Be Brave, My Sons and Daughters

Being in your Twenties is something that is so much more difficult – and even more rewarding – than what they tell you it is going to be.

You’re told that you need to have everything figured out right now.  That you have to know what it is you want to do with the rest of your life.

Why do you have a life plan?  What happened to spontaneity? Life isn’t fun without some spontaneity.  You haven’t lived.
– That B—- in Apartment 23

I do not think that is what we should do.  I do not think anyone should live that way.  We should focus on being the best people we can be, despite all the obstacles we have to face on a daily basis.

There are all of these questions, these conundrums, these preconceptions that we feel need to be answered right now.  There is nothing I can do right now.

It is ok to not know how to fix things.

It is ok to be able to say: “I don’t know.”

It is ok to be lost, dazed, and confused.

That, I think, is more brave than anything.

  1. I’ve really been enjoying your blog. I’m nearing the end of my twenty-somethings, but relate to so many of your posts. Through the years I’ve come to the realisation you have here, too – that’s Its truly brave to just ‘be’, warts ‘n’ all. The more of us who stand there vulnerably, the more people feel that they can do the same – the makings of a happier world, I think.
    I’ve nominated you for Liebster award, if you fancy taking part, have a little look at the link below 🙂
