My birthday is coming up next month, and i cant help but look back at my life and how things are now. I thought by now i’d have an amazing job, traveling the world, and have my own place, but none of that has happened yet. I’d be lying if i said i wasnt disappointed in myself, because in some degree i am. Everyone would also be lying if they said they didnt want there parents to be proud of them, because in the back of my mind i want my parents to be proud of me and the success in my life. Im turning 25 next month on the 7th; i feel as if every time i get older the more pressure their is to get my life together faster. Time is going by so fast…I hate how i get caught up in what everyone thinks things should be for me. I hate getting caught up with money, finding an awesome job etc… Sometimes my focus is so narrowed in on those things, that i forget the simple things in life. Back in the day i couldnt wait to grow up, everyone is such in a fast pace mode that we forget to stop and not take things for granted.
