I had a mini meltdown because I was panicking over the fact that I'm 26 and just now applying to grad school. Which means that I won't be settled in my career until my early 30s probably. Which is TOTALLY FINE and I get that now that my meltdown has subsided.
Growing up, I always thought that by 25 I would own a house, be settled in a career, married (yay I got one, lol), etc. The older I get, the more I realize that things don't always go according to plan. And you know what? You can throw a fit about it or embrace it. Appreciate the stage of life that you're in right now, because where you're at today is going to help get you where you want to be tomorrow or next month or next year. I tend to have freak outs when things don't go according to my extremely detailed type A plan. I'm getting better, but I still struggle with it.
So even if you're not EXACTLY where you want to be RIGHT this second...try to be okay with it. Okay as in you're working hard to get where you want to be but still enjoying where you're at.
Ya feel me?
