At 26, I was the best kind of confused. I was emotionally and mentally spent, physically vulnerable, and socially inept. I quit my six-year-old job, and for the first time in my life, I didn’t have a plan. Everyone, especially the people who are close to me, thought it was madness. I was always the girl who knew exactly what she wants from life and goes for it. But at 26, all I really wanted was to… Well, I just wanted to take a break from adulthood! I basically overthought things and it drained the hell out of me! I grew tired trying to take control and convincing myself that I can drag my feet one more day.
Admit it, if you’ve got bills to pay, you don’t have the right to complain and quit! But, I lost the fire in me. On top of my health challenges, I was emotionally drained, too. I was convinced I needed to change my direction.
I was ready to face the unknown, albeit I was practically clueless as to where I was headed. But (even this surprised me) I was completely fine with getting lost.
I embraced the fact that I will disappoint a lot of people, even those who are dear to me. I acknowledged that it will be uncomfortable, bothersome even. And it dawned on me that some people will never understand why I chose to chart an unfamiliar, unconventional territory. But, while these things were difficult to swallow, I courageously faced it because I know they are essential for my growth.
I didn’t dodge the “process”, I went through it. It required a lot of goodbyes and uncomfortable (sometimes even awkward) situations, but I learned a lot. At 26, I was struggling. But, I gained 26 beautiful lessons from the hurdles, too. And I know that my 27-year-old self will be grateful for these things as I move forward. So, here they are, and I hope you can pick something valuable from what I have learned, too:
27-year-old life, how else can you surprise me? Quota na ko sa challenges this year, baka naman may chance na all is well tayo this time? Aaaaahhh!!! Lord, bahala ka na po sa akin. Just praying for a more resilient soul to weather all the storms life throws my way.
