Dear 20-Something, An Open Letter.

Dear 20-Something,

I know right now it seems like the world is moving faster than you can run, and everyone has it figured out but you. I know those around you are doing big things- getting the job, getting married, having babies (on purpose!), buying a house, etc. And maybe you’re doing all of that too! But also, maybe you’re not. Maybe you’re working at a job that you need to do until you are able to achieve what you want to do. Maybe you’re living with your family. Maybe you have 5 roommates and a job that barely covers rent. Maybe you’re a month so or behind on that rent…

No matter what your accomplishments or definition of success, I have a secret to tell you-

It’s ok to be lost.

It’s ok to feel like the world is spinning around while you’re standing still.
It’s ok to feel like you’re running and working twice as hard- just to not even get half as much.
And it’s ok to feel like you have it all figured out.

I have another secret to let you in on-

It’s ok to be exactly where you are.
I know a lot of times, especially as women, it’s easy to feel as though we are lost or just faking it and that any moment now someone will find out.
Someone might find out you don’t know what you’re doing.

Someone might figure out that you’re a fraud.

But let me tell you something.
If you are doing your own thing, following your path, doing what you have to do on a daily basis-

You’re not a fraud or a fake.
You’re doing it, babe!

And from where I’m sitting,
you’re doing a darn good job at it too.

Oh, and in case no one has told you yet, your hair looks great today.

Feel free to bookmark this page in case you ever forget that and need to come back so I can tell you how awesome you are! Also, pin the following image so you can save it to your boards!
