Advice to contemplate and ultimately ignore

At age twenty, I know just a little over zero information. I’ve lived all sorts of experiences and to be honest, the best advice I can give you is keep going. And I mean for it to be that vague. It’s okay to stop and collect your thoughts, it’s okay to smell the roses, it’s okay to backtrack and try again for something you’ve missed.Just keep in the back of your mind that even though you can go at your own pace, you should never give up on moving forward.
                Keep going. There is a better moment waiting ahead. There is a better place somewhere out there. I don’t think “best moment of my life” applies to anyone; every single second you exist there is another opportunity to have something better. This life defining moment that we search for weighs down our mind. In hopes of achieving that moment, we ignore all splendor of the moments passing by. Once we experience a moment deemed worthy of life defining, we negatively judge every other second from then on. I’m not saying achieving your biggest dream is worthless; it just defines who you are. How is that bad? I’m not sure, but to me, I don’t want to be defined by one or two moments. I want my life to be a continuous stream of reaching new greatness, experiencing new things and old things. I want to extend past the regular dreams and find a constant state of amazement. We can only achieve this if we keep going.
