A beautiful mess.

imageLife isn’t a straight line. There isn’t one right path for you or anyone else. And there isn’t a set timeline of milestones. But sometimes the pressure coming from peers, family, work, and society in general is enough to make us feel completely broken inside.
If we don’t have the “right” job, lifestyle, and so forth, by a certain age or timeframe, we assume we’re somehow broken.
And that’s not true at all.
You’re allowed extra time when you need it.
You’re allowed to backtrack.
You’re allowed to figure out what inspires you at different stages of your life.

Life is meant to be a series of zigs and zags. It should look like a mess, but a beautiful mess.
Mines a mess but not a beautiful mess so my advice to myself when I can’t see the light is
“Whatever situation you’re in right now, just know that it can change if you want it to. It’s up to you. You just have to turn yourself around and take every day as it comes.”
