I know what you’re thinking…the world does not need another blog by another 20 something girl thinking she knows it all. That exact thought is the reason it’s taken me so long to write this very post. For so long I have fallen victim to caring about what others thought of me. For the most part I think this is a pretty common thought we all have and for good reason, the human race is a tough crowd to please. Everyone always seems to have something to say and it always seems to be negative. I would be embarrassed by the weirdest things, I never wanted to show anyone what I was truly thinking or feeling because I was afraid of what people would say about me..seems quite silly when I actually type it out. I’m writing this now because what I’ve realized…no one actually gives a shit, and this “embarrassed feeling” has been what’s stopping me from doing so many things I’ve wanted to do. Like writing a blog.
Male or female we have all fallen into this vicious cycle of life. Graduate high school – better be honours. Get into a decent university – but preferably sciences because what can an arts degree get you? Dive right into that 9-5 after you get that degree – but make sure it has decent salary + benefits, and then work, work, work, you have to pay off that student debt! In the middle of this make sure you fall in love with someone though! We can’t forget that. Then you move in together, eventually have lots of babies, most likely gain some weight, let’s say 5-10 pounds a year until your sex drive and lust are completely gone. Also don’t forget this whole time you are working that 9-5 office job you most likely despise, and then bam. You are 40! Your life is officially over!
If that just scared the absolute shit out of you you have come to the right place.
It took me 22 years, $43, 385.31 worth of student debt and a LOT of tears to realize that I want so much more out of this life than to just glide my way mindlessly through that cycle. I am terrified of regret, waking up one day and realizing I’ve done nothing that I’ve wanted to do, that fear of regret has really been taking over my life, so much so I decided I NEED to make a change. The only thing that has changed in me is what I’ve realized.
You are 100% responsible for you life. It’s really not that scary, I don’t even really think it is a secret, we all subconsciously know that. Absolutely no one is going to do anything for you. Your mom can’t help you look a Victoria’s Secret angel (or who ever you want to look like, fuck yes body positivity!) So stop scrolling through instagram wishing you had Kendall Jenner’s life and complaining about yours because that’s getting you nowhere, clearly.
If you’re anything like me and are sick and tired of sitting on your bed watching Netflix every night, eating like shit, telling yourself you’ll start tomorrow, you’re sick of waking up every Sunday hungover af dreading the week to come, living for the weekends, you are in the right place honey. I’m still very new to this side of things, so bear with me. But why not do this together? This entire space is meant to be a judge free zone made for everyone who loves learning new tips n tricks for becoming the best YOU. Because duh, why wouldn’t you.
The grammar probably sucks, there’s most likely spelling mistakes, I have no idea how to use word press and don’t get me started on my run on sentences. Here’s to hoping this whole post even made sense! But you know what, I started, and that’s all you have to do too.
