You look at my life and you see a big, sloppy mess! I look at my life and see a perfectly imperfect, organized dysfunction. But it all somehow still works.
You look at me and see a young woman who is far too young to have her life figured out, let alone put together! Though a part of this may be true, I'm not too young to not know what I want. Or go after it!
Yes, I am aware that you think you have everything figured out for yourself. I respect your thoughts and I respect how you live your life.
In all honesty, I'm happy for you. I'm happy that you have found goodness and purpose on your journey of life. What doesn't make me happy though, and what I cannot respect are your many opinions on MY life. Extra emphasis on the "MY."
I am young. I have a lot of living to do before I settle down my wild soul and find a consistent, steady way of living! I'm young, it is my time to live.
It is my time to make mistakes and mess up big! I don't have too force myself to grow up too soon in order to please others. I'm working hard to support myself and follow my dreams.
You may think I need to "slow down," but I'm sorry I'm not slowing down anytime soon. I mean, why should I?
It's not anyone else's life to live. It's my own. So why should I waste my own time trying to be a perfectly molded woman for the world to put on a pedestal?
When I'm not perfect and never want to be. I find happiness in adventure. And peace in having the freedom to roam freely. I'm able to explore the world around me and travel to new and exciting places, without being tied down to anyone or anything. That's the way I like it to be.
You don't have to agree with my way of life. You don't even have to support what I choose to do with it. Truthfully, I could careless. I may behave a little reckless at times, and I have my rough moments. But overall, life is good and I'm happy. And that's what matters.
So you can continue to drown me with your opinions. You can shut down my dreams and tell me that they'll never happen. I don't care. I'm following my heart wherever it may lead me and I won't stop walking in my sunshine anytime soon. Not for you at least.
