Looking Ahead With Lauren: Take Chances


This is currently my favorite quote. I don’t know who said it, but I’m trying to live my life based on what they said. As I’m growing up and learning and changing, I’m trying to take more chances and be the best person I can be. I think back to my childhood and my middle school and high school self. I didn’t take a whole lot of chances. When I did, I often felt rejected so I held back even more.

So I have to say my twenties have been the best yet. Sure, there have been plenty of mistakes and heartbreak but I feel much more open to new experiences and more accepting of myself. I’m happy with the person I am becoming, even if I’m not happy every day. This quote means a lot to me lately because I recently went through a breakup. A breakup that was my choice, but one I am still trying to wrap my mind around and figure out what I want. I’m learning to be honest with my feelings and know that it is okay to want more out of life. To accept that maybe in this time of my life, when all my friends are hearing wedding bells, I want to feel first date jitters.

Its okay to not know where you’re going in life. At this point in my life, I don’t know what type of job I may have in five years. I don’t know who I’ll be with in five years. And that’s okay. For now, I’m just enjoying the ride.
