I feel like being in your twenties is a constant cycle of reevaluating what you really want to do in life. We all want to have it all figured out & know the outcome of the things we are doing while we are doing them. It can be discouraging to live in such a fast paced world, & social media places a lot of pressure on not just women but everyone to achieve big things while they are young. Everything has to be above average to be commended & it has to be unique all at the same time.
As a girl with big dreams, being born & raised in Wyoming has sometimes had me entangled in the belief that some things will always be out of reach. This is not true & I will continue to at least attempt to break every glass ceiling until other girls see & believe they can do the exact same thing, because you can. I usually feel that way during times where things are uncertain, when I haven’t done something in a few weeks that I believe to be substantial enough to consider myself successful. There is such a stigma that you have to constantly be doing something, working on something, or achieving something in order to be considered successful.
I have learned that it is so important to cherish the downtime & the moments where you feel stagnant. Those are the times where I find the most growth, you can’t be creative all of the time & when your heart calls for a break, you need to answer. The secret to success is hidden in your everyday routine & it is important that you find one that isn’t just easy to maintain, but one that fulfills you & makes you feel accomplished at the end of the day. With any goal or dream, you have to be willing to make sacrifices & dedicate time to certain things even when you don’t feel like it.
The most fulfilling parts of our life are the ones that make us stop in our tracks & reevaluate the things we value in our life. If you are someone that is worrying about where your life is going to take you at the moment, go back to your core values & make sure they align with your mission. Everyone has a purpose in this life, whether you believe it or not, you have something you were put here to do. If you are here, you still have a destiny to fulfill that was created just for you, & you have to make your mark in this world.
Don’t get discouraged in the journey to achieving your wildest dreams, but embrace all of the difficulty you face. A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor <3 The hardest things we go through make us so much stronger & force us to level up to match the level of the things we are meant to accomplish.
You have to let go of the fear of failure in order to be receptive to all of the achievement that is available for you in this life. You will have to remove people from your life & replace them with people that align with your vision. Let go of your pride & be willing to make mistakes publicly & privately. The growth is in the moments where you feel the most vulnerable & when you learn to show all of the sides of yourself that make you so unique & so special, that is when you will be able to fully step into your authenticity & walk confidently on the path meant just for you.
