Some Random Thoughts

Whenever I tell people where I'm at in life, the response is usually the same. They tell me what an exciting time this must be and how I have the power to be and do anything. Being 21 means that I am now a young adult; I'm the one calling the shots. And while this is empowering and exciting, it's also freaking terrifying.

I still don't know what I want to do in life or what my purpose is. I am graduating with a degree that I am starting to second guess, I don't know what city I'll be living in after June, and I don't know what kind of career I will be diving into. I don't know where my friends will be living or how often we'll get to see each other. It's a very strange feeling to have so much unplanned; it's something that is very foreign to me. 

But even though I am extremely overwhelmed, I also know that a great adventure lies ahead. There is beauty in the unknown. I am going to meet new people, explore new places, and have more experiences that will continue to shape me and allow me to grow into the person that I am meant to be. What I have realized is that there is a unique path for us all. In this digital age, it is so easy to compare myself to my friends and what they are doing. I am constantly questioning different aspects of my life, but at the end of the day that isn't doing anything beneficial. I have to trust myself and my own path.

I know it's been awhile since I've posted on this blog, but I have missed it so much. I want to use this space to document what it's like to be in my 20s in this day and age as well as look back to see how it all eventually worked out.
