When you’re 22, you think your first love will be your only love. And that craft beers are a right of passage.
Your Barbies won’t make it out alive.
I have enough experiences to give advice when asked, but not enough to offer unsolicited wisdom. I’m old enough to have strong opinions, but young enough to still listen with an open mind.
The things you choose to buy, your health, who you choose to marry, your career, your emotions, and your finances. These decisions all happen in the background without you noticing.
Too many of us go all our lives living a life that is pre-written by someone else. We go to school, get our degrees, get a “good job” and then live the life exactly the way millions of people lived before us.
Sure, I don’t have all of my boxes checked off and maybe I don’t have everything I need or want yet. But maybe I don’t really need those things after all.
Don’t obsess over age. Realize everybody does this. Yes, there will be better years than others, but each different year makes you, you.
You will undoubtedly, not too long from now, have a family of your own. And down the line, when the time comes for me to leave, I need for you to decide not to be sad.
Live with your own definition of integrity and grace.
s much as I love feeling my feelings and sharing my thoughts, I never imagined that I would be placing a burden on those who I share them with.
