This might be such a Millennial thought- but grinding one thing at a time is hard for us. We are the generation of instant gratification, so if something isn’t giving us what we want or “need” at the moment we are quick to move on to the next thing, all in hopes that the change will fulfill us. And I’m all about change, trust me, I haven’t lived in one place for THAT long before wanting to move again. Yet, I have come to understand that humans might benefit from doing or being something for a longer-than-usual period of time.
Yesterday I received an email from my alma mater asking me to fill out a survey regarding my existence post-graduation. My shock didn’t come from realizing I haven’t really found a job I loved, but the part that read -“since your graduation six months ago…”- what?! Time is so inconspicuous, I wonder if my body has kept up with the fact that I am now (or at least, I should be) almost 23 years old.
For the past few months, I have been immersing myself in trying to figure out my life; where I want to go, how I will get there, and most importantly, who I want to become. When people get too overwhelmed with their routines, they stop doing what they love and need the most, which for me is writing.
