                                       every. single. day.

Hey! I’m 20 Something.

So I’m 23. I’m at the lower end of the 20 something spectrum… So, I know 3 years worth of “20 SOMETHING year old wisdom”

               Now, I could just be talking about myself… but as a 23 year old, I am awkward, I have the weirdest thought process, and I like laughing… like A LOT! OH! And I’m SINGLE! That's the word of the century! Everyone seems to be single! All the 20 somethings are single… and the Men are just standing around clueless! I just want to scream at them and say “HELLO, I"M BEAUTIFUL  AND SINGLE! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!??”  I know that its not just me who feels this way!! RIGHT!!??
But then again, I don't just want any guy... I want THE guy. The guy who is perfect FOR ME. The guy who LOVES GOD more than he loves anything else. The guy who falls in love with all the weird things about me. The guy who accepts who I am... ALL of who I am. He is out there... I have to be honest, it seems like he is NEVER GOING TO COME... But I have to have faith. I know he is coming. 

Meanwhile, I am living my life the best way that I can. I' m getting to know myself and getting to know my Creator more and more. I'm allowing God to change me so that I can be the best OLIVIA for my future life. Lets not focus on the things that we don't have, lets focus on the things that we do have like, Family, Friends, Love, Jesus, Happiness etc. Live for today... don't have to regret the past in your future! BE YOURSELF! DON'T LET ANYONE CHANGE YOU EXCEPT FOR JESUS!  

                AND PLEASE BE CONFIDENT!!  BE CONFIDENT with your looks and body types! Accept who you are, embrace it and move on! Be comfortable saying that your beautiful!  (I’m also talking to myself) I can be honest, its hard to let go of things like insecurities and fear… but its time! Let Go!! Let Go and be 20 Something!! THE BEST 20 SOMETHING YOU CAN BE!

"The Plan"

Master plan
When I was entering my twenty's (7 years ago), I had this mind set that everything will automatically, by itself, fall into place. For some reason I thought I would magically have the life that I wanted. My own place, a boyfriend, a car, lots and lots of money and of course a job that I wouldn't really have to work for. I felt like being 20 was this MAGIC age where all my dreams and wishes would come true. Little did I know that I would actually have to grow up, become responsible and be accountable for the choices that would make. I was the type of person that would be ok with just breezing my way through life; I was ok with doing the bare minimum.
When I was 21 or 22 I remember telling my family my "Plan". The plan was that I would  be married by the time I was 25, have 3-5 kids by the time I was 30, and be done. Ummmm.... no that didn't happen at all. I thought that maybe, just maybe I could some how control being married by 25 and have children. I would ask myself often, "How can I make this happen?" 25 was only 3-4 years away!! I can totally do this! Ill find a guy who has the same goals as me, kind of slip in my "plan" to him while we are talking and getting to know each other (because girls we all know that we tell the dudes our "plan" in a very stealthy cute way) and voila!! i'm married at 25 and i'm having kids. Here's the thing, my reality set in and none of that happened. One important thing I did not do was ask God if he was ok with this plan I had set out for my life. Sadly enough I was upset when God didn't listen to the plan I had for me. In the midst of me trying to make all these things happen, I was forgetting who sets my life up. It says in Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) says,  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. There it is! God plans to give me hope and a future?!! how fantastic.  Because God is so awesome and patient with us, he allows us to seek things for ourselves so we can lean on him. I can't lean on my own understanding for one second because it only leads to disappointment. Although my "plan" didn't come true, my trust in God grew and I knew that he had something greater planned for me than what I could ever imagine.
With all that being said, I want to know what your "Plans" were when you entered your twenty's. Did something amazing happen to you? What did you realize? Or what have you realized so far?
I would love to hear from you and remember sharing is caring!! So let your friends know about this blog!
God Bless!

Welcome to my very truthful, thoughtful and fun blog for us who are in our TWENTY'S! The reason why I decided to have blog strictly for us 20 SOMETHINGS is because I want to talk about real life issues and thoughts that we face while in our twenty's. This blog will also be fun! because we should embrace life and be thankful for what God has given us! I am currently 26 about to become the wonderful age of 27 which means I have 3 years until I enter my thirty's (ahhhh!!). I do have an awesome sister who just turned 23 and she will be entering some posts on here as well. Everything on this blog will be christian based and reflect my LOVE for Jesus Christ. I hope that whoever reads this will enjoy it and share it!
God Bless
