What IS a Quarter Life Epiphany, exactly? (aside from being the former name of my blog, of course)
At first, it seems difficult to describe and define…
… because a Quarter Life Epiphany is the antithesis of a one-size-fits-all statement, a reaction against being forced into a mold.
A Quarter Life Epiphany is as personal and unique as the individual experiencing it.
For me, my Quarter Life Epiphany was realizing that I didn’t want to sit at a desk for the majority of the waking hours of the rest of my life, to earn money to buy things and things and things that I didn’t actually need and that, shockingly, weren’t actually making me happy. My Quarter Life Epiphany was realizing that I could live however I wanted to, and that I didn’t need to (and really, SHOULDN’T) follow a path laid out for me by someone else, by some collective idea of what a successful life means.
My Quarter Life Epiphany was a decision – I want to create my best life possible, for me. I want to be successful in my own way, not in a way that anyone else defines for me.
A Quarter Life Epiphany is the answer to a Quarter Life Crisis, described by Wikipedia as “a period of life usually ranging from the late teens to the early thirties, in which a person begins to feel doubtful about their own lives, brought on by the stress of becoming an adult. The term was coined by analogy with mid-life crisis.”
What is your Quarter Life Epiphany? What makes you happy, what doesn’t, and how can you live your best life possible?
