Over the past year, I have been trying to pin-point this apprehensive fear as my birthday draws nearer. As I am about to officially reach a quarter-of-my-life, I feel this great deal of pressure from the people around me. People are asking me questions about where I am headed in my career, when am I going to start dating and when am I going to start investing in my retirement.
This is all just part of being your twenties, and it’s hard not to avoid getting “lost” within your journey in figuring it all out. Tired of being soaked in this fear of aging, I started to ask myself what makes getting older a great thing?
For the first time ever, I had pitched and submitted an article to Literally, Darling, discussing how I’ve reached my mid-twenties with a sense of acceptance. In the middle of the night, I had awoken with a sudden urge to spill out all that I had difficulty to explain onto what we’ve replaced paper with today, Word Doc. Hopefully, some of you can relate to what I am addressing and that it can help provide you insight to what you’re experiencing as well.
