These Four Years

Why do your four years after high school, feel so incredibly pressured? Its like the entire weight of your existence is relying on how well you do in these four years. How well you do in college, internships, career fields, relationships, wealth and so on. You're constantly wondering if you're doing the right thing and if any of this is really going to be worth it in the end. You're afraid that in the end you'll come up short or not truly be happy with what you're doing. The pressure to amount to something is detrimental. Failure is your worst fear. You're wondering what your next step is and the best possible way to get there. All while, trying to live your life and make connections with people. What's the rush honestly? We seem to be racing toward adulthood, without truly enjoying what's left of our young days. But for what? Adulthood will always be there, waiting. But our youth? That's fleeing right from under us. Why do we live for the future, when we should live for now.

  1. Insightful observations... I wish more of us (myself included) would give ourselves permission to just BE.



Everything about you screamed danger. But that's what got me hooked.  I grew up surrounded by a safety net. Never really worried ...
