WHY IT'S OK NOT TO STICK TO YOUR LIFE'S PLAN


When I was younger I had my whole life planned out. I knew when I wanted to get married, have kids, move out and what job I wanted but life actually happens and sometimes plans never work out as planned..

I always wanted to move out by the age of 20, be engaged by 22 and married at 24. Then kids at 25, then for my job I don't think I have ever mentioned what I wanted to do but I wanted to work for a magazine, I wanted to be either a beauty editor or have a little column talking about beauty. I think when we grow up we all grow up seeing our parents and grandparents achieving things at such an early age that we then think it's meant to happen to us like its expected of us.

In the last 8 years of having this expectation I have ended one toxic relationship and began a new one with someone who I actually wanted to spend my life with, but could never shake the idea of wanting to be engaged, married and have kids by 25. In the last 6 months, I decided to actually forget that mentality and enjoy my life and actually live it because everything changes when you have to settle down and really I'm no way mentally prepared for the big things like marriage and babies. I love living a life that is carefree (almost damn you mortgage haha) can go out when you want and I like being a Miss haha not ready to be a Mrs yet hehe. Oh, and for the job I have been in the same job for almost a decade! I start a blog and youtube channel where I do talk/write about beauty so I'm kinda almost there with the beauty type thing I wanted to do but instead of a magazine I have a blog.





I have seen so many tweets over the last few weeks that I wanted to share my own thoughts and feelings on this topic and of course,  everyone's different and things happen at different times for us all and that at totally ok but I feel like we need drop the expectations and remember that thing have changed. We are the youth that puts carrees before everything, and wanting to live before we settle down. Besides with us putting ourselves first and doing things we have always wanted to do we always have something to tell the grandkids hehe.


More of a life topic today from me but I kinda like to mix it up and give you guys a bit more from me than just style and beauty topics.. I will see you guys in a few days with a new post xoxo
