Nothing says – I’m in my twenties – quite like a good ole fashioned panic attack about your life choices and the fact that every move you make is extremely critical to what path you’re going to do go down for the next 5 to 10 years but I mean it’s whatever.

Want to know something comical? I used to fully believe that I could plan out every step of my life. I was that girl who thought that since she followed the rules and hung on to the last breath of everyone else’s advice that everything would turn out picture perfect in the blink of an eye.
“When you make plans God laughs.”
Heartbreaks. Dead end jobs. Overdrawn bank accounts. The world breathing down your neck. Mouthing WTF to yourself 15 times a day. Fluctuating jean size.
Hello twenty something life.
I feel a lot of you come to my page for a slice of motivation that gets you pumped up to hustle or there are those of you that skim these blog posts for a paragraph or even one simple word to jump off the page that resonates deeply with you. In all honesty, this piece doesn’t hold either of those elements. If I knew the secret to this rollercoaster ride or could look into a crystal ball then girlfriend, I would be sitting pretty on a yacht right now instead of having a mental breakdown.
When you’re having those life moments when you feel as though shit is hitting the fan, know that you have a friend in me. Oh God Chelsea, how corny can you be? I know I know but I’m being serious. There is nothing worse than feeling like you are alone in something so let this post serve as your daily reminder that you are never alone, ever.
I read something online the other day that I wanted to share with you in hopes that it will give you an extra UMPH in times of wanting to bang your head against the keyboard or call your mom bawling your eyes out like a two-year-old who stubbed their toe.
“My advice to young people is don’t take any advice. Don’t listen to anyone. F!*k the system, f@&k the rules, make it up as you go along – don’t copy what anyone else does, follow your heart, follow your dreams and eventually you will wake up and you’ll look back at your work and you’ll realize that what you did was honest to yourself.”
I’m right there with you,
