“We’re all trying, we’re all changing, we’re all learning, we’re all growing. So, we’ll keep on stumbling together.”

My friends and I are entering our mid-20’s and struggling to navigate. None of us are married. None of us have children and many of us live at home. We work – but most of us are not in our ‘careers’, yet.

We may be adults in every legal sense of the word, but we don’t feel like adults.

BEING Young & Twenty is equal parts terrifying and liberating.

Some days, I feel like I’m moving in slow-motion – falling further behind.

I have goals, but I’m not always sure how I’m going to make them happen.

The uncertainties can be overwhelming.

I’m often reminded of how beautiful and rewarding, our 20’s is.

We’re not tied down. We can do anything we want. We can be anything we want. And while we stumble along the way, we learn something new about ourselves.

I have no idea what I’m doing the majority of the time. I don’t have any concrete answers but, no one does. We’re all lost and confused. We’re all trying, we’re all changing, we’re all learning, we’re all growing. So, we’ll keep on stumbling together. As long as we keep moving, we won’t fall.
