A few days ago I was having a conversation with someone about how frustrated I was to be in my 20’s. I complained that I had no money, couldn’t find a job because of my “lack of experience” and well the list continued on.
That very same person helped me realize that being in your 20’s is quite the gift. The woman I was speaking with happened to be a few generations older than me and said,”I wish I was in my 20’s again. You have everything in life to look forward to.”
I started to realize just how much I loved being in my 20’s. I literally had my entire future in front of me: my first job, getting married, my first home, my first child etc.
The list below is just a small sampling of why I love being a 20 something.
1.My ability to eat like a horse and still wake up with a flat stomach the next morning.
2.The feeling of being madly in love
3.My love for stupid stupid youtube videos
4.My belief that it really is possible to “have it all”
5.My ability to accept everyone no matter what they believe or look like
6.My crazy desire for random, fun adventures
7.The ability to wear 5 inch heels all day without my feet or back hurting
8.My ability to get excited about almost anything
9.My desire to see the entire world
10.My desire to meet everyone and hear their personal story
11.My belief that I really can change the world in a significant way
12.My obsession with being in shape
13.My ridiculous obsession with reality television (Yes, I sometimes watch The Bachelor, Jersey Shore, and Teen Mom.)
14.My belief that the world is really filled with more good people than bad
16.My ability to always look five years younger than I actually am
18.Being able to fit into my high school jeans
19.My love of really really loud music
20.My ability to sleep in past 11:00, stay in my pj’s all day, and not feel a bit guilty
Try making your own list. It’s actually quite fun.
