Most people spend the first thirty-five years of their lives trying to get there lives in order. This article describes three milestones most people feel they have to achieve in order to be truly happy. Most people feel they can take your foot off the accelerator a little if they manage to place ticks next to the three things mentioned in this post.
Milestone 1: Finding the perfect career.
There is no getting away from the fact that most people aren’t happy with their lives until they identify the perfect career and score a suitable job role. Unfortunately, that process can take a long time for some people, but you must never give up hope. The right employment solution is out there somewhere, and you just need to find it. Ideally, you need something that is going to provide a stable income while also making you feel fulfilled and incredibly happy. When searching for your dream career, think about what you’re most passionate about and what you’re talents are.
Milestone 2: Getting on the housing ladder.
Most adults struggle to relax and feel content with their lives until they own a house. When you have a home; you often begin to feel safe and secure. That is rarely the case for people who live in rented accommodation with the threat of landlord evictions at any time. While I personally don’t feel this way (I truly love the freedom of renting)- most adults beg to differ. They fill that once their on the housing ladder, it’s easy to move up and increase the value of their asset. It all comes down to what works best for you. I find that renting gives me the freedom to move around the world easily. It’s also nice not having to worry about repairs and maintenance- the property manager takes care of all that!
Milestone 3: Meeting your life partner.
According to The Independent, most people won’t settle down until they’ve met someone they deem to be special. Meeting someone can be so difficult, but it really comes down to just need to get yourself out there. Try to find someone who loves you, and who is willing to put as much effort into the relationship as you are. Before you know it; you’ll find receipts for places like 77 Diamonds hidden in the car and some suspicious plane tickets for an exotic weekend away. That said, not everyone feels the need to meet someone to feel complete and that’s just as good, in fact it might be even better!
The point of this is, everyone’s ideas of life milestones are different. Whether you’re looking for love or you enjoy being single, have found your dream job by 22 or love your rental apartment- everyone’s idea of happiness is different. At the end of the day, you need to figure out what makes YOU happy. Don’t just assume the social norms are the things that are going to make you happy. Dig deep and consider what you really want out of life!
