Dear 20 something year old.




I know how you’re feeling. It seems like life is pulling you in a tug a war. On the one hand, you feel like you need to have a plan and everything figured out like Right now. You are feeling the weight of every decision you are making, as though you only have one shot. As though you aren’t learning. And on the other hand, you feel like you should be able to do whatever you want, I mean we are still young right? If you are single, you may be longing to get married and settle into your career and maybe start a family. You are desperately looking for your person. You are continually swiping left and right on dating apps trying to find the one. If you are married with kids, you may feel like you are too young for this measure of responsibility. You may be feeling like you are still just a kid yourself as you are in the middle of finding who you were created to be. In the meantime, still having to show up and be present, while God is healing some deep wounds. Some of these wounds have been exposed because of marriage and parenthood. Maybe you are in a space where you are working a job that has nothing to do with your area of passion. So you are feeling like you are only just going through the motions, so your bills are paid. You may find yourself mourning your childhood and the good old days when you left the lights on rooms you weren’t in, you threw away leftovers, and you never really paid attention to the first of the month until now because of BILLS. You may find that relationships are super complicated, and some require more work than you want to give. You may find that you are outgrowing people and spaces you thought were going to be around forever. Maybe you have no idea what you want to do in life, so you are just taking each day as it comes. I wish this blog had been written to give you the perfect solution, but it’s not. I am writing this to tell you first of all you are not alone. There is a whole generation of us dealing with some of these real moments that feel never-ending. This season that you are in is just that, A SEASON. So, 1. Learn everything you need to learn. 2. Be present in the emotions, feel the hurt/pain then give it to God. Let him heal you and move on. 3. STOP comparing yourself to others. 4. Give yourself grace, you are learning, and you’ve never been here before. And lastly, 5. Trust that God is in absolute control of your life and that he knows the plans he has for you, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 Dear 20 something year old, be encouraged this too shall pass. Graycefully, Sabrina🖤
