Any advice for how to be 23?

Thanks for everyone that texted to wish me happy birthday yesterday! It legitimately made me feel so loved. Here were all y’all’s answers.

“Don’t forget how old you are. I still have to think about it when I tell people my age. Sometimes I catch myself about to say 21 and others I do say 22. 23 seems pretty forgettable for some reason.”

“Well you know it’s a different lifestyle when you are 23.”

“Nothing seems different. Someone asked me how old I was last week and I had to think about it”

“I think you’ll handle it fine 🙂 Remember, only boring people get bored!”

“Well, I’ve never been 23, so no experience to speak from. I would say be grateful, let go graciously, and be kind to yourself throughout the learning process, recognizing that change is not linear.”

“It sucks! 24 is better! 🙂 But enjoy the day. Eat some cake and walk a dog!

“Don’t plan out everything. Do things you enjoy no matter what everyone else I pushing. I try to live by that.”

“When it rains don’t use an umbrella”

“Have fun? Travel? You do those things anyway. Keep it up!”

“Enjoy each day; it goes fast. Pray for guidance and read Proverbs.”

“You can grow a lot. Fast. People view 23 as an adult as opposed to 22 which is baby-ish.”

“Stay young though you are growing up 🙂 And try new things, continue blogging , invest in people and make sure the Gospel is being heard hundreds of different ways of your life. It will change your heart. :)”

“Don’t regret the past, learn from it. Don’t be scared of the future, embrace it. And don’t sleep the days away, live them! 23 will consist of great city life, fun friend adventures in multiple states and great opportunities for you Miss Morgan”

  1. Happy belated bday Morgan!
    As a not yet 23 year old, I’d have to say be wise and live by truth. Old fashioned advice from Abigail Adams.: “Many of our disappointments and much of our unhappiness arise from our forming false notions of things and persons.”
    Love ya! Say hi to Heather for me. And mr and mrs murphy too.

  2. I will say do something new, exciting and enjoy every second of it. I love this poem by Robert Frost

    “The Road Not Taken

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.”

    Love ♥
