I saw someone recently post that they felt so lost at 22. She has friends getting married and having kids, others still partying and drinking. Somehow she is caught in the middle with no idea where to be. The sentiment is clearly shared among many by the comment section.
The idea that this feeling ever really ends was possibly the most laughable part of all. Society gives us this idea that by some made up age we should have it all “figured out” is beyond laughable. Life happens! I was on one path and the rug was pulled out from under me. I was a super big health nut and I was not just injured but devastatingly injured with pain I still deal with even as I write this blog that ended my career at the theme park I worked for (FYI when they injure you they pretty much abandon you at the park I worked for) so it was back to square one for me. It was reinvention time, so I started my company, that didn’t align with me so here I am again. 32 reinventing myself again, granted with a ton less pain so I may dabble back prior to my injury but at the end of the day ITS OK.
We are all a work in progress and we don’t have to have the answers ever, we are different people when we go to bed than when we woke up. You aren’t stuck with what you wanted when you woke up and its ok!
We are all always a work in progress, we are always changing so what we want will always change. New opportunities will pop up, new circumstances will happen and things in life will always shift. You are not stuck with anything in life. Keep chasing what makes you happy!
