Not everything you do in your twenties has to have gravity. You’re twenty. Go ahead. There’s a whole lot of future ahead of you. Don’t take yourselves too seriously.

#77

Don’t make your ambitions small. Just ask for the world and see what comes your way. You don’t need to be modest in your desires.

#76

Don’t live your life on a default setting. Everything is a choice.

Your own needs. 

If you wake up saying, “What is it I need today?” How radical is that compared to “what do I have to do today?“ You will always have something to do. But what if you actually say, “What do I need?” Maybe what you need is 30 minutes by yourself or a bath. But women don’t take that seriously. Women don’t say that should be a priority. It should be.

Time to explore the gaps. 

Pay attention to the gaps. There’s only so much time that you have. It’s hard to really fit everything in. You can’t. I have realized that sometimes there are periods you have to devote more to one area of your life than another – work, your partner, friends, self. When I start to feel a gap…when I don’t want to wake up in the morning or when I am not feeling good about myself…I move things around. You sacrifice some things but you gain because of knowledge in other areas. - 40-something, graphic designer

Be gentle with yourself. 

In my 20s I felt like I had to figure it all out in advance. I wanted to plan out the timeline of my life, including who I would be with and what that relationship would look like. But now I know you can’t.

Just know that the pain of a breakup is finite.

Breakups are a hangover. They can be awful but they do go away. You think you will never drink again…but you do. And you love again.
