“While you’re trying to focus on building your career, you also need to focus on relationships, friendships, personal development and maybe starting a family.”

BEING Young & Twenty means a decade full of exploration.

Of yourself, love life, self-esteem, goals, health, and a big part is your career.

Finding your way through life and into a career you enjoy can be difficult for any 20-something. You pick your school major around 16 and expect your life and goals to stay on that path. In reality, it took me 3 career changes to realize my true passion, and I can only hope I’ve finally landed.

Many of us in our 20’s will never really be satisfied with where we land.

While you’re trying to focus on building your career, you also need to focus on relationships, friendships, personal development and maybe starting a family. I think I’ll save that last one for my 30’s though!

Finding any job is hard enough, so it may take some time to find and secure that dream job.

Hopefully, you are lucky enough to be able to figure out what that true passion is. Your career will take up more time out of your life than anything, but you need to ensure to find a good balance for you.

On this journey, you should fully experience and be happy with whatever stage you are at, even if it’s not your final destination. Make some great friends at work, discover yourself, and get networking. Take advantage of the experience that you do gain and see what the next stage of your life brings you. Don’t give up on finding your own dreams and passions, but don’t be hard on yourself if it takes time.

Enjoy BEING Young & Twenty!

But don’t forget that your 20’s are not the only time to be young and fabulous. Continue to explore whatever life has to offer you both professionally and personally.
