Episode 16: Throwing out the TIMELINE & the "SHOULDS" 

In this episode:

  • Seasons of life that “should” be a certain way
  • Forgetting about timelines
  • Why we need to stop shaming each other
  • Trusting your gut & worrying less
  • Don’t stand in your OWN way

Today we are talking about the TIMELINE & all those “shoulds” that are associated with certain stages of life.

Society and the people around us put totally unnecessary pressure to be at a certain place or have certain things by a specific age, and I am calling BS on it all. There is NO timeline that you “should” follow. Your life is YOURS and that is it. And of course, because I am here to help with ACTION & TANGIBLE take aways, here are three things I know for certain that have helped me overcome the feelings we often have in this stage of life:

  1. 99% of the time what we worry about is not actually going to happen
  2. You were not given a vision for your life that is not yours to have
  3. Along the way, things will go wrong, but they likely weren’t even what we worried about

Quotes:

“Screw the damn checklist of you should be doing XYZ by blank age that society pushes on us.”

“99% of the time what we worry about is not actually going to happen.”

“If you show up to life as authentically as you can and you say yes to random things that excite you or pull at your heart strings, the universe or God or whatever you believe in, will help you get there.”

“Why not make the most of every single day, and throw the damn should and the timeline that you’ve created for yourself, and honestly girl for others, out the damn window.”

“Don’t be the only thing standing in your way.”
