Everybody knows life is short but lately, the reality of how short life can be has really kicked in – and it’s almost given me an epiphany. The reality is… I’m 21 and I’m bored.
I’m jealous of every 21 year old who is out there living their life. I want to travel, I want to see the world. I’m not the craziest of 21 year olds but I want to go to a festival, I want to go on a safari, I want to go glamping, I want to go rock climbing, I want to go to a waterfall, I want to go to Disneyland! These are a small list of things I’ve never done and I just feel as though I really need to get my butt into gear and focus on living rather than just existing.
I need to broaden my social group. I need to do things for me and not always think about others. I need to do things that make me feel slightly uncomfortable. I need to stop caring so much and stop being so worried.
I need to have fun.
We’re not even halfway through 2017 and I’m planning for 2018 to be completely my year. My focus for the rest of this year is to start being more adventurous/spontaneous but mostly to start saving money so I can go on holidays and do a bit of exploring next year.
I’m so aware of hindsight and I don’t want to grow older and regret these years. I need balance. Balance between working and saving for my future – the family home I want more than anything PLUS all the things I want to do – and the splurging on right now & making memories.
I don’t really know what this post was, other than a massive stream of consciousness but there we have it.
Now let’s hope I can stick to it.
Hope you’re well 🙂
