Forever young...

I was listening to ‘Forever Young’ (the 1D cover it obviously) and it really got me thinking. I don’t want to stay young forever, I want to dive into my life, I want to start living. For the past four years I have been longing to be older, to go college, graduate, get a job, move to NYC, get married, have kids, travel the world, and grow old with my family. But then I really thought about what makes being young so amazing and so desirable. When you are young, the world is at your feet and your dreams seem possible (or at least too far in the distance for you to really care). That is the feeling I want to have forever. I don’t want to let my mistakes and regrets pull me away from my dreams because right now I know I can accomplish them if I really try. Maybe I will live in Queens and not Manhattan at first, maybe I won’t find my dream man in my twenties, but that doesn’t mean I should give up or settle for something else. I think that if more people remembered the feeling I, and most of my peers, are experiencing right now they would realize that you don’t have to be young to do what you love and what you have dreamed of.  I am in Rome and I am enjoying every second of it! I don't want to belittle the work I did to get here, but honestly I wanted to go abroad and all I had to do was do it! I want to make sure I always 'just do it' because that's what living is all about isn't? 

**This is an updated repost from my old blog, but I thought that it captured how I am feeling right now
