Especially when it comes to decisions, or even just simple plans that affect you and your daily life, it's key to step up and let your voice be heard. More often that not, you have something to say. Being in your 20s, there are a lot of decisions that come your way. You have to decide where you want to live, what passions you're going to pursue, and what people you're going to surround yourself with for it all. You could crumble under the pressure, or you could learn to be decisive. To me, it's pretty clear what will lead to the better outcome.
When you put your life decisions in the hands of someone else, you're no longer living an adventure that's meant for you. Yes, making these choices can be hard, and you might pull out a pros and cons list.

But, it'll feel good to have answers to those questions you should always ask yourself. There's truly a lot to be said for being financially independent. In fact, I've found that it's probably one of the best although not always easiest ways to take charge of your life, especially in your 20s.
When you graduate college, you're likely pretty broke.

Books and weekends out with your friends definitely added up. So, you might move back home until you have the funds to get a place of your own. You'll land your first job, and want to spend some time building a budget — considering all of your income and expenses so that you can get to where you want to go. Once you have those goals in place, and then achieve them, there's not much stopping you from living your best life.
Maybe you'll have to take a trip solo, or just do some soul-searching in a coffee shop. The second you find that confidence, though, you'll be unstoppable. Truth is, you have to be in touch with yourself to know what you need and want out of life.

Otherwise, you're just making choices based on what everyone else thinks, or settling for something quite average. Spend time with you , and enjoy that solitude so that you can start taking charge. Odds are, you've yet to have taken charge of your life because you're doubting yourself. You don't know your own worth, and it's key that you realize it before moving forward.
You should know what you deserve when it comes to your relationships and friendships, and not be afraid to expect the people in your life to step up to your standards. Not to mention, you owe it to yourself to do things that make you happy and become everything you've ever dreamed of being. Taking charge of your life can be intimidating, but I promise you have the strength and energy within you to make it happen. Don't waste another second of your time, because there's a life you'll absolutely love waiting for you on the other side. By Marisa Casciano. Wake Up Early. Hold Your People Accountable.
