I’ve been seeing some pretty heavy quotes lately that have resonated with me deeply. This quote pretty much stopped me in my tracks when I saw it.
“Lots of women are on that too young to be rushing things, but too old to be wasting time mentality. Take a step back. Society puts age limits on certain experiences but what if you just let yourself live instead of always rushing to meet an imaginary deadline.”
Whew. Like I said, it stopped me in my tracks. For the last couple of months I’ve been letting societies deadlines consume me. Truth is I’m exhausted. I’m tired of feeling all of this pressure bc I “should” be at a certain place by now or that I “should” be married or “should” be a mother by now.
My motto for the year is to not put any limitations on God. I’m also going to stop trying to meet deadlines that society says I should have for myself. I’m taking the pressure off and allowing myself to live...because I have a lot more LIVING to do in this here life of mine. Period.
