I am 25 years old and I’ve had the same damn hair and clothes style since I was a teen. But, as scary as it is, I’m an adult and things must change. I’m not a fan of change, but sometimes it can be a good thing. I mean, I moved, which was a huge change and I’m coping surprisingly well thus far.
In the next few weeks, I plan to alter my appearance a bit because sometimes when I look in the mirror, instead of seeing an adult, the reflection staring back at me is a little girl. I cannot stay that way for the rest of life, there comes a time when everyone needs to grow-up and my time is now. I know it can be quite daunting to take on more responsibility, but my boyfriend is right there with me having to do the same thing. He’s been the one coaching me through this transition and without him, I’d be lost.
At times, I get annoyed that I’m so afraid to get a new wardrobe and switch up my hairstyle. What am I so scared of? It’s time to finally be an adult as well as look like an adult. I’ve done a big thing by moving 800 + miles away. That is terrifying in itself and I made the decision and wouldn’t change it for the world. But, I still do not feel as if it’s real. This morning, I woke up questioning whether I was dreaming or not.
In the past few months, things have rapidly changed and I must keep up with it. If you’re skeptical about altering something about your life whether its your appearance, location or style, I say do it and do not look back. Don’t think too much or else you’ll chicken out. I encourage you to chase after your dreams and if something feels boring, travel on a different path. It’s time for to stop being a scaredy cat and just take the leap.
