It’s alright being an adult

A combination of my favourite song and my latest coming of terms with life. Brilliant!

I have to confess I always linked being an adult with being a boring person who hated their job, had a ton of bills to pay and had no joy. This can of course be true,  but I just realised it can also mean to be someone who can do well on their own, have the means to, for example, enjoy activities, go to places, upgrade a PC, buy glasses, etc.

It can be a mixture of responsibility  and common sense and fun, I don’t know why I was fixated on the idea that one can’t exist with the other, certainly this modern society burdens us with the idea of what a proper adult is, someone with their own car, buying a house to pay in 30 years, in other words is living a life imposed on “how things should be” but we as humans tend to do this throughout our lives.

I firmly believe you can do it all, yes you start with a job that may not make you passionate but it’s very nice and you get a nice payment ( I am of course speaking of myself here ) which allows you to get money to : buy things you need, save up, keep looking for that dream job ( translation agency!!) and further prepare yourself  ( I’m looking at you CAE test ) so being an adult for me means realising this, doing my best effort on all the things I do, even if it’s not my favourite things, cos such things bring me closer to the things I do want ! It’s also admitting maybe you relied too much on others, but this only made you more aware of how much there is left to learn, luckily I am a fast learner .

I have a brighter view on life, I have been thinking long and hard about my future and my life, something I avoided wildly not long ago, and… it’s alright, it’s not scary anymore, anything I want to do, I know I can, I know I am a fucking capable person and that is something that will always be true!

It also implies to keep your word and respect when others need time.

Nothing to ponder about life like seeing  this Tesseract.
