I agree with the first 5 points of things that are under-estimated.
“I hate to sound cliché, but everything really does happen for a reason. Sometimes it’s good to be lost, and sometimes it’s good to not have your life completely planned out. Trust me, I learned this one the hard way. I spent most of my early 20′s trying to control everything and everyone who walked into and out of my life. Finally something clicked one day, and I realized that living my life this way made me miserable, so I decided to make a change. One of the best times of my life was when I decided to stop looking at the big picture, just take each day at a time, and give myself permission to flounder…and do you want to know a secret? I became happier, and something wonderful happened. I met Matt, who eventually became my husband. You might think something is right for you, whether it be a job, relationship, etc., but it might not be what is best for you. If you refuse to let yourself be lost, than you never allow yourself to truly be found.”
I will write a post soon when the dust in my head has settled explaining why this point of Sarah Smiles Awhile’s blog post is poignant for me at the moment.
