Don’t think there is a different between what you want vs what you need? There are probably 3 potential reasons for this: A) life has been pretty gentle with you B) you might be of a younger age and haven’t fully plunged into those key milestones (the serious long term relationship, the stable job, etc) C) You’re just damn lucky and the stars are always aligning “perfectly” for you. For the sake of this post, let’s say you are starting to realize that there might be a difference between what you want and what you actually need.

When we are younger we think we know exactly what we need to be happy: the job, the romantic partner, the house, etc. As we get older and wiser, we start to realize that we don’t always know best and in this video I share the two key areas of my life where I thought I knew what I wanted but it turns out I needed something totally different. Enjoy watching!

It’s so important to be open to what life is trying to teach us. To understand that although we might have been taught that we should check certain boxes to find that perfect boyfriend/girlfriend, dream job or other, the reality might be slightly (or very) different and that’s 100% okay. In fact, it’s kinda refreshing when life takes an unexpected turn and we end up somewhere we could have never imagined. The key thing is to have fun along the way and be willing to let go of our set expectations.
