Hello beautiful people!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday so far. So one big major update that everyone is probably aware of… it’s October! Finally, my favorite month is here and I am loving the pumpkins, leaves, hot drinks, and riding boots being posted all over social media! It’s the beginning of the best time of the year!
But who needs fall colors when you find bright fun clothes that will keep you just as warm! I’ve found an awesome poncho during the Lilly Pulitzer Anniversary Sale and its so cute, bright, and girly! I’ve added some pictures below and if I can find it I will try to link it. (If not I’ll find other cute bright fall clothes)
In other news I’m going to be starting this type of series on my blog called “society says.” It will be about things that I feel society pressures onto twenty somethings, women, just many things in general. It will be a fun way to release some stress and at the same time I would love to hear if these are things that others face and how they deal with it.
So today’s society says topic will be about marriage. So kind of heavy topic for some and for others not that big of a deal. For me it’s somewhere in-between. Not that I don’t care about marriage but many of the “issues” that people worry about aren’t even the real importance of marriage. But that’s a whole other issue that has nothing to do with what society says.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I feel that society views adults should be married and not only that they should be married at 23 or even 24. If you are past both of these ages… what are you doing? Well here is my answer society.
I’m living my life. I’m having fun. I’m enjoying every bit of youth. Because I know that whenever I’m ready to get married and I’m ready to start a family. I will be able to say, “Wow, I’ve done so much and I have no regrets. I am ready to start a new chapter in my life with the one I love and this will be a new beginning.”
Seriously though I’m so tired of hearing the infamous question. When are you going to get married? What about kids? Um what about them? And my love life is just that MY love life. I am comfortable and happy from where I stand and that’s all that matters. If I’ve ever come across like I needed more or wanted more well I’m sorry.
Yes, many of my friends and family are married. I am very happy for every person that has found that special one. Their “person.” It brings me nothing but joy for those people and I have nothing against anyone getting married at whatever age they did. But don’t ask me when is it going to be my turn. I never have (and never will) ask hey why did you get married so early? Don’t you think you should have waited? Your still so young!?
If it happens it happens. The only people that know is those people in that particular relationship. Nobody likes the added pressure (or in my opinion, annoyance) and nobody wants to hear it. This also goes for you asking all your single friends. (Believe me it’s just as if not more annoying)
And if you are single don’t feel pressured to be in a relationship. Don’t rush to something just to say you have somebody because everything and everyone around you is pressuring you to be a certain type of way. Enjoy your life! Be single! One day you will get married and you will look back and say, “I was to much and so was the rest of the world!”
Society says we should be married after college and be ready to have children not much longer. Well society I say I’m happy, I’m in love, and I don’t need your pointers. I will know when I’m ready and nobody or nothing will push fast forward on my life. I’m happy and as far as I know that’s all I need.
