Being an adult does not mean you stop dreaming. You can still have goals and you can still fight your way. It is never too late. One beautiful thing about being adult is that you already have your basics done. You’ve gotten a job (or will get soon inshaaAllah) so you can earn a living and not leech off your parents.
With that monthly pay you’ve got, what are you going to do with it? Save for marriage? Go for courses? Travel? You can do just about anything with your hard earned money.
But here’s the thing, then what? What are you going to do with your life? If you love your job then Alhamdulillah, but what if you don’t? Is it too late to reflect and think what steps can be taken next? Like I’ve said, it is never too late inshaaAllah.
Starting having dreams and goals again. Make life exciting again. Look forward to some new changes. Do something for the community. Giving back to the community is the best way to make life meaningful again. Plus you get to meet new people.
Some adults have goals and it’s great but, these goals that we want to achieve does not come easy. We really have to work for it. On top of that we often feel at lost and confused on how to achieve this adult dream of ours.
Just remember, these goals are not instant goals. They take years to achieve. Create 5 year plans. You’ve got a life ahead of you, your 30s, 40s, 50s, InshaaAllah. Failing to achieve anything in adulthood is only another chance to try. Just don’t give up.
Remind yourselves that life is a long journey and there will be changes, both good and bad. It is how you react to changes that reflect how much you’ve grown.
Last but not least, have fun in life. Enjoy and spend time with your loved ones, family and friends. Despite being constantly tired (especially being a childcare teacher) find time for yourself and the people around you. Because you will definitely need that fun time to recharge.
This serves as a reminder to me as well. At the end of the day ultimately Allah knows what is best for us. Don’t forget to have good intention, have effort and have faith then the rest Allah will take care of it.
May Allah bless you and your family, whoever you maybe (:
