Living life according to you!9/28/2013
"About dating and guys in general. And how come I can never seem to hold on to a guy? I'm 26. I should be in a serious relationship with a guy, and be planning my future. But instead, I'm not. " - Written on 09/22/2013
I think I need to address something on here. I wrote last Sunday, that I wasn't with anyone, and I didn't mean it to sound so cynical. I think I should have rephrased the sentence, and said, "But instead I'm not, I'm doing everything I want to do in my twenties. And it's not a bad thing at all!"
I went through my college phase, party phase, and then my traveling phase. And now I'm counting down the days until I turn 27 (which isn't a bad thing. It's actually a good thing!). I want to grow up with wisdom, and having a life in which I can tell people that yes, I did experience everything I've ever wanted to do!
I'm at the point in life, where I'm 26, and a lot of my friends are either getting married/are married/or in a serious relationship. And I'm doing something else. I'm enjoying life, I'm hanging out with new friends and old friends. I'm traveling.
Honestly though, I thought by 24, I would have been married to the man of my dreams, and have at least one child, if not planning on having one. Well I showed you LIFE! I didn't end up doing that. Instead at 24, I was at my wildest phase. Partying with my friends almost every weekend.
And then after that whole crazy party phase disappeared, I decided to start the whole traveling phase. Which was fun. And it was amazing. I really wished I could do it all over again.
The reason why I decided to travel alone as opposed to with someone who might be traveling with a person they are dating, is because I wanted to get it out of my system. I think sometimes having a little alone time, is good. And doing things by myself, proved that I can be independent. Sometimes you just need to prove to yourself that you can do something! And that's never a bad thing!
So when I'm 30, I can say that I did everything on my list that I wanted to do in my twenties! And I'm planning on even more exciting adventures and activities when I'm in my 30's, 40's, 50's, etc!
I hope that everyone can see the excitement of turning older. I can see how amazing it will be for myself!
And this blog post made me realize that I don't need to feel bad about turning older. It's actually a good thing to have all the experiences that we gain in life. And I don't have to do anything I do want to do. Whether that means getting into a relationship, or whatever. The world isn't black and white. It's filled with color, and amazing things yet to be discovered.
This article made me realize that everyday I have I'm grateful for, because if I wasn't here right now, writing this post, I wouldn't be able to tell all my readers, how thankful I am for all of the support you have given me.
So thank you for all the support you have given me over the past couple of years. You have no idea how amazing each and every one of you are to me. Without you, this blog would not be where it is today! And if you get any advice from this please let it be this, "Live your life according to you!"
