Being In Your Early Twenties Is…Weird.

I’m only 22. However, I’ve noticed that since I turned 20, life has been…weird. Not bad whatsoever, just different (as it should be). I often find myself having moments of “what the heck is going on” and “wait…what?”

Like I said, it’s not a bad thing; it’s just a confusing time in my life.

I’ll admit, it can be very hard to embrace this period of life because you feel as if you’re constantly lost and just going through the motions, but I had a friend tell me once that it’s actually a beautiful thing. You don’t necessarily know where you’re going, but hey, at least you’re still going. You may not know your final destination, but the journey itself should be the fun part.

Once I began to look at it this way, I realized that this weird space I’m in is actually pretty cool because I am young and I don’t HAVE to have it all figured out. This is the one time in my life where I can be lost and not stress so hard about it. It’s all about self-discovery, and although finding yourself can be difficult, it’s the most interesting thing ever. So yea, my early 20’s have been weird so far, but a good weird. The type of weird that I pray I make the most of.
