So here I am, yet again, talking to a computer screen. I feel like this is how most of us communicate these days. And by all means, there is nothing wrong with communicating this way – it is what the world has become. Now bare with me here because this is just a word vomit post.
To aid in this online life, most peoples views come from all of our favourite social medias: instagram, facebook, twitter, etc. Everyones life online seems to be perfect. No one has any struggles – or at least if they do it is not openly shared. Now don’t get me wrong, there are definitely some exceptions, but the majority of everyone seems to have a perfect life.
I feel like this would be especially hard for individuals with young kids who are brought up with all this social media around them. They are going to expect perfection and for everything to work out according to plan – spoiler alert: nothing works out according to plan. When I was in high school I most certainly pictured myself being somewhere else in life in my mid 20s then where I am right now. There is nothing wrong with that though. I now feel like if my life did not happen completely different then I imagined when I was younger I would not have grown into who I am today. Strong, independent, care free, and finds humour in everything – that is one of my keys to a great life. Gotta always laugh it out. May not be the day you go through shit that you laugh about it, but eventually you’ll find the humour in everything. If you aren’t laughing everyday are you even living?
Smiles are contagious (bad word choice during this time? lol) so spread them!
As I sit here typing, I still have no clue exactly what my end goals in life are or how I will reach them, but you best believe that I am writing down ideas and thinking about what makes my heart truly happy. I don’t think it is ever too late to try to reach your dreams or do something that scares you in order to grow.
Just know, we are all lost to a certain extent and that is ok. Life is full of surprises. Go down your path with an open mind and heart and be ready to embrace anything thrown your way.
Until next time,
