Discoveries; New Horizons

It’s been a really long time since I last posted, mostly because of burnout and whole host of other things I’d rather not get into right now.

But I have come to a few conclusions about myself, my life, my adulthood and my being that I feel I should share. Usually I’m not so existential. I’m too busy dreaming about my life and how I want it to be – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as I will get to in just a moment.

So, I give you, my adult epiphanies.

The Boy I Never Knew

I’ve been in a thoughtful mood lately about a lot of things.

As I start my Master’s Degree (finally!), I worry that since it’s Distance Learning, I may not do as well.

I now have one less year of my twenties to go, what have I achieved? How do I feel about it?

Is my current career doing it for me or is it time for a switch? What really is making me so restless about life in general?

What even is life?

I made a lot of promises to myself at the beginning of the year.

My Mum

Today, I want to share my #HerStoryOurStory in honour of International Women’s Day.

I am not blind to the plight of women. For so many years, we have had to take a lot of nonsense for a lot of things and this had become the accepted way. I have watched the struggle and seen the issues and faced some of those challenges myself.

But today’s story won’t really be about feminism. It will be about one female in particular; the one who has had the most impact in my life so far – my mother.

Adulting… Or something similar.

When I was younger, I remember that I always wanted to grow up, get a job and I could decide if I wanted to work from home or not. I could afford all the sweets I wanted and watch all the cartoons I wanted. Ah… I miss that naive life.

I have been a legal adult for all of 9 years now and I have picked up a few pointers along the way. I am almost waving goodbye to my young adulthood and honestly, I’m a little sad to see it go (who isn’t?).

Recently, I have realised that becoming an adult is an intentional thing. You have to genuinely want to be what it is you have decided to be.

Big, Bold and Audacious!

The new year for me brought a few things to light.

First that the last year was not so bad. I really did do a lot of things I’m proud of – as I stated in my last post.

Second, that my twenties are flying by much faster than I intended – and this is for the most part because I don’t feel like I’m using them to their full potential.

Third, that I have a whole year to turn this around and actually get to doing something about it.
