Mini series: What matters? 20-somethings life debates!

I love waking up on a Saturday morning and having a good catch up with friends. I am stereotypically female in the way I loooooove talking. I am seriously in a good place spending agesss talking with my friends about everything and nothing all at the same time.

This morning I was in deep convo about the flawed priorities us 20-somethings can sometimes have. Namely, me myself and I syndrome. We can be so caught up in creating the perfect lives for ourselves and instant gratification that we forget that there are bigger things in life….For some it comes as a surprise but I try to remind myself that the world does not revolve around me. Of course it does also have to be balanced with the fact ( yes I said fact), that I have a unique contribution to make to the world.

So I thought I would do a mini series on being 20-something. Reflecting on some of the things I think about. If you are an older or younger gem, please feel free to post your wisdom and insight. 

Today I am leaving on this note…Enjoy your Saturday!!!!!
