There are many aspects to a happy and healthy life than just exercising and eating vegetables. Relationships, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. I really believe in this and take a holistic approach to living a healthy lifestyle.
After a summer of serious soul searching, I found myself questioning what I really wanted out of my life and what it was that I truly enjoy. Do I just wanna get a "job" and drag myself out of bed every morning and look forward to 5pm to go home? Everyday, for the rest of my life? Have you ever felt that way? So, it turns out there's actually a very popular phenomena called quarter life crisis, the 20 something version of a midlife crisis.
Are you having a Quarter life crisis?
"If you’re somewhere between your mid twenties and thirties, you might be experiencing a serious low point in your life. A period of confused identity, misguided purpose, and hopeless transition. You feel lost, anxious, and panicked."
So, I'm here to say you are not out of your mind! What you're going through is very normal. And you are certainly NOT alone. Millions of successful and happy people go through this phase every year. Good news is there are plenty of ways to go through this trial and just make it a little easier to cope with.
Do the work that comes from your heart.
I was just thinking about this, and wanted to share a quote I find helpful in easing my mind: "Don’t be scared to switch paths or pave a new one. Do the work that comes from your heart! Remember, it’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t."
Reading this was just so empowering and I felt like I wasn't alone in this, you know. Maybe I wasn't crazy and my feelings were real and valid!
