What should I be doing in my 20’s? The good (yet anxiety filled) answer is that there are endless amounts of things to do in your 20s, that can help you live an amazing happy life.


Becoming a 20something is a moment I remember looking forward to all my life. No longer subject to the rules of my parents house, but still not aged enough for people to start thinking of me as old (Whew!)


There are a lot of things people tell you that you should have figured out by the time you’ve hit age 20something, but the truth is, someone else’s path will never be yours to take.


So if you asked if I had any regrets on the path I’ve decided to take to date, my answer would be simple,no.


Through every moment, every setback, every good and bad day, I’ve learned something that has helped me to become the person I am today.


So no, I wouldn’t change a thing.


If you’re here today for a push in the right direction of what you should be doing in your twenties, my short answer would be to focus on the things that bring you happiness.
