Dear Twenty-Something

    Don’t Forget What You Need

    “To bad, but its the life you lead, you’re so ahead of yourself, that you forgot what you need. Though you can see when you’re wrong you know you can’t always see when you’re right, you’re right.” – Billy Joel

    Dear Twenty- Something,

    Stop for a moment to breathe. The world will continue to turn, and your life will continue to move forward, even with this brief respite.

    Your choices seem limitless. Your future is bright.

    Stop and smell the roses. Read the book. Cook the meal. Call the friend.

    These small moments are the sustenance you need to make it to the next whirling dervish of crazy.

    You’re on to something good. These moments where you are letting go of control and letting a power greater than your own take it on are the moments you need to remember.

    Life is better when you don’t have to have it all figured out.

    Enjoy the people around you. Listen to their stories. Build them up. Carry them through their storm.

    For the endless cycle of love and support should never end.

    You were right all along. Things were going to start looking up.

    That time is now.

    Enjoy it.
