So this week I wanted to challenge myself and see if I can actually come up with some good advice to this girl right here….(don’t ya’ll judge me I was 21 lol) I also want to challenge you all to write a letter to you at 21 and give yourself one piece of advice in the comments!
So at 31 years old I have learned so many lessons, lost friends, grew up, and gained lessons. So I sat down and thought to myself what would I tell my 21-year-old self about being 31 and getting through everything that I’ve dealt with. Also, I thought I would share it with you all. Because at whatever age you are what is one thing you would say to yourself ten years ago?
So here is what I would tell the 21-year-old Phe…
So hey it’s me (lol) I am now 31 working a full-time job, and attempting this blogging thing WHICH I LOVE!!! Madisyn is about to be 12 years old next week, and school is starting next week. You have found a new found love for blogging; you are making amazing connections with some amazing women that are either bloggers or bloggers. Recently you’ve been thinking about a way to become a full-time blogger and monetize your blog to do so. When you think about blogging at the age, you are now do that shit! You are an amazing writer, and this is something you love to do!
At this time, you have been single for four years, and you recently decided to hop back into the dating world. It is one of the weirdest things ever because of course, you’re awkward. But being awkward is the new black, right? Doesn’t matter you have become a motivating fierce person and you will love the person you will become at 31. You have learned to speak up more and be a more motivating person. You’ve discovered a few tips and tricks on your own that with push you to be amazing. Do whatever you want and live how you want. There will be some down moments that will help you as a blogger and bring awareness to two topics that are close to your heart; you just have been diagnosed yet. You have endometriosis which you’ll find out at 28 you feel a little let down about it because it’s slightly harder for you to have a kid, but you’re still on the whole “my sister has enough kids for the both of us” ride. (LOL)
At 30 years old you will lose a great job but will discover that the job was not for you and will find you love for blogging. There is a downside for about 6 months you will go through a dark phase of depression, you don’t want to talk to anyone about it, you cry yourself to sleep at night because you feel like it’s the end of the world, you also pray to God to show you where your life is going and boy did he!
You are good at this blogging shit girl you have so many networking opportunities and such supportive friends. Yes, you’re still single but who is worried about that because I am sure as hell not. Take it one day at a time there will be days when you feel like you don’t know what to do. You have an amazing support system from your amazing parents to your sisters, your cousins, and your dope friends I can go on forever. Be the best you when you can, you will fall and get right back up and walk it off. You will be happy, and that is the best place to be.
Okay, ladies, now in the comments what is some of the best advice you can tell your 21-year-old self right now? Let me know in the comments!!!!!!
