I honestly can’t remember exactly when it happened. But, one day, it happened. A switch flipped. I realized I was an adult.
You guys know exactly what I’m talking about… the moment when you realize that you’re not a kid anymore, that you’re not in college anymore, that you’re no longer really even a “young adult.” You’re just a full fledged… ADULT. Doing all of the adulting things and all of the stress and responsibilities (and BILLS) that come along with that.
But even moreso, one of the things I’ve been learning more and more as I get older is about learning to be MYSELF as an adult. I’m no longer the version of the person that I used to THINK I should be, or the person I used to think OTHER PEOPLE thought I should be… I’m just me. Quirks and all.
I’m not saying I don’t have insecurities (I do!), and I’m not saying I think I’ve got it all figured out (I REALLY do not), but I do feel way more confident in my own skin and in my own body and in my own life than I ever have before. I don’t know what it is about adulthood that makes us totally look back at every single little thing in life and go, “I stressed out about THAT?!” or “Why on earth would I do THAT when I was younger?” or “Did I really think THAT was important?”
I hope I’m making some sort of sense…
What about you? When did you realize you were an “ADULT”? What was the hardest part about transitioning to adulthood for you?
It’s the Let it Shine Link-Up!
This link up has been going on for over FOUR years!!! And we want to change things up a little bit… Carly and I are teaming up to do more than host our link up…. we are teaming up to share brands that we love – brands that create CHANGE. Each week we’ll be collaborating with one of our favorite brands to share good they are doing in addition to their amazing products. If YOU have a post (new or old) that features a brand that give back…..please include it in the link up. We’d LOVE to see it!
