I read a quote the other day and it said…
Your 20’s are your selfish years. Old enough to make the right decisions and young enough to make the wrong ones. Be selfish with your time – travel, explore, fall in and out of love, be ridiculous and silly, stupid and wild. Be 20something.
Be 20-Something >> what a powerful statement.
I have always lived my life as if age was nothing but a number, yet as I get older I realize more and more that with age comes responsibility.
My 20’s are fleeting, and time is ticking, and I can’t help but wonder – have I done everything I wanted to do in my 20’s?
I’m not saying you can’t live an amazing life after your 20’s, however, with jobs, mortgages, marriage and kids, the dynamics change drastically.
As you get older you have to become less selfish…after all the beauty of being young is being selfish!
Don’t like your job? QUIT!
You aren’t happy with the person you are with? LEAVE!
Friends aren’t who you thought they were? DELETE!
You don’t want to have any regrets in life and think “what if?”
I don’t want to be 50-something thinking “gosh darn it…I wish I f*ckin went sky diving when I was young.” Who wants that kind of regret? Right now I am healthy enough to jump off that plane. Right now I have that DRIVE.

We have to live a life that we can be proud of, that we believe in, and that we love. It is a time to be selfish and to make mistakes (while still being somewhat smart). Because in the end, our mistakes become our experiences and our experiences become our memories.
So here’s to being 20-something. Silly and ridiculous, stupid and wild.
Time is ticking and the days are fleeting…
