So for us 20-somethings out there, I’m sure most of us can relate somehow when I say we are all just trying to make our way to the top and make ends meet, whether its getting through school or holding down a job or two, or three (yes, I’ve been there). Maybe some of us 20-somethings have children and a family, or maybe some of us have yet to experience a taste of real life outside our egg shells. Whatever it is, we are all at the time of our lives to give ourselves a chance to just stop, take a deep breath, look around, soak in our surroundings, and smell the garbage we so wish were roses. But don’t let that get you 😉 Work hard, stay focused, and no matter your priorities and responsibilities, don’t forget that we are the youth of this generation and we deserve the time to bloom and enjoy every second of it!
Check out this inspiring article:
By Ryan O’Connell
“We’re not stuck. Even if it feels like we are, it’s not true. We’re the opposite of stuck. As twentysomethings, we’re constantly moving — apartments, relationship, cities, jobs. Anything is possible. People are ready for you. They want to hear what you have to say. They look at you and are curious about what words are going to come out of your mouth. You’re the new generation. What do you have to say? Don’t bite your tongue. One day you’ll be pushed aside for a younger “fresher” perspective so you better get it out now. Make a mark. Make a stain. Make something.”
