Adulting is hard. Thats a pretty well known fact. Recently it’s dawned on me that I am one, and you know what? I think I’m doing alright!
I alway say I’m a ‘pretend grown-up’ but I think I’m a real one after all! haha! And I’m very proud of that! I know I’m still really young, only 23, but I live in London, work really hard, manage to do more than survive and surround myself with really cool people! If thats not a successful young-adult I don’t know what is!
Don’t get me wrong, I know there are people that are doing better than me, have it figured out a bit more. Sure I haven’t decided what I want to do with my life, but I am only 23 and have so much time to figure it out! I think we’re in a society that puts pressure on all of us to ‘get it together’ and it’s okay if you don’t always and if you take a bit more time to think about you want out of life. It’s okay to not know what you’re doing all the time.
With the realisation that I am a full-blown-real-life-adult came the realisation that I’m doing alright, I don’t need to worry so much about not having the next few years planned out or know what career path I want to go down, I don’t need to question what I’m doing. It’s all alright.
I’ve also been thinking of a few ways I make adulating slightly easier/nicer for myself and I thought I’d share them;
Nice bed sheets! I bloody love nice bed sheets. Last week I invested in a new set from George, Asda and they’re great! A really good price for really nice quality and they make me feel like a successful adult which is a nice feeling.
Cacti This ones slightly silly, but I can’t keep plants alive. I just forget about them and then they die, I spend ages in denial thinking I can revive said plant, but then just forget again. So! Cacti are the way forward! Until I’ve figured out how to remember to water any plants future me might invest in, I’ll just keep a few Cacti around hehe.
Keeping a tidy room. I can happily say my current bedroom is the tidiest I’ve ever had. I think its because it’s also the smallest. I actually find it really easy to tidy up quickly as I’ve organised everything quiet well with specific homes for specific things. I also clean it regularly! I really enjoy having a tidy, clean bedroom to come and relax it. With my adult bed sheets, a bit of a greenery and the smell of polish, what could be better?!?!
Anyway, I’m not really sure where this post was going, but I hope anyone else feeling like a ‘pretend grown-up’ realises they’re doing alright, and there such a real adult, doing life as best as they can! Any other little ‘adulting’ tips anyone wants to share would be happily received too!
