This is a quote from an article titled, "What to Know at 25(ish)", by Shauna Nequist found on A well traveled woman. I was so happy to read this quote/article because it was another way for me to feel secure with the decision I made at 24: leave the job I was unhappy with and for the first time realize that I have time to figure it all out. The next few years will be spent reading, traveling, being inspired, cooking, learning and doing all things that my heart desires.

Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path
