Let’s Talk Reality

So, it’s been about 2 weeks that I’ve haven’t an article.

I guess I’ve been conjuring up something that didn’t sound like I was complaining or missing Tennessee. It seems those have been my current trends the last couple of months.

Don’t worry – I won’t make this one of those articles that I solely focus on my feelings about moving and such. When it happens, I’ll welcome it with open arms. But, until then, I can only bask in the moment of where I am in life.

Let’s talk reality.

I just turned 27 and I feel old. I know you’ll say I’m being stupid, but it’s true. I recently began working at a local college and to think, I graduated from this college 6 years ago while people are just starting is insane! It blows my mind, but I know I’ll get there.

For some people, it takes time.

I think for my fiancé and I, it may take more time than the average person. We’re still trying to find ourselves before we have kids and move onto the next step in our lives.

“You know, people usually have a career first and then get married, but we’re doing the opposite,” said my fiancé.

Well, honestly, a year ago, we didn’t know we’d be in this situation, but we are and we now have to learn to deal with it. We need to face reality and the facts and I needed to let my old life go so I could move forward. I’m now looking toward the future and pondering where our next big move will be.

I’m more in-tune with reality and finally accepting my situation for what it is. This is something I should have done a long time ago, but it’s better late than never, huh?

I never had a stable career and neither has my fiancé.

We’ve both just had ‘jobs.’ They were temporary. Everything was temporary until we finally decided what we truly wanted to do in life, which is still in question.

There are days where I get frustrated. There are days where I just break down and cry. I cry because nothing seems to be working out. And, I’m sure everyone does that because we are all human.

I know that at 27 I didn’t expect to be living with parents, but my problem is comparing myself to others. There are people in worse positions than me and I need to realize that.

Even though this doesn’t seem like reality, it is. But, in a way, I’m glad this happened because it goes to show you that life isn’t perfect, life is full of bumps, twists and turns. And, we all need to find our way no matter how it happens.
