How many times have you told yourself that you have time to figure life out? That pat on the back you give yourself after your college graduation. You tell yourself that now is the time to get serious. You know, get married, have kids, have a stable career, be financially comfortable, have your life set up. Walking out the doors of your college dorm, you know that’s the future, but you have time.
Now you’re nearing thirty, forty, and so forth, looking back and going- well that didn’t happen.
Life throws major curveballs, and unfortunately you just have to run with the punches. It can be as simple as your car breaking down, and there goes a chunk of your savings. Or divorce from someone you thought was your life partner. Sometimes you’re just never ready for kids. You can’t control layoffs, nor a pandemic.
Sometimes you’re thirty-two sitting on your couch, realizing you don’t have everything figured out. And if I’m being honest, I’ve yet to see someone that has it figured out.
Life throws a hundred curveballs and the beautiful plans we have laid out don’t happen or fail. And honestly, that’s just life.
I’m sorry, but anyone who says they have their life exactly how they want with no stressors or things falling apart, they are lying. No one has figured it out. And that’s okay.
Everyone is so set on the idea that life has to be a certain way. That we all must follow a 1950s blueprint on how to live life. When, in fact, life can be anything we want it to be.
Having life figured out? That’s just a ruse because we feel like we’re not on the path we think we need to be on. Instead, we need to understand that life can be anything we want it to be.
So for simplistic reasons I will say it. It is okay to not have life figured out.
Instead of worrying about life and what will happen, go with the flow. Enjoy the time you have, how you want to.
And repeat after me:
You don’t need to have your life figured out.
