Hey loves F & J here!
Please note that tonight's blog post reflect our personal feelings, and we believe in true love, no matter the age, or how fast it comes! We are not people who judge, we just want to speak about something that we both have been noticing lately.
It must be the season of love, because we both have been noticing an extremely large amount of people on our individual Facebook timelines that are getting, married, engaged, expecting a baby, or have a baby already. Remember we are only a couple years out of high school. Though there may be a bit of an age difference between F & J, we both went to high school together, and share a lot of the same friends.
Out of curiosity, we tallied up names of people we went to high school with, that fit one or more of these categories.We came up with about 45 individuals. Is it just us, or does this seem like a crazy high number? It feels like there is a new engagement every week and we can't keep up.
We are sitting here trying to figure out what we want to do with life, and there are so many people we know who seem like they have everything figured out. It is leaving us feeling a little behind in life.
We both find nothing wrong with all the engagements and babies, after all this is something we want so badly ourselves, but it seems like everyone is on a fast track. One day someone is dating someone new, then basically in a few months they're engaged, and before you have time to blink we swear there are wedding pictures on Facebook. We see this happening so often, that it is hard for us to come to terms with the fact that it is okay to not be at the same point in life.
We have to constantly remind ourselves that we are only 18 and 21 for goodness sakes, and we should be enjoying our youth in the way we want to. Both of us are very open to the idea of love, and we can't wait to find our own prince charmings to come swoop us off our feet, but until then we are sitting here single at the moment (unfortunately), and trying to live our lives to the fullest. Without a doubt we want to get married one day. And for our own personal self we want to figure out who we are, before we say 'I Do'
The quote attached to this post says, "Comparison is the thief of joy", and we find this fitting because feeling down about not being where they are will not allow us to live in the moment, and be thankful for what we have. And we want to fully appreciate life, and not feel the need to compare our lives to others.
F & J
