Let’s talk adulthood! On the 24th September of this month, I shall be turning 18 years old!!
It is a time of celebration and excitement for the future. At 18, there are no limits to what I can do and what I can become.
On the other hand, I am also apprehensive about turning 18 years old and all the scary things in adulthood that I shall have to face at some point.
Ironically, the excting plans that I am looking forward to are also the same things that I am fearful for- Every person becomes fearful of the future because they do not want to waste their life and wants to be happy. Everyone wants to think back on their life when their time is ending and think ‘My life was great. I used it well.’
Some of my aims for adulthood include completing an English Literature degree, teaching young people and adults, having my own children, and making a difference to other people’s lives.
What goals do the rest of you have? What do you hope to gain out of life? It doesn’t matter how old you are or if you are or are not reaching a milestone, it would be interesting to know what other people’s hopes and dreams are!
I look forward to hearing them and hopefully my worries about adulthood will start to disappear when I start experiencing adulthood in late September. Much love. ❤
