For Those Still Figuring It Out…

It’s okay to not have goals yet.

I started telling myself when I was 19 that I wasn’t going to force myself to have my shit together until I was 25. That’s allowed me to grow without pressuring myself, while acknowledging I’m going to start living more intentionally at some point. You don’t need to have anything figured out yet, but I hope you make an effort to start figuring out what you want to figure out. It’s not about accomplishing things, it’s about owning your own life. That what you do fits the image of who you want to be. You could spend every spare minute of your life just playing video games, and if you did that because you chose to because that’s what fulfilled you, then that’s a life well lived.

Especially if you’re young, don’t feel like you have to be a certain way yet, take time to learn about yourself and figure out what makes you happy and gives you purpose. Even if you’re 50, odds are you’ve got at least 30 more years left. If it took you 5 years to figure out how you want to spend the last 25, that’s still a lot of life left to live. You have the potential to be the best version of yourself, and it’s okay to ease into it. You don’t have to be perfect tomorrow.

  1. I like that your take on this relieves the very pressure that probably stops people figuring things out. And as well, a life spent figuring things out isn’t bad either, for that’s where all the juice really lies. Thanks for this post 🙂

    1. I completely agree, as long as you can keep inching closer to becoming yourself, that’s fine. You never have to “make it”. Thanks for the support!
