So you made it (yay!)—you’re officially an adult. Well wait, hold on. Ever notice that you look at those around you and think every single one of them seems to have their lives together? Everyone except you. The truth is, we’re all winging it. Early 20’s or late 50’s, we’re all just trying our best to muddle through, learning things as we go. There’s no ‘how to’ book on life, instead we have to just put our game faces on and get on with it.
So that’s the big secret—no one really knows what they’re doing. There is at no point in your life, a day when you wake up with all the answers. In fact, adulthood is more about accepting that you don’t know everything, that you still carry worries and insecurities, but you get on with it anyway. If you can accept that, then you are as close to a successful adult as you can possibly be!
A lot of adult life—especially when you are new to it—can seem somewhat mundane. You might discover new found happiness in the most unlikely of places: an unusual sense of excitement from a new dish sponge, a pair of cozy slippers or socks to slip on after a long day of being a #girlboss, or the happiness that comes with good drying weather on laundry day. It really is the simple pleasures, isn’t it?
But there are a lot of exciting things about being an adult too. You have the freedom to go out and do what you want. If you have a dream- go and chase it, vina! There is no one stopping you but yourself. So go out there and grab life while you can, do the things you always dreamt of, and fulfill your childhood dreams!
We’re all just looking for happiness in any form that we can. That’s what makes us alike. It’s OK to not know in what direction you are going, as long as you don’t stop moving. Adult life can be daunting, but with mistakes comes experience. We have one life to live, so don’t let fears and unknowns hold you back. Go out and live your best life!
Adulting doesn’t have to be hard when you have your vinas supporting you! Start swiping today.
