I had never heard of Quaterlette.com until they approached me about writing an article for them about my journey with Dieting and Mindful living. Since then I’ve loved checking out all the information and stories from women who are experience ‘quater life’ issues. Everything from relationships, finance, raising a family. Here’s Quaterlette’s manifesto:
“I feel like I’m having a quarter-life crisis!”
If you’re like us, you’ve heard this phrase come out of the mouths of women in their mid-twenties to early thirties more times than you can count.
As three girls in our late-twenties, we have been exposed to endless stories from our friends about the difficulties that come along with this life stage. We’re old enough now where we have expectations for ourselves. We feel like we’re supposed to have an exciting job, a decent income, a cozy home and a fulfilling relationship. And if we don’t, we tend to feel incredibly lost.
However, while this time can be difficult and confusing, it can also be incredibly rewarding and life-changing as well. Some may call it the “quarter-life crisis” – we prefer to think of it as a tricky and exciting time full of changes, transitions and decisions. We’ve had exceptional and memorable days during our twenties, but we’ve had some challenging and anxiety-filled days as well, as we are constantly trying to weave together who we think we should be and who we want to be with the reality of who we are.
I can relate to that Quater life crisis…especially when it comes to finally giving up diet and my 15 year battle with my self image issues. Here’s the article I wrote for them. Take a look if you get a chance and email me anytime at: firstname.lastname@example.org
