When life doesn’t go as planned…

I’m 28 years old and thankful for where life has lead me, but I would be lying if I acted like it’s been easy. Most of us have had big dreams at some point in our lives. I remember being a senior in high school and I had my whole life planned out. I was going to graduate a certain school, get a specific job, get engaged, get married, have kids, and live happily ever after.

Guess what? None of that happened. Thinking about it now, it’s probably because I wanted to get a bunch of things for me and it wasn’t about others. Life is exhausting if we are in it for ourselves. The cool thing is that people change, and I’m thankful that I’m not the person I was 5 years ago, 2 years ago, or even a week ago. I hope you’re not either.

If you know me personally, I’m a pretty energetic person 99% of the time. The truth is that I have bad days too and there have plenty of nights where I’ve felt like giving up and not trying anymore. I say things I shouldn’t. I act like I’m a toddler, and it hurts the people around me.

Life is hard. Being an adult is hard. Every person is at a different stage in life and has their own struggles. If you’re going through a hard time right now, don’t give up! You can make it and I know there are people that believe in you. I envision this being a place where we can be real about what’s going on in our lives, while at the same time being positive about the future and having fun! Cheers to Adulting!

  1. I’ve come to find that when I live my life to serve others over myself it really makes me feel like I’m fulfilling my greater purpose… which ends up making me happier.

    1. I feel the same way too Lauren. It’s easy for us to get caught up in everything being about us, but it’s you’re absolutely right about fulfilling a greater purpose. Thank you for sharing.
