There is no going back.
Many times my feminist friends hail themselves to be tougher than boys, almost as good as men. But I beg to differ here. The idea is not to be same but only to appreciate what is unique to each.
Same goes for growing old too. There is no looking back and well each era comes with its own flavour. Mixing the two emotions can always lead to a more calm and well settled feeling.
Why would anyone not want to be a teen? But then will the idea of being a teen forever appeal to many? No we wish to move forward and in fact every single stage has its own share of fun.
Hence the first and foremost step to being a more happy and content mid-twenty is to accept its changes in entirety and be appreciative of them.
Few things to remember while dealing with the growing moves of life
Be thankful that you have lived so far, many do not get a chance to experience times like these
May be tomorrow will bring another set of problems enjoy today to the fullest
If it is not this then what? Does the idea of being a twenty remain appealing forever?
Life is always about moving forward, no matter how many times you hold onto moments letting go creates another new set of them
Let change overwhelm you not the other way round. Allow life to deal you a hand, it will always bring forth new possibilities.
Let us know how you feel about being a mid-twenty, something you wish to hold on to and is different from all previous times.

Very wise, Richa. We must enjoy the present phase of our lives to the fullest – no looking back and no looking forward. 🙂
Very wise to live in the present! ♥
True. Wanting to stay in the past seems appealing but it’s foolishness. We should be thankful for all of it.
wise words indeed. By mid twenty, we tend to become more realistic in our approach towards life.
No point carrying excess baggage what?
The past is over. Might as well live in the present and look to the future. Life waits for no one.
Before stepping in my 30s, I was resisting the change coz being in 20s is so appealing and awesome. It took me long to get out of it but, realized, what matters is feeling youngish for ever. Age is just a number and its all in the mind. Richa! I am enjoying ur posts that speaks a lot. Perhaps, you should compile the whole series in an e-book: 20s: Youth anthem:)
Wise woman!! I agree 🙂 Live here live now…I know we will miss our mid twenties soon! 😉
Live in the moment, Richa! Well said!
Every phase of life has it’s own blues…well written …!
I like the idea – It is not a competition, it is about appreciating each one’s uniqueness.. Esp in the 20’s when it is so easy to emulate the role models and the way they are, Nice one Richa 🙂
Nicely written … mid twenties is all about chasing your dreams !!!!
well i am unique as you said in my thinking i always wanted to grow old before my time because in my teen every woman i liked was in her mid thirty and i use to hate the fact me being only twenty…! but these days things are different women i like are in their mid twenty and i m…i rather not mention.
Great post 🙂
Very aptly put. Every stage of life has its own uniqueness. No stage is better or worse than others. Every stage needs to be enjoyed in its entirety, with all its joys and sorrows, ups and downs, success and failures. Of course, as a senior citizen, I learnt this very late in my life. You, youngsters, are definitely very wise, practical and understanding life. I appreciate.
But one needs to put in conscious effort. This is where, I learnt the importance of conscious living. Mostly, we live a life of unconscious living, conditioned by our past and the meanings we have given to our past. And, we are unable to overcome our conditioned response to life and thus we make a misery of our life.
Thanks for writing.

I think when I was in my mid-twenties, I just couldn’t wait to start working and earn my own money and now that I do all that, I wish that I was back in college 🙂 The heart is never happy is doing what I do currently, sigh!
