything about it. I hear a lot of people say ‘I hate my job’ …’I’m unhappy at work‘ so what are you going to do about it? Are you being proactive in looking for another job in a industry you are passionate about. If this is you, you need to wake up and smell the coffee.
When I turned 24 I still felt like I was 18 in spirit. Then I met an 18 year old and I realised I had nothing in common with them. I then met another 18 year old and had nothing in common with them either. From now on I will avoid 18 year olds as my worst fear has come to life. Im getting old haha.
However some of us may actually be where they wanted to be and that’s amazing. To those who aren’t as fortunate as the others. In the famous words of my favourite fish…”Just keep swimming”
