I feel like the only person who is not…
…within the next 6 months. Shout out to my other mid 20-somethings appreciating life one phase at a time. What’s the rush? We’ve only got another 60 years left *knocks on wood*.
Today isn’t the nicest day, it’s actually pretty drab here in Reston, but it’s the first Friday in a while where I’ve felt optimistic, especially about the future. I don’t know if everything is going to work out according to plan. That’s hard to think about, but I’m starting to remember that nothing is permanent unless you want it to be. Being proactive is key. For a minute I thought that I was going to be stuck in the same mindset on repeat indefinitely. That’s never going to be the case though.
A wise man once said “You only live once, that’s the motto, ni**a Yolo”. JK it was just Drake (the kid in the wheelchair from Degrassi), but I’m starting to think that he and all of those Frankie Goes to Hollywood style shirts are on to something. Life is too damn short. TOO SHORT. I’ve come back from every trial that I’ve been faced with and so have you. It may have taken some time, but sooner or later shit was straight.
Think about it. We’re going to fall flat on our faces another 30+ times so what is the point of all of the nail biting and sleep deprivation. This isn’t the same as no regrets, but just live in the moment. The next time someone pisses you off at work, screw em. What were they doing at our age? The same thing or something worse? Things didn’t work out with that guy. Do you know how many men there are in this city? Just go meet people, even if you think that there couldn’t possibly be anything out there for you.
Yolo all day. Everyday*
