It's OKAY Not To Know It All

Being in your twenties and wanting your dreams to happen over night is like waiting for that one guy or girl to text you back. It won’t happen.

It's OKAY Not To Know It All
Taylor Eastwood

Figuring out life, at any age, can be one of the most challenging trials it may throw at you. Doing all of this in your twenties is just the icing on the cake. Most of us are Most of us have graduated or are just graduating college, searching for our “forever” career, getting engaged or un-engaged, dating, or you’re just twenty-four and single, still confused as to what to do with your life.

The amounts of pressure twenty-something year olds have in this day is unreal. There is pressure to find your dream job, settle down, have children and make loads of money because we all know that “buys” happiness. Or at least that is what some think.

We are constantly on social media comparing our lives to others; the way we act, what we wear, our relationships, jobs and definitely the way we look. Scrolling through Instagram, constantly saying, “I wish I had this or looked like that” has become the norm. We all do it.

As you’re doing your daily comparison on social media, remind yourself just how easy it is to put on a show for viewers out there. Meaning, it may seem as if that person has the ideal relationship, perfect job, great body and perhaps they do, yet, there is more to the story than you see.

The eagerness of wanting it all to happen and happen now is what lands us in those relationships we're not truly thrilled with, the job that doesn't serve purpose for our future and rash decisions we later may regret.

Truthfully, it is okay not to have all of the answers right now. Being in your twenties and wanting your goals/dreams to happen over night is like waiting for that one guy or girl to text you back. It won’t happen.

If it were meant to be easy, there would be no thrill in chasing after those dreams you so desperately want. You may go through five jobs before landing that dream job. There will be a day you get to where you need to be, however, chill out and allow your story to unfold, as it should.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
