As We Go

As We Go

It’s interesting to think about how one day, in 50 years, we’re going to look at these insignificant times in our lives and just laugh. I’ll say:

“Remember that time my heart got broken? I thought it was the end of the world! If only you knew where you’d be right now.”

“Remember when that guy tried to steal my undies?”
– Wait, wait. I’m actually laughing about that now.

“Remember when I didn’t know what I was going to be doing with my life or where I was going to be?”

I think about it all the time. How one day, I’m going to have this entirely different outlook on life. I’ll still be the same old Lara, just with a more crystallized intelligence. I already feel a certain kind of wisdom I didn’t have a few years ago. Our minds become such powerful tools if we let them grow intellectually and spiritually. We start to know ourselves better. I remember being 14 and not knowing who I was at all. Hell, I remember being 18 and not knowing who I was, then either. But now, at 25, I’m starting to see a more clear picture of the person I’m becoming.

Strong.

Loving.

Powerful.

Spiritual.

Giving.

And most importantly, destined for greatness.

I don’t think it’s conceded to think of yourself so highly. I think it’s empowering. I’m most certainly not perfect-and I have a lot more to learn. But since I’ve blindly crept into adulthood, I’ve recognized my potential.

Sometimes getting older scares me. Sometimes I really wish I could just stay in these moments forever. But I know there’s more. At 25, our being has barely scratched the surface of living. And I kind of can’t wait to delve in. Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen because if you do, something most certainly will.

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one remembers to turn on the light.”

  1. I enjoyed my twenties way more than my teenage years. Despite the past few months, I’ve enjoyed my thirties (so far) more than my twenties. I think as you get to know yourself better, everything improves. x

    1. I think so too! Even though life seems to get harder as I get older, I still prefer it over my younger years. Maybe it’s because life is meant to get harder, but we are also meant to get stronger-so it all evens out.

  2. Great post, and so true. I feel this way just looking back at a few years ago. Geeze– even a few months ago. Everyone idealizes the 20s but I have to say… Every year since 23 has only been better than the last (despite the mass of drauma and awkward trauma). So the future is looking pretty bright.

    1. Yes, exactly! As I was telling aprileb, I feel like even though life becomes more complex, we grow so much and get so much stronger. So those complexities become lessons and learning experiences and make us even stronger and more able to deal with the next hurdle.

  3. “And most importantly, destined for greatness.” — perfect. Self-belief is far from conceit – its an absolute requirement for achieving most of the important things in life. Especially those related to your career – decisiveness, acting with confidence and assuredness are crucial to advancement.
