Hello my butterflies 🦋
I am going to let you guys in on a little secret. Sometimes the happiest looking people are deep down not as happy as they seem.
I say this because I am a prime example of this. I am always smiling and joking. I am the first person to ask how somebody else is doing but not ask myself why I feel down. I am the person who will push my emotions aside to be there for the people I love.
I may seem like I have my world in order. I may seem like I know what I am doing but I am just as lost in this world as any other.
I have my days where life takes a toll on me and I am stuck trying not to drown. Let me tell you something, the 20’s aren’t how I thought they would be. No, it’s not about partying and relationships. In my 20’s I feel this pressure to be on the right path so in my 30’s I have the goals I am trying to reach.
There’s lots of stress associated with educational responsibilities, family responsibilities, and overall just living life.
The whole point to writing this is to say, no I am not perfect. No one is. I may always be smiling and joking around but somedays I am walking a tightrope as well. Balancing in life is hard. Reaching the other end of that rope is hard.
Although life is hard. I made a vow to myself that I will get through my 20’s with my imperfections. I will make it.
Ups, downs, mistakes, you name it. I will own them and I will graduate college and be who I aspire to be.
Remember you can be imperfect and reach a life so perfect you’ll believe imperfect is the new perfect.
