I for one, love a good life chat.
Snuggling down with a coffee and having a right old chinwag about everything and anything is one of life’s simple pleasures.
Lately when catching up with friends, the hot topic of conversation has mostly been about the mental life as a 20 summin, especially when everyone in the friendship group seems to be at different stages in their lives.
The funny thing is, half the time when I’m attempting to adult, I’m to going to work and having to make important decisions and have mature conversations, whilst the other half of the time, I’m in my pajamas watching Alice in Wonderland and eating party rings.
So many people feel lost in these years. Feeling like they should of made different decisions back in school, feeling like they should have spent more time traveling and seeing the world before settling into a job and starting a career; and a lot of the time we are trying to do 1200391 things at once because we are constantly comparing ourselves to others.
I think it’s a good thing to feel a bit all over the place, the same way it is healthy to question yourself and how you want to spend your life.
“Your 20’s are about experimenting, exploring and a whole load of trial and error.”
For some people they see their 20’s as a time to work round the clock to achieve their dream job, for others its taking the time to see the world and ‘find themselves’ and some people are happy just watching a new series on Netflix in bed and If that is what floats your boat at the time then there’s nothing wrong with that.
My advice is surround yourself with the people who bring you up, make you belly laugh and who inspire you. Try your best to not worry about what others think, everyone has their own opinions and that’s alright.
One important thing I have learnt over the years is to celebrate the small wins. It could be the most simple thing like getting that email sent, finalising a blog post before rushing off to work or making a call you have been putting off, celebrate it because It’s those little pats on the back you give yourself that will inspire you to carry on.
I guess what I’m trying to say is the majority of us at this stage in our lives are completely and utterly winging it. Some may have more of a plan than others but ultimately in your 20’s its okay to not have it ALL figured out just yet. The most important thing is to big each other up and support one another. We are all have to live in this crazy world together so spread smiles, love and lots and lots of prosecco.
