Thoughts on Turning 20

As of today I've been on earth for exactly two decades... It may not be a very long period of time in the grand scheme of things, but its crazy to think that I'm already halfway to forty! So, what do I feel now turning 20? 

At first it felt like a normal birthday, but as I sat down to properly think about it I realised I had a lot more thoughts about turning twenty than I initially thought. I'll try not to ramble on for too long! I may look back on this post years from now and laugh about how big of a deal I'm making about this; even though there's nothing particularly special about 20, there seems to be a strange kind of milestone. 

Birth, 10 Years Old & 20 Years Old
Mostly, I'm excited that I've grown up that little bit more, especially because twenty is the actual beginning of adulthood. But I'm definitely finding it hard to wrap my head around the fact I'm no longer a child or a teenager, and so I should know what I'm doing in life by now. It kind of feels like the excuse of ignorance has been taken away from me overnight... Sometimes I think it might be easier to go back to being a child, where everything was less of a worry and there was nothing to stress about. However, so much has changed in the last ten years, that I'm very interested to see how much changes in the next decade.

I'm excited to find and marry the love of my life, buy my first car, travel the world... There's so much more that I want to experience, and I can't wait to get started on the rest of life. I'm aiming to take more risks, be happier, step out of my comfort zone, face new challenges and let go of the past. One things for sure: I'm very thankful for my life and everything in it; I can't wait to see what the rest of my life brings.

Thank you for reading,

Let's keep in touch
