There is a negative connotation associated with the word “selfish”. It’s something we learned when we were young. Being selfish meant not sharing your toys, not caring for others, and only thinking of yourself. Fast forward 15 years and you’ve hit your twenties. All the sudden the definition of selfish changed, but somehow still has a negative connotation.
Our twenties should be a time of complete selfish-ness. You have now reached an age where every decision you make is for yourself (or should be). What you study, where you live, who you associate yourself with, these should all be completely selfish decisions because you are now in control of your own life.
Our twenties are filled with selfishness, but this doesn’t mean we don’t care for others. We need to take a minute to care for ourselves and decide what makes us happy. We become self aware, self-motivated, and most of all we feel a sense of self-discovery. We are finding out who we are and who we want to be for the first time, and it’s all about you.
Have you taken the time to think about what it is you want out of your twenties and out of life? Are you being selfish? There has been no better time to put yourself first and find what makes you happy.
This month’s wallpaper was inspired by none other than the author of “She”. Kobi Yamada. If you’re struggling to find happiness and become a little selfish, this book (and wallpaper) will give you the push you need to make your life everything you’ve imagined.

She loved life and it loved her right back.
She listened to her heart above all other voices.
She pursued big dreams instead of small realities.
She saw every ending as a new beginning.
She discovered her real measurements had nothing to do with numbers or statistics.
She was kind and loving and patient with herself.
She woke up one day threw away all her excuses.
She realized that she was missing a great deal by being sensible.
She turned her can’ts into cans and her dreams into plans.
She ignored people who said it couldn’t be done.
She had a way of turning obstacles into opportunities.
She went out on a limb, had it break off behind her, and discovered she could fly.
She discovered that she was the one she’d been waiting for.
She added so much beauty to being human.
She walked in when everyone else walked out.
She just had this way of brightening the day.
She made the whole world feel like home.
She decided to enjoy more and endure less.
She decided to start living the life she’d imagined.
She colored her thoughts with only the brightest of hues.
She was creative and her life was her canvas.
She held her head high and looked the world straight in the eye.
She not only saw a light at the end of the tunnel, she became that light for others.
She designed a life she loved.
She took the lead and built her wings on the way down.
She said bye-bye to unhealthy relationships.
She remained true to herself.
