Good morning beautiful hooomans.
This past week felt like a whirlwind. This is evident in the fact that I can’t remember chronologically what happened. Nope, not even a little. It all just mushed together. I can tell you that it was a rather anxious week though. Lots of thinking about getting into college, paying for college, and the ultimate “whattheheckwillmylifebelikeintenyears” thought was just circulating and circulating in my mind.
I was being introspective to the point where it became all about me.
Introspection is totally awesome, I might add. It’s a gift that develops as we age, and hopefully, it helps us think about who we are and how we’re doing at this whole life thing.
It also can make us super egocentric…thinking that the entire universe revolves around what happens to ‘ME’.
Life goes on if you don’t get into the college of your dreams.
Life goes on if you get that job that pays six figures.
Life goes on if you fail.
Life goes on if you have debt.
Life goes on if you don’t get to do all the things on your bucket list.
Life goes on if you feel defeated.
Life goes on if all the people around you are getting married, having babies, and buying houses, but you’re single and living independently.
Life goes on if the plan you had for your life falls through because who are we to think that we’ve got it all figured out.
It’s normal to feel anxious about the future or about your current place in life, but I’ve realized that dwelling on it too much, not only makes me upset but unable to appreciate the successes and joys of the people around me. It’s helpful to remind ourselves that life will probably not go the way we intend it to go. In fact, it’ll throw us a whole lot of curve balls. We can be confident in knowing that through it all…
Life. Goes. On.
Bye loves ❤
Have you ever been introspective to a fault?
How do you avoid being anxious and overthinking the future?
What area in your life do you need to tell yourself “life goes on”?
