First blog post

So… Here I am! After randomly deciding to join the blogging world, I find myself writing my first post.  I’d never considered blogging as a way of expressing and networking, but after many colourful life experiences I’d like to share them with you and bring hope and comfort to any of you struggling to find yourselves in the beautiful decade of your twenties.

As you can see from my bio, I have two degrees, neither of which were an easy task! I was also balancing full time employment, and relationships … and one almost marriage (We can get to that later).  Life is what you make it and I tend to make mine quite complicated, for no particular reason and I’m not entirely sure that I realise I’m doing it.  I’m just in such a hurry to get through this part of my life, to the ‘good stuff’.  You know, the forever job, forever man, forever house, the 3 kids and a dog.  I often fail to realise that by doing this I am wasting the best years of my life, wishing I was somewhere else … Will that find me long term happiness? Probably not!

The beauty of your twenties is that these are things that are to be figured out.  If you do something wrong the first time, try again but get it right the second time around.  React differently, sit back and think, if I do it this way, what might happen.  We’re all guilty of trying to rush and messing something up completely. So my advice for today is … What happens today, can affect tomorrow, be calm, take your time, and don’t rush.
