Adulting is hard, usually because it involves actually acting like an adult who has responsibilities, who pays bills and stuff. BUT, here’s the thing… Adulting can be pretty awesome.
If there’s one thing I learned as an adult, is that we get choices, real ones, the kind the determine our present and our future. It’s a chance to learn and grow. I get that some days we want a break from all the responsibility that comes with growing up, and HEY we deserve it every now and then.
The last few days I’ve really been reflecting on my life and all that comes with it. It’s true, some days I’m exhausted, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I can assure you I’ve made plenty of mistakes in this lifetime. However, I’ve learned to really appreciate the silver lining in life.
Adulting has taught me many things, like how to stretch dollar, when to say no and when to say yes. It’s taught me about friendships, hardships, heartaches and even love. I’ve learned about loss and most importantly about how our life is not valued by our success or struggles but by our sheer determination. How it’s not always about being the best, but rather being the most passionate. I’ve learned to never stop asking questions and to never stop taking chances. I’ve learned to jump on the opportunities that pass me by, to trust my instincts and to be whoever my heart desires to be regardless of what people think.
It’s not always easy, but I can assure you, its been worth it. AND yes, there’s going to be that occasional day, when you want to binge on netflix and do nothing all day… or spend some hard earned cash on a frappuccino or books, because hey I do it too, and that’s the beauty of adulting, you get to pick what to do.
I just hope that whatever you choose, you can look back on and say… hey that was totally worth it. I’m raising my frap and wishing you an amazing adulting journey.
