23 Quotes Every 23-Year-Old Needs To Hear
Mistakes are proof that you're trying.
Millennials often get a bad rap, but what we often forget is that we are the generation that can make a difference. 23 is slightly an awkward age. You passed your big 21st birthday milestone, you're not yet 25, and you are close to a decade away from 30. At 23, you might be fresh out of college and starting to make your mark on the real world. It's at this age that you start to fully understand who you are as a human being and what you want in life. More importantly, at age 23 you are still wanting to have full, yet still keeping your dreams and goals close to your heart. Don't think just because you are a millennial that you can't do things, think of being 23 as being young, but not so young that you are not to be taken seriously. You get what you put back in. Make mistakes and make more mistakes, because all mistakes have a lesson to learn. At 23, think of yourself as a sponge, just taking in experiences that the world has to offer.
