Living A Life in My 20s

Have you reached a point where you reached a point in your life where it’s finally time to stop wishing your life away and start making things happen? Maybe you just finished school? Or do you just get your first real job? Maybe you just (finally) moved into your own place? Whatever the case may be, there is no better time than now to put yourself first finally.

‘The best is yet to come.’ This is a quote from Dr Seuss used to encourage kids of all ages to live their lives to the fullest. There’s a lesson to be learned from this quote: seize the day. Every moment you are alive, why not make the most of it?

Take some risks

You can take more risks in your 20s. You’re young, healthy, and malleable, or so you think. Maybe you’re afraid of failing. Maybe you’re afraid to succeed. Maybe you are paralyzed by the uncertainty of it all. But in order to live your life wholly, you must continue to take steps that scare you, and that push you outside of your comfort zone. When you live out of fear, you’re limiting your potential. So, take more risks, kid, because there’s always another purple unicorn in that forest.

It’s ok to say no

You don’t have to be best friends with everyone. You don’t have to say yes to every request or task that comes your way. The unfortunate reality is many people will take advantage of that and be offended when you say no. You set an intention, and you want to make a point, but you sometimes can’t help it. You say yes to too many things and find yourself overloaded. Feeling overwhelmed is a pretty common feeling.

Love and accept yourself

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy. Now, imagine having to make lemonade out of a pile of rotten lemons. So the question is, how do you make the best out of lemons? Look inside yourself, analyze, be real, be honest with yourself, and then accept and love yourself first.

So, you’ve finally accepted that you’re not always going to find your prince charming, and you’re ready to move on with your life. Don’t rush, though—you haven’t moved on until you’ve accepted who you are, flaws and all. Many women in their 20s still have insecure versions of themselves and aren’t ready to embrace themselves. This negative self-talk can interfere with your ability to not dwell on past mistakes that may make you feel inferior. Take a look at the common self-critical thoughts and reevaluate if they apply to who you are as a person.

Make your weaknesses your strength

You face many obstacles and setbacks in your 20s, so the question of how to turn them into strengths is one worth asking. For some, it’s a matter of embracing the fact that a setback is a learning experience, while for others, it’s a matter of recognizing the more challenging aspects of life and accepting them. But, no matter what kind of setback it is, there are a few things you can do to turn it to your advantage.

In our 20s, we have the advantage of being young, with enough time and life experience to build a strong foundation. We’ve studied and survived our first few years, and now it’s time to begin building our careers. But this same experience can make it difficult for us to rein in our youthfulness. After all, when do we get to make “lately” happen?

The mindset of a 20-something is different from the mindset of a 30-something or an 18-something. As a young adult, you need to set goals, dreams, and aspirations that are just as grand as what you’d like to achieve when you’re older. But, it’s equally important to set attainable goals. Being successful in your 20s requires being realistic because that can lead to your future success.

The thing about your 20s is, you’re young, you still have time on your side, and the world is your oyster. But, you’re also very focused on yourself, which is undoubtedly a good thing. Because I believe the most important thing about our 20s is to live life with purpose. This decade of your life is your time to learn, grow, and discover what you love doing. And, I believe that in order to do all those things, you need to be intentional about your life.
