Don’t Just Show Up

“The best thing about being twenty-something is that you have the priveledge and freedom of being an adult without any of the responsibilities. You need to feed yourself and support yourself, but you don’t have to support anyone else.

The worst thing is that you don’t have a true sense of yourself. I was at the mercy of outside forces. I did what I thought I was supposed to do…and then I just took the next step. Job, dating, marriage. And supposed to have a baby at 30. But by 30 I was divorced and wondering what did I really want?

Don’t just show up and do what you are supposed to do. If you don’t know what you want, just try things. There is no stigma with that. If you are resourceful you don’t need to be afraid of failure. Just try something you want to do now. It doesn’t have to be the rest of your life…except for marriage or children which should be. – forty-something … A wish for a twenty-something
