The Quarter Life Epiphany

8 November 2012

By Holly Roberts

I feel like I’m in the future. I feel like my whole life I’ve been writing about what I want to happen. Where I’ll be when I’m 25. What I’ll be doing. Where I’ll live. And I’m 25 in two months, and it’s been go go go.
And I’m happy.

Clearly, Otherwise I would have been writing more often.

What happens when I don’t chill out, write, write music for an extended period of time is – I break down.

I guess I didn’t realise just how much I would learn about life and people in my time here.

I’m learning about love and loyalty. But no one ever got anywhere by being content. I think my best music has been written when I’ve been upset. It’s a creative outlet.

Do your best and the universe will take care of you. You are never alone.

Like the words from Maggie Smith’s character on Downton Abbey

“You are a woman with brains and ability, stop whining and use them.”
