A good friend recently told me that our 20's are a time of discovery. A time to explore, struggle, grow, and ultimately shape our future. There are a lot of big time decisions to be made in our 20s and it can be overwhelming.. This is the time to fall down repeatedly and get back up. To get hurt and become stronger. To test our career path, our relationships, and who we really want to be...
So be strong! Be that believer. Be okay with taking chances and risks everyday. Travel as often as you can and don't waste a minute. Don't let someone else or something else define you. Live in the now and just "be" ... Don't think too much about the future. You are exactly where you are supposed to be, and like I constantly say, you are doing better than you think. Expect the best out of yourself.
My 20s have been a great journey so far. Wow.. There have been some ups and downs, some laughs and tears...but oh how much I have learned. I've learned the true value of family and how a niece or nephew can change your world. I've danced with incredible individuals. I've graduated from college and freaked out because I didn't know what the heck I was going to do with my life. I've seen deaths. I've seen love.. I've fallen in love.. And I have had a better taste of life and what it TRULY means to grow.
So in honor of those fantastic 20s, I have decided to try a special something. I would love to hear from you... And what I want to hear are the good things. We live in a world where there is too much negativity thrown in our faces and we miss out on those simple, good, beautiful moments. So I want to hear about those moments! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know of something happy or positive that you witnessed today. It could be as simple as seeing a couple hold hands and smile at each other, or someone open the door for another stranger.. A personal story. A life changing moment. Whatever you would like! I just want it to be positive :) I will post a happy moment everyday for the next 20 days. What better way to celebrate life, our 20s, and prepare for the happiness of the holidays ahead! :) thanks!
