“Wildflower; pick up your pretty little head,
It will get easier, your dreams are not dead.”
– Nikki Rowe
Dear Twenty- Something,
Does it feel like everything is just hitting rock bottom for you right now? The stress keeps mounting, and all those things you are working so hard to accomplish feel like they are never going to come to fruition.
Get the degree, they said. You won’t regret it. Yet, as you sit through another group meeting on a Friday night, you have to ask yourself: was this really all that worth it? You gave up so much of your life for this. It better be worth it.
Quit the job, you decided. But you also don’t know how to have free time, and you are constantly worried about how others might see you.
There you go. You’ve got this.
Everything happens for a reason. Isn’t that a mantra you preach to your friends?
You are exactly where you need to be, in this exact moment in time. Do not forget that.
Soak in every moment. You will never be in this exact moment again. Don’t miss any part of it.
Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself those questions that helped to form the person you are today:
Who am I? What do I want?
It’s time for an update anyways. Your dreams have evolved, just as you have, and a re-evaluation is always welcome in your life.
You are strong. You are beatiful. You are loved.
Don’t ever forget it.
