No matter how old you are, sometimes you still need your Mommy. This is definitely true for me. My mom is the first person I call when I have even a small question like ‘where’s the best place to buy cocktail napkins.’ She keeps me sane most days, and we lean on each other for support in so many wonderful ways. I’m so lucky to be close to my mom, and I’ll never outgrow that amazing and special relationship.
Sometimes life can be really crazy and really scary, and you’re afraid you’re not doing as well as you hoped. Yeah, this one is true for a lot of people in their twenties. Some days life just seems like its at a stand still, and you’re not getting any closer to reaching that point in life where you find yourself. I’m learning that this anxiety is okay in small doses because it reminds me to look at myself and my choices from a new perspective. Life is scary, but in the best way possible.
It’s OK to not have a huge circle of friends anymore, but keep two or three really great ones. Truth be told, I’ve never been stellar when it comes to the friend department. I’ve had plenty of friends throughout my life, and I still do, but I’m not the best at keeping in touch and making plans (there’s a blog post coming on this, so stay tuned). Part of it is just my personality, but at this point there are only a handful of girl friends who I’ll talk to on a weekly basis. It’s nothing personal, but as time goes on I find myself falling into the introverted habit of keeping to myself more often. I’m working on it.
Does anyone else miss Nickelodeon from the early 2000’s? I do. And so does Lisa Lo Paro who wrote How ‘As Told By Ginger’ Totally Explains Life In Your Twenties. I used to watch this show a lot, and I feel like I’m going to be googling some old episodes soon for a little nostalgia fix. Here are a few points Paro made in her article that I love and want to expand on.
So, overall the article was a fun and quick read that gave me a laugh and also made me think a little bit. If you ask me that’s the perfect balance in a web article. I hope you’ll check it out and maybe get some perspective of your own. If you have any suggestions on articles for me to read, leave me a comment!
