Being In Your 20s...


Oh wow, she's wearing head to toe black and sunglasses, she looks like she has her shit together. Well, guess what, I don't. 


Everyone bangs on about how hard is being a teenager, but to be honest with you, I find my 20s a much bigger challenge. You're expected to act like a grown-up when inside you still feel like a kid. You have the energy but not the money. You have your whole life still ahead of you, but somehow you feel like you should be someone and do something meaningful by now. Most people who are "someone" or who "made it", do so in their 20s, or so says the norm, so there's this invisible race where you want to reach for all your goals and hopes and dreams by the time you hit the big 3-0. 


You want to travel, you want to buy the house, you want to finally get a pet, you want a career and before you know it, you're lost in the chase. 

People do expect you to make the mistakes though. This is the time when most of us experience our first real heartbreak, the painful goodbye, the discovery that actually the job you thought you wanted isn't for you. We grow and we change. I can honestly say that the Kristina someone might have known 3 years ago isn't the same now. 

I'm 24, and I still see that insecurity in my mother's eyes which reminds me every day that actually, answers don't come with age. You get experience, yes, but life has never been designed with a point or a line where things definitely get easier or clearer. I think I've been spending most of my 20s so far, concerned with what I don't have or haven't achieved, instead of patting myself on the back for the little successes. Of course, you need to keep the fire burning and work constantly on achieving your end goals, whatever those may be, but it's also good to stop along the way and recognise your growth, no matter how small or big that might be. 


This is supposed to be the prime of your life. You're also bound to make life-changing decisions and occasionally... crucial mistakes that might bite you in the ass someday. It's part of the fun though, right?

Point is.... it's perfectly ok to NOT have your shit together right now. Thought I'd put it out there in case I have a bad day and need to read this back to give me a kick up the arse.
