As young adults, this time is ours. We have finally got to the point in life we've wanted throughout our childhood. We're finally legally adults (even though we often still act like kids) and this is our time. We've finally reached the time in our lives when we can do whatever we want. A time we've all wanted for so long. So much freedom (that gets some, well most of us into trouble at times). Like many things in life, the beginning of this time period is the best. Do everything and anything you want to do. This time doesn't last long, and our time is now.
Enjoy life a little more.
Appreciate the smallest things, because they're important. Watch the sun rise and set. Enjoy the presence of others, even if they're strangers. Appreciate how beautiful life truly is. Spend time with friends, capture memories. Notice others who don't have families, and appreciate yours a little more.
Do what you enjoy doing.
Don't do things because your friends want you to, or because your parents want you to, or because anyone wants you to. Do what you enjoy doing. Go to college and study a major that you love, or work in the profession you're passionate about. Figure yourself out. Don't let someone decide who you are.
This is the time of trial and error.
Growing up you make mistakes. You may end up hating the job you thought you loved or the major you're studying. That's okay. This is the perfect time to figure that out. Being let out into the world lets you discover who you are and what you want to do in life. If you don't know right off, that's okay too. You have time. You have all the time in the world. It isn't a race. You're not in competition with old high school classmates anymore, or other college students, or your parents, or your friends. It isn't a race to get a good job and have a house, family, and life. Enjoy this almost carefree time.
Enjoy your youth.
Though we're technically adults now, don't forget to enjoy the small amount of youth you have left. This time goes fast. Enjoy it. Go to parties. Spend all night at the beach with your best friends. Stay out late with friends when you have to work in the morning. Don't work your life away now. You have the rest of your life to work. Work enough to pay the bills. Live a little more, and work a little less. There is nothing you'll regret more than not being able to enjoy this time because you completely worked it away.
Do things out of impulse. Go on a random shopping spree. Buy that expensive watch, just because you want it. Take a last minute road trip to somewhere you've never been. Go sky diving. Make a bucket list and do every single thing on it, all of the crazy ideas you've ever had. Make it happen. Make memories. Do crazy things. You'll thank me one day.
Don't grow up too fast. Enjoy every last minute of these few years. Live. This is our time. Embrace it.
