If you could have told me six years ago that this what I would have achieved by the age of 24 I would have laughed at you. At the age of 18 I was determined that I would own a house, have a long term relationship, a rewarding career and potentially even a child. Here I am, only just hitting my career off the ground and making decisions based on maybes and the unknowns.
Many of my friends are engaged, married, pregnant or are a parent already. Your’s might be too. I used to question if I was moving to slow and if I was ticking the right boxes for a 24 year old. Over time I accepted that I am where I am because I did what I did to get here.
My story as a twenty something is not what I anticipated it to be.
For me, establishing a career is alot harder than I thought.
For me, getting this far in my studies to only want to study more was never on the cards.
For me, having a home and being a mother is not a priority right now.
It is so important to be proud of what you have achieved. Give yourself time to reflect. Give yourself some time to be in the sun and under the stars. Life moves so fast and the people who go with it. Your friend may move in one direction and you may move in another. Put your heart into the things you love. Distance yourself from the people who bring you down.
