STEPPING INTO ADULTHOOD

Transitioning from a teen to a young adult can be a challenging experience. Whether you decide to venture off to college, start a family, join the military, or start your career your life as a juvenile is over. You truly feel the impact of being an adult when you step out on your own. You become responsible for paying your own bills, cooking your own food, and cleaning your own house. You no longer have your parents to rely on for these things. College can also provide a sense of independence depending on whether you decide to live at home, stay on campus, or obtain a place of your own. College is one of the greatest experiences of young adulthood if you decide to choose that route. It is doing these years that you meet lifelong friends and begin to find a sense of who you really are as an individual. If you are away from home during college, you don't have your parents telling you what to do and you have to make some decisions on your own. Adulthood provides a better appreciation of life because you are responsible for providing a good life for yourself. The key to a successful adulthood is the degree of motivation that you possess. If you continue to live in child's mindset it may take longer for you to reach certain goals that are expected of you and that you may have set for yourself. Young adults who have to work hard for what they get tend to value things more than young adults who are given everything. Therefore, you can never compare the progress of one young adult to another because we all have different backgrounds and responsibilities. Networking is one of the keys to success no matter what age you are. It plays a major role in adulthood. Knowing certain individuals can get you to many places. It is very important to network and establish business relationships because you never know when you might need them. As you step into adulthood, make smart decisions, strive to reach your goals, and enjoy life. Be sure to remember where you came from because where you are headed will be a whole different experience.

  2. As you stated we all have different experiences and therefore are views will vary about life, goals, and success.Because I gave my life to the Lord at the age of nineteen I really can't identify with the averagre person as a young adult, but I can identify with the young adults who have given their lives to the Lord and who have recognized a calling of God on their life. No matter what we do when God is dealing with us, it changes alot of things about our world or life views that become very unique when we understand the purpose for which God allow certain things to happen, so I delight in knowing that God's plan for my life was the best one, even though at times I didn't understand but now I do, and my most supportive bible verse is " WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD AND ARE THE CALLED ACORDING TO HIS PURPOSE"' As they say " Differnt strokes for diffrent folks". Keep writing Naomi.
