Here's the deal. I created For the 20's to simply have a place to write about the books I'm reading, the thoughts I'm having, the places I'm going and so on while trying to figure out my years as a twenty-something.
That is still the point of this blog.
However, it has occurred to me that if I am so lucky, I will not always be in my twenties.
I had an unusually large quantity of alcohol this past weekend (and met an unusually large amount of puppies this past weekend).
Which isn't to say I don't usually drink - I just usually drink in a little more moderation. For both the benefit of my wallet and my body.
Yeah, a lot of posts on life lessons learned through your twenties might tell you something like - "Your hardest struggles can turn into your biggest strengths..." - But will they remind you to add water to your microwavable mac and cheese?
Oh family gatherings. Once you get a little older, all of the sudden you have to make your own path and forge a life out of an empty future and all of your relatives start to judge you on what you create. And it's crap, okay. It's crap.
Vulnerability is ultimately the birthplace of growth. But it is so insanely hard to put yourself out there. So how can you start to let yourself be vulnerable? Especially when you tend to be more introverted to begin with?
