Adulting [Entry 73]

I came across a quote by Mandy Hale while I was surfing the internet sometimes ago, it says “Trust the wait; Embrace the uncertainty; enjoy the beauty of becoming, when nothing is certain, anything is possible.” Mandy Hale

“Trust the wait.” As much as I like this quote and it relates with the phase of my life right now, I don’t think I am embracing the uncertainty or enjoying the beauty of becoming. I have heard different tales about being patient and how there are times when it gets hard but one has to keep working hard and believing the Creator for a breakthrough.

I am a true believer and indeed I believe all things work together for good, but for how long do I have to wait? Most youngins are clueless, myself included. We are all just living life every day without giving much thought about tomorrow. My generation is about “living in the moment” Does this seem normal and am I wrong for wanting to grasp clarity into my future?  

What must I do to succeed! What path must I take! What can I do to differentiate myself from others! This endless list of unanswered questions I keep asking myself every day, especially when I see people around being celebrated for a new discovery. I would ask myself “what exactly am I doing with my life?” I want to be this, I want to be so many things but hey, I am here; ever battling with my fluctuating emotions because I am nowhere near where I want to be. I am always trying to figure something out but what I really want is TO FIGURE something out.  

Maybe this is all in my head or perhaps we are all just about the glam that most people have forgotten about making it big time. The problem is I can’t remember the last time I was happy, I could put on a gorgeous outfit and go out with friends, take a good picture with the caption life is good.  It is called choosing to be happy, but maybe I don’t want to choose, I want to feel pure happiness. Why is that so difficult?

This Life they say is in phases. I am at a point I know I have to make some life-changing decisions and it’s been pretty hard because most times I don’t even know what I am doing with my life.

Adulting is serious business and to those that have triumphantly passed this stage: I must commend you. I have only just started but aye it’s been tough.

  1. True say. I believe you are speaking the mind of most youth especially in Nigeria. Most people are afraid to voice it because they have either been shut up or down or they think the society will see them as weird. Good piece and very relatable. Thanks

  3. The youths really are going through a lot in terms of finding our path and paving our way unto success. The question “when will i blow?” is constantly on our minds but still we rise because we choose to each day live, and die another day.Hmm this is truly a relatable one.👊

  4. Good read.
    Most of us are here. I can’t say its completely wrong to feel this way cos sometimes we need that push. What I tell myself is I’m on a path and hope for a better tomorrow. Celebrate the little things we have…if we can so we don’t get sucked into all that anxiety and sadness.
