Last week I thought about deactivating my Facebook – I spent roughly half of my work day contemplating this after reading a critical, yet realistic article about Twentysomethings and their dependence on social media. However, this turned out to be a fleeting moment because I realized that among all the rubbish that is posted on Facebook, I have actually found a few nuggets of inspiration on my newsfeed. And that alone was enough for me to postpone my social deactivation.
I’m clearly the target audience for many of the recent articles and lists written about being Twentysomething – I’m a month away from turning 25 and I admit that I’m going through a quarter-life crisis. While these articles are directed at people like me, I honestly believe that these articles contain fitting advice for people of all ages – it’s merely how it applies to your personal life. Because in the end, age is just a number, and we could all use a little reminder of what life’s truly about.
Here’s the inspiration that I’ve stumbled upon in the past week via Facebook:
- 25 Things I Want Myself to Know at 25 – I loved this list, my favorite was #20, especially because I’m struggling to revive my succulents right now.
- My Life via Hosltee Blog
- 11 Questions Every Twentysomething Should Ask – another solid article published by Relevant Magazine.
- A Fed-up Actress Says “Screw You, Hollywood” with an Amazing Plan to be the Change She Wants – When I watched this video she had 24 hours left of her Kickstarter campaign, and $50k more to raise. Within 24 hours she exceeded her goal!
- Because I’m a Twentysomething… – This was my favorite article of the bunch.
It’s not just about how you live your 20s, it’s about how you life your life.
