I have been successfully adulting for about 40+ years. I mean, I’m only 53, so that’s way too much adulting for way too long.
“Don’t you find it odd,” she continued, “that when you’re a kid, everyone, all the world, encourages you to follow your dreams. But when you’re older, somehow they act offended if you even try.”
I have been adulting since I have been a child. I actually hate the world adulting… So, I have decided over the past few years to start childing again. Cut myself some slack, let loose, and just give myself the gift of a happy childhood – now.
“O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales.”
“For in every adult there dwells the child that was, and in every child there lies the adult that will be.”
“I am convinced that most people do not grow up…We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up. I think what we do is mostly grow old. We carry accumulation of years in our bodies, and on our faces, but generally our real selves, the children inside, are innocent and shy as magnolias.”
