The Ins & Outs of Adulting

Hello, welcome to the real world. We're so happy you could join us!

Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a crazy dream? As in, how on earth am I surviving without someone daily telling me what to do?? If so, know you're not alone. Let's be honest for a moment, it's a hard adjustment. You've spent your whole life up until this point as a kid, a student, and someone who is told what to do & when to do it. Fast forward to graduating and entering the workforce: now you're expected to be an adult with loads of responsibility.

But what does being an adult even look like?

To me, these last four years in the real world have shaped me into the person I am today - I've learned that just because I'm now looked at as an adult, the label doesn't change who I am. I am constantly growing, learning, and experiencing things for the first time ALL the time. I challenge myself because it makes me stronger. I read because I want to & because I have, I've gained knowledge about things I previously knew nothing about. I find ways to incorporate new words & terms into my everyday conversations.

Ultimately, I recognize that I alone am in control of my life. I can choose daily to have a positive outlook, own my actions, and be respectful of others. For me, I always bring it home & owe a lot of my adulting knowledge to the skills and advice my parents gave me. Who better to help us navigate this crazy ride of life than the people who shaped our idea of what an 'adult' looked like. Don't be afraid to ask them for help - the truth is we're all figuring it out daily, learning to 'adult' in our own unique ways - so, enjoy the ride!

Here's to your ahhmazzinggg adulting badass self!
