Nobody just becomes an adult because they want to. Sure, people can try to be an adult, but really it’s not something you can control. One day you’re a kid and the next that’s all over and you are an adult. It’s not sad or painful, at least not all the time, but it’s not something you can just will to happen, it just does. So trying to judge yourself on the basis of whether or not you are a real adult is sort of silly, although I’m sure everybody has felt like a “bad” adult, or that they need to “grow up”. But people don’t grow up, do they? No, people don’t grow up, they just…grow.

I believe all people are bits and pieces, and throughout life we can gather pieces from others or give some of ours away. Some people are only out to take everything they can, while others will give until they have nothing left, but most of us fall in between. And yet there are those people who will defy all logic and simply toss there pieces into the trash, for nobody and nothing at all. I don't know if it's possible to get back those pieces that have been thrown away, but this blog is all about my journey, to try and find out if someone who threw away everything for nothing can find something, or anything at all...I'm just looking for a reason to keep on living.

I’m not an adult and I have a 12 year old! I still complain like a teenager, party like a teenager (when I can stay awake), and “hang out” like kids do. 😀

I’ve been working in management for years, to people much older than me, so it’s given me the appearance of being older (not physically though as I’m perpetually confused for a highschooler). But I still want chocolate milk for lunch and to play on a jungle gym versus running on a treadmill!!

But in all seriousness, great post!
Thank you! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this blog, whether or not what I write is something people might read, but it’s been really encouraging! Plus there’s a ton of blogs out there with great writing tips (like yours!) I’m looking forward to expanding my writing and doing what I love for once!

I came to blogging with the same mindset as you, it’s been a great experience! Thank you, I hope you find it helpful!
Holding on to your inner kid is more important than “growing up” whatever that means. Keep your sense of wonder, your joy, your bravery. And go to the dentist. LOL
