When I was 20, I thought 30 was really, really old. As in, 30 may as well have been 80 to me back then. HA!!! I was so naive and immature. Of course, the older I get, the more I realize that age is just a number. If I could turn back time and be 20 again with all the knowledge and lessons I’ve acquired, that would be amazing.
But, that’s impossible, obvi. I don’t have a problem with aging. It’s taken me a long time, but I know what I want for my life. The thing is, it’s always been what I wanted, but I didn’t think it was possible or that it was okay for me to want these things. I’ve been living in a fog for so long and uncovering it has been incredibly liberating and scary.
We put so many limits on ourselves and allow other people and things to tell us how to live that it’s so easy to lose sight of what we want for ourselves. Or, to even figure out what that is. If I could give my 20 year-old self some advice, I would tell her to go after what she wants and not worry about what anyone thinks.
Here is a fun age test I found: http://www.age-test.com/
What do you think? Are you as old / young as the test indicates? What advice would you give to your younger self?
