Life from start to the finish, just like this crystal ball - is a delicate thing. I see my friends moving on from high school kids to university, graduation, first job, first date, weddings and most of all their first child.......these are all the normal state of life.
As normal as it is, where are you now? I am asking myself this question as I do not believe in the norm but how to measure my life meter when I do not go by doing the things on that list because I just do not want to follow the crowd? I do not wanna be the ones to get marry because we are at certain age, not to mention giving birth at certain age. I am just a person with a free will and lucky to get away from the norms.
And as likes attract likes, most of my friends would probably as lost as me because they do not try to fit themselves to the norm. Is that good and bad? I get irritated by those who like to compare by the marks we get from maths test, HSC grading, University degree, current salary, handsome boyfriend, expensive handbags or a good watch! I do appreciate those things but I do not believe having them would add marks to my attractiveness and so I do not chase after them.
I would very much say I am an outlier, I would not led my life by the norm timeframe. But it would seem I am very much missing out in a lot of amazing things too. I do not regret life choices and I still believe I wanna shine in a different way.
I do not believe life is full of fixed equation as we are different individuals.
Just sharing on a bit of my life choices, what are yours?
