Reasons why it's okay not to have everything figured out

 Well hello to you my reader chums! Life is full of pressures and expectations from what is the 'societal norm' to the pressures we put on ourselves. Being in my twenties, it's a weird decade where everyone I know is at different stages in their lives and we're constantly comparing ourselves - and really, it's unnecessary. Everyone has different paths and I think many of us often forget that.

Reasons why it's okay not to have everything figured out

If you're feeling a little lost at the minute, here are a few reasons why it's okay not to have everything figured out.

Everyone's chapter is different

We're all on this crazy journey called life and I think what a lot of us often forget is that everyone's chapters are different. Stop comparing your chapter one to somebody's chapter five. We all work at different paces, we all have different goals and priorities and we're all unique in every way. Nobody's time scale is the same. If you're sitting there feeling a bit lost about where you're at and where you're going, just remember that your time will come. I can assure you nobody really has everything figured out, even those who seem ahead in life have their woes and stresses about where they should be as we all have different expectations.

You're growing and evolving every day

We all change every single day. Change is part of life and so is growth. Growing and evolving is the most important part of our day-to-day as we want to change, we want to learn from our past experiences and live a better, and more fulfilled everyday life. When these feelings hit of being lost and like you're not sure where you should be, know it'll come with time. That's the whole point in growing and evolving - we're forming into the people we are destined to be, and with that, the right opportunities will come your way.

We all have ups and downs

Nobody is happy all the time. I think a lot of us expect happiness to be an everyday occurrence, however, we all have ups and downs, even the happiest of individuals. Once you come to realise this fact, you'll find yourself comparing less and feeling more assurance in knowing you don't have everything figured out - because many people are in a similar boat. It's part of life to ride a rollercoaster and experience incredible highs and life-changing lows.

Life is a journey, not a final destination

This may sound a little cliche and cheesy, however, it really is something I've learnt and embraced as I've got older. Every day is different. Life is about constantly learning new things and using those things to push us forward in our goals and plans. The journey can be hard but with time, things always improve. And even though we all have our final goals, once you reach them, there will always be more things you want to do so there's no point in rushing. Life is a journey to work at your own pace and ensure you're doing the things that make your heart soar.

You're doing the best you can

This point is important for all of us to hear, time and time again, especially if you're feeling lost and low. You're doing your best and that's all you can ever want and everyone around you too. If you're trying your best, then you should try to worry less as you're given all you've got. You're incredible in every way and it's okay not to have everything figured out. You will find your way.
