20Something



OK, so when I read this... I may have taken it a little too personally, but it infuriated me.

How stupid and childish can you be? This is exactly whats wrong with the 20somethings today.

Let's get one things straight. There is definitely never ever a ten year period of your life when you are given permission to be selfish. How arrogant and self consumed can you be? And falling in and out of love? That sounds like exactly what God planned for you, to have your heart broken over and over and to in turn break someone else's (note the sarcasm).

I'm all for going on adventures and making mistakes... but selfish?

News Flash: IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU!

Seriously, if you could wrap your mind around that concept... if you could truly grasp the concept that everything is not in fact about you... I FEEL LIKE TYPING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE THAT"S HOW AGGRAVATING THIS IS.

There is a great big world out there, and a lot of 20 year olds will take on this way of life. But its wrong, and to be quite honest with you its not biblical.

I propose something a little different.

I propose you see your twenties as a gift from your creator.

A chance to explore and try new things and take adventures.

To make new friends and pour your heart into your passions.

To be SELFLESS and give whenever possible.

To serve.

To fall in love with the One who created you.

To be kind and gentle and humble.

To try and fail...

To be gracious and wise.

That's what it means to be 20something... everything else is crap.

Philippians 2:3 "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit..."

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
