Sometimes I really have a hard time understanding how I became such an adult. I swear it was like I woke up one day and had all these responsibilities, and life wasn’t so happy-go-lucky anymore. Where have all my years gone?!
One of the hardest things to do sometimes is come to terms with the fact that this is life now. That someone who owns things, has a career, has people relying on her, can’t just go back to the days without responsibility. It’s literally not possible. Life will continue to move forward, and you have to do the same to progress.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to go backwards! But there are certainly days where I miss driving around with my friends blasting music, and my biggest worry was what my Friday plans were. You don’t realize what you’ve got, while you’ve got it. They always say “youth is wasted on the youth”, and I know I’m making myself sound old, but damn it’s just true! If I really knew how quickly everything changes, I can’t help but feel I would have done things differently.
These feelings are probably brought on by the fact that I am FAST approaching my 30th year of life. And though I actually am excited for this new chapter in my life, I still feel like time has moved too fast, and I would love to have some of my past moments back.
I would love to stay out all night for beat the clock drinks down by the beach, but I know I’ll be recovering from that for days. Yes days! There are nights where I simply stay up too late, and I feel like I’m nursing a hangover. Not to mention, the things I enjoy have changed. I know I’ve mentioned this a FEW times, but I used to absolutely hate being in on a Friday night. Now I want nothing more than to come home from work, get into comfy clothes, and snuggle up on the couch.
Things change man, and you don’t even see it coming! I have become so many things I said I would never be, and it is what it is! So if there is ANY advice I can give to someone young it’s to take advantage of every opportunity, every night out, every experience, because before you know it your life becomes unrecognizable. #SuchACliche
