Sometimes I wish I was 29 with my life figured out & sometimes I wish I was 5 with my whole life ahead of me and not a care in the world
I’m 29. You know what I’ve got figured out? Tomorrow. And that a red shirt should really not go in a load of whites. Having your life figured out is not age dependent. The surest way to ruin your own life is to constantly down yourself for “not having it figured out”.
I’m 40, and “figured out” is an on going process. Some years it gets figured better than others, and just about the time you think you’ve finally got IT… life completely fucks you over and you start back at the bottom again.
Oh, OP. I am sorry, but the “life figured out” thing is not something that happens by 29, if at all.

I’m 29 and having things figured out does not come with the territory. Sorry. Hell, my dad is in his mid 60s and still says he wishes he knew what he wanted to be when he grows up.
I’m really starting to think that “adulthood” is one of the biggest lies in the history of the universe. As kids we see our parents or other adults - and everything looks so perfect, like if we could just get to where they are, everything will be fine. Then as we get older, we still see so many other people seeming to have it all together and we can’t understand why the fuck we don’t. I think the truth is no one really does, but we have to keep pretending we do, otherwise the space-time continuum will implode or something. XD
And really I think it’s kind of sad, because if we did a better job earlier on of letting each other know that it’s ok to not have it all figured out (or that we might never have it ALL figured out), imagine how much less stressful life would be. We wouldn’t have to spend so much time freaking out, thinking that we’ve screwed up somewhere for not having everything all perfectly organized by the time we are 18, or 25, or 30, or whatever age we are - when life is still just laughing its ass off at us, instead of following “the plan.”
