Life is full of surprises and to be an adult is way harder than what I anticipated. I used to think it’s going to be simple. But it’s not.
My adulting stage have been somewhat of a roller-coaster. I’ve had the lowest of lows and the highest of highs and I cannot even begin to articulate just how much my life has changed within that space.
I know I’m supposed to be a grown up. And most days I’m pretty successful at pulling it off. Like so many other women, I run around taking care of people, being a good employee, maintaining home, running countless chores and unsuccessfully dieting.
Once in a while, though, I’d like to stop adulting. I just want to stay in bed and sleep all day and not think about work or any problems in life.
Or have a cup of coffee in the quiet and read a good book, or put on my favorite playlist and jam away.
Or stay up late and binge-watch TV series and eat all my favorite food without worrying about my weight.
I want to think about of all the great things in my life. I want to go to a place far away from negativity. My dream is to live away from the city. I hate the traffic, the pollution, the slow-walking pedestrians and the dangerous cyclists. I want to live near the ocean, watch the waves and feel the fresh air.
Can I get a break from all the adulting and hustling, and create beautiful things all day? Ahh, the dream life.
