Have you ever lived without a next? No plans. No goals. No next step. As someone who lived through years of "When are you getting married?" and "You're not getting any younger!" comments, it can feel a little overwhelming. Now, recently married, the pressure has moved to other areas of life - kids,
a house, the list goes on. I felt this same pressure last year turning thirty.
Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves and even those we love to make all these things happen? Nathan is a great balance for me in this area. He's constantly bringing me back down to our reality. He's always been someone that is off beat from others around him and isn't concerned with what anyone else is doing. It's super refreshing and helps a people pleaser, like me, find balance.
I gotta say there's something so freeing about letting go of it all. As someone who loves planning and being busy, the older I get the more I realize there's no better feeling than just being. If you're one of those people who have others questioning your next step or wondering why you're at a different place than them, let it go. Maybe you're the one putting the pressure on yourself. Stop! I'd love for you to challenge yourself this summer to be free. Forget about a next and live for the moment.
Live where the wind takes you!
