There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either… Now is your time. Become, believe, try. Walk closely with people you love, and with other people who believe that God is very good and that life is a grand adventure. Don’t spend time with people who make you feel like less than you are. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path.

This so perfectly describes where my heart is at right now – in this glorious stage of a twenty-something, still becoming, learning, doing. And while uncertainty often leans itself towards anxiety, I’d much rather embrace this season of becoming with open arms instead of wishing it away.
