Cheers to life

Adventures of a 25 year old. Confusing? Yes. Complicated? Most definitely. Goal? To live, survive, and conquer!

I used to have my life together.
I knew what I wanted;
Where I wanted to go,
What I wanted to do,
How I wanted to live,
Who I wanted to be.

And then I grew up.

Somewhere along the lines
The golden days I spent chasing butterflies
With dandelion crowns dangling
From my mess of tangled hair,
Turned into sleepless nights
As my mind turned on the rest of me
While unfamiliar demons whispered in my ear.

I lost myself.

I lost sight of the light
And everything that once meant the world.
The real world hit me hard;
I’m still trying to push my way back up
And find the courage too keep going forward
Instead of dwelling in time already past.

I don’t know what to do.

It’s hard moving forward
With demons clinging to my feet,
And a dark, questionable path ahead,
But I’m not that innocent child anymore;
I know too much about life now
To turn around and live there.

I’m stuck.

Lovely :)

Amen to that

'My life will get better? You really believe that?' I ask.
‘It can. If you’re willing to do the work.’
‘What work?’
‘Not letting the world destroy you. That’s a daily battle.’

Saw this at a local cafe.

Becoming an adult is strange. It’s like the slow and steady process of growing from a child to a teenager; there isn’t a set date or event that marks it but just a steady becoming and unbecoming. You start to accept things that you can’t change more easily (especially yourself), start to get used…

I am turning 25 in July, scary thought. I feel so so soooo….not young. Therefore, I’ve decided to make a tumblr filled with my adventures/misadventures.

What will this blog be about? Well the challenges of post grad life, seeking independence, trials of being in my 20s, being a “millennial,” love, heartaches, and other stuff related to 20 - somethings

If you have a blog about being a 20-something, please follow and I will follow back.
