Growing Pains

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…who knew Dickens was writing about my 20s?

A seemingly endless plight of foolishness filled with the highest highs and the lowest lows. Perhaps this is the common path to self discovery. Often more painful than joyful.

Who am I? What do I want? Where am I going?

After beating my head against the wall of anxiety of the last few years, it’s finally starting to sink in that the answers can only be found from the drudgery of existing every day. Moving forward is key, I think, saying yes more often than no.

This growing up thing…it is a well worn path that everyone must travel, but the steps aren’t familiar to me. I see no strong footholds, only pebbles that shift with my weight. Who am I? What do I want? Where am I going?

I feel like I need time to slow down, but all at once I want to race ahead to something better. (Please say there’s something better.)

Today I want to strike out on a grand adventure. Tomorrow I won’t want to leave my room.

It’s an interesting time, these 20s.

But, I am learning. And I am growing. And I am full of potential.

Who am I? What do I want? Where am I going?

I don’t know, but I’m getting there.
