Turning Twenty Years Old

Turning Twenty Years OldBy the time that this post goes up on my blog I will have turned 20 years old. My teenage years will have finally passed (celebratory dance). Your teenage years are supposed to be the best years of your life, but your teenage years aren’t always sunshine and roses. At least mine weren’t anyway. There were some amazing highs, but these also came with some really low times.

Turning twenty is strange and I’m not entirely sure how to feel about it. Twenty years old and I definitely feel old in one sense, yet at the same time I still feel young. I doubt that makes any sense whatsover, but it makes sense to me.

In all honesty I’m glad that my teenage years are over with and I’m ready to embrace whatever my twenties have to throw at me. I’m not expecting it to be a breeze and I expect there to be a lot of challenges but I’m ready to face them head on. I’m not entirely sure what to expect in my twenties, but I’m excited.

Let’s just say that I have high hopes that my twenties will be better than my teenage years.

I’m not sure what my twenties have in store for me and I don’t have any goals for the next decade; I don’t even know what I’m going to be doing this time next year. Will I still be in the same job that I’m doing now, or will I be somewhere else? I’m not sure, we’ll have wait and see what the future holds.

At the moment I don’t have any specific goals in mind to steer me in a certain direction but at the moment I’m going wherever life pulls me. Even if I did have goals in mind, they don’t always go to plan anyway and you never know what life might throw at you. I never expected to be in the position I am today yet here I am.

I’m sure that I’ll end where I’m supposed with a little faith. Everything happens for a reason – whether we know that reason or not is a different matter.

  1. Happy Birthday and congratulations for escaping the teen years. I felt so different when I turned 20. It was weird, never before have I felt so different on a birthday. I am several years past 24 now and I have never felt what I felt that year. I hope this is your best year yet.
    and I agree the teens were not the best.


  2. Happy Birthday Lovey! 🎈💛
    I turned 20 in June and it’s so weird isn’t it? I always think 20 sounds older than 21. Everyone says that your twenties are the best so let’s hope they are for both of us! Meg x


  3. Your twenties are definitely a weird time – you’re supposed to be well into adulthood but you’re still kind of a kid at heart and so you’ve just got to middle through and figure stuff out! I’m 22 and my twenties have been some of the best but confusing years so far. Happy birthday!

  4. Happy 20! I remember I turned 20 in Italy and it was still very strange. You’re definitely turning a new page of a book, yet you’re not quite at the end of your chapter. I recently turned 23 and I wrote about how scared I am to grow up! It seems that you never really shed your baby years. What I have learned is that your life is what you make it. So, I say take full advantage of every moment!



  5. On my next birthday I’ll be in my last year of my twenties. Embrace your twenties. You start to get to know yourself more. Happy birthday!


  6. Happy Birthday! Hope you’ve had a fab day! Lovely post, I’m sure you’ll have opportunities and your life will change for the better in the next year 🙂


  7. Happy birthday! I can give you many years (not going to reveal my age tho!) and I still live life as it comes. That said, I don’t get anywhere nearly as stressed about things as I did in my teens and twenties because I’ve realised what matters is my family and nothing else comes close. Just be you and enjoy any and all opportunities that come your way. Never say never, good luck, and have fun! X
