Wow, Life Really is Beautiful (during the good and the bad)

Being a 23 year old living on her own for the first time is hard. Really hard. This season of life is full of budgeting fails, friendships that have been through hell and back, and questioning if you made the right decision (even if the decision is about what to eat for dinner).

I myself have fallen victim to the early twenties blues a few times. I have questioned my decision making, struggled with budgeting (I still do), and wondered if what I’m doing is the right thing. These moments are honestly some of the most difficult to wade through, but they are worth it. In the moment, you feel lost. You feel like there is no end to the struggle. As soon as you start to get caught up on finances, there’s another wedding to budget for or your car needs breaks. Not to mention if you say no to a night out, the FOMO hits hard. I get it, I really do.

But, I have learned to find the good within the bad. I have been blessed with a few of those friendships that I know will last a lifetime. These women I know will answer any FaceTime call and are willing to go along with my wild and crazy adventures. I have been fortunate enough to return to graduate school to become the best teacher I can be. I have a place that I call my home where beautiful memories have been made.

So, when you are starting to think that life is “bad,” take a moment to look for your good. I promise you, there is always good. You just might have to dig deep to find it.
