The ‘roaring 20s’ is the time to be alive, as they say. It is a time to be adventurous and do all the things you want to – travel, fall in love, make practical decisions with regard to your career, and also make mistakes, and grow. It’s a great time to revel in the unexpected, and learn from myriad experiences.
It is the time when you are still discovering your purpose and who you are in this world.
