Your twenties are said to be some of your best years. Because why not?? You’re young, have a life full of possibilities and plus you don’t have that many crazy responsibilities or aren’t tied down yet. So why do we use these years, searching for that ONE thing.. Love?
I have been single for almost a year and a half now and I am the happiest I have ever been. But not because I found someone new and I am in love, but because I am finally getting to do things in my life that make me the happiest. I am finally finding out the person I want to be.
However, if you told me a year ago that this would be the reason of my happiness, I would say you were crazy. Because honestly.. Today in this society, many people would classify happiness to be the result of either you are in love or just won the lottery. Because there is no way you can happy without money or love in your life. As people would say.
“Your twenties are said to be some of your best years.”
Please raise your hand if you have ever been victimized by your parents, grandparents or friends… by them asking if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend yet? You’d be lying if you didn’t raise your hand. Seriously.. this is my MOST hated question during the holidays or at any social gathering. WHY is this asked so much?! Why can’t I be asked “So Mykenna, how happy have you been since getting rid of that guy?” because THAT’S a question, I’d respond to.
I’ve been told by women from ages anywhere from mid-twenties to 50, saying they wish they were 20 again. That they wish they could live their lives through mine. For example one time this lady said to me “Don’t get me wrong, I love my life and how it planned out. But if I could go back to my early twenties, I wish I focused more on me”
“Because honestly.. Today in this society, many people would classify happiness to be the result of either you are in love or just won the lottery.”
Another piece of advice I received after my break up last year and honestly probably one of the best things someone has ever said to me was. “Mykenna think of this next chapter of your life as a blessing”
Being told by both these women that you should use your early twenties for self-growth , has made me view my life is such a different perspective. Because the truth is.. love and wealth can wait and WILL happen, but you’ll never get the chance to be under 25 years old again.
“Think of this next chapter of your life as a blessing”
So if you are single and under 25 and think that love or wealth will make you happy? Think again! Focus on you and do things that you love, and I promise you.. happiness with come your way!
