As an adult, I have found that the scariest question I’m faced with is: “Andrea, what are you doing now?”
This question is in no way intended to make me feel inferior, it’s usually just a great conversation starter if you haven’t seen someone in a while.
However, I find myself rambling on and searching for ways to answer. While my accomplishments make me proud, I also feel like I should be doing more. I feel like I should have much more accomplishments under my belt at almost 30 years old.
I began thinking about this today. I asked myself silently; “should I feel this way?”
I know that maybe I’m just having a hard to embracing my birthday in a few months but I also know that I have felt like this for such a long time and suffered in silence with it.
I wish I could offer some advice to help others like myself – but sadly, I cannot.
However I can say this: embrace who you are. Never be ashamed of who you are or your accomplishments. No matter how small the accomplishment is, it’s still yours so embrace it and celebrate it!
No one has the same journey. Others may walk a path less rocky, while you may walk a path that requires some good hiking boots. It’s okay to struggle, embrace it and conquer it.
Always remember, it’s never too late to succeed and it’s never too late to accomplish your dreams.
