So the other day I woke up and realized, “holy mac & cheese, I’m 29 years old“
Almost two months later, it finally sunk in
Twenty-nine is my last year in my twenties!
Looking back in my teens, I had envisioned my late twenties so differently
Anyone else ever feel this way?
99% of my friends are where I always thought I needed to be at my age
I think a lot of women feel the same way as I do, which is why I’m writing about it
It’s scary not knowing the future or living a very different life than everybody else
But it doesn’t mean it’s wrong or that you are in the wrong path
Once I stopped to think of where I am in my life right now
I realized it’s exactly where I need to be
We are programmed to follow what society wants us to do
And we are taught from a young age that it’s what’s expected of us
Here’s why I think freaking out about age is only going to lead you to the wrong path:
You will get desperate
Desperate women fall for anything & everything
Therefore, settling for the next worst thing
And then having to live with the consequences
I don’t know about you but I rather wait and be with someone who truly makes me happy.
Worrying in general sucks. I hate worrying, and trust me, I worry about enough things that I shouldn’t.
This isn’t one of them (surprisingly enough)
I’ll give you one good reason why I don’t:
I decided to put my happiness first
I am where I am because it’s a choice I made
I chose to wait until I was ready. I chose to find my own happiness first. I chose to lead, not follow.
And it’s liberating!
You can choose those same things if that’s what your heart desires
There is nothing worse than “doing it” just to do it (insert ANY example here)
It never ends well.
I choose to worry less in general.
My biggest resolution for 2016 was to live in the moment and I think I could’ve done a better job at it
My past still very much haunts me. I choose to let it go, all the horrible things, I choose to let them go.
I also need to be less harsh on myself
Life is too short to beat yourself up for everything. I choose to be kind to myself.
I also choose to wear more leather! 😉
See how I worded my list this year?
Saying you choose to do something is a lot more powerful than saying you will try to..
Your brain captures everything you say, so be very careful on how you word things, even thoughts.
I have tested myself all last week on how positive/negative my thoughts are
And when they went to negative, I fought with my mind until it was all positive
It takes work, you win some battles and you lose some.
I’ve lost some this weekend but I also won many last week.
You don’t get a do-over in life
Work on being as happy as you can be.
