Here I am, wide awake, at 2:33 in the morning. I have a lot of things on my mind. For starters, I'm turning 25 this year!! When I was younger, I always used to say that I wanted to get married by the time I was 26. I don't think that's gonna happen and I actually really don't care anymore. I decided that I would be ok if I never got married. I don't need to rely on someone or a stage in life for happiness. I always dreamed of getting married, but that's no longer my goal in life. Of course I would love to have children, but you don't have to be married to have a kid or to raise one (adoption etc). It's a little harder to do it all on your own, but its not impossible. I'm not gonna get into that, but, sometimes you just have to learn to not have a plan or expected timeline for your life. When I started college, I expected myself to graduate in four years. That totally didn't happen and it's okay. Everybody has their own path and you don't have to copy theirs or live up to people's expectations. I think a lot of people my age see that our peers are engaged, married or have kids and they feel bad that they aren't in either one of those situations. Sometimes you just need to let it go and realize that things will start happening when you least expect them to. Everything happens for a reason and our time will come one day. Live in the present and enjoy your life.
