Lately I have been feeling as though I have had time limit set upon me. The clock is ticking away and time is running out. I have all these expectations that I am supposed to fulfill. Things that a lot of people desire. Things that I once used to desire myself. Like a house, a marriage, and kids. At 24, I find myself no longer wanting these things. I can’t help but wonder if I ever really wanted these things in the first place or if I desired them because it was normal to aspire to these things. I just turned 24 back in November. It seems to me like a lot of people my age are settling down and I’m happy for them. They’re buying houses, getting married, and having kids. If that’s what they want then I’m happy for them, truly, but this isn’t what I want for myself. I don’t want to buy a house. I don’t want to get married and I certainly don’t want to have kids anytime soon. I don’t want to settle down. I want to run wild and stay wild. In 2017, I vow to not let fear, anxiety or myself get in the way. I will live. I will not be bound by societal limits and expectations. I will not be tamed. I will run wild and stay wild. As Isadora Duncan once said, “You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.”
