Growing up is such a weird concept. One minute you’re carefree and do whatever you want and the next you have responsibilities and things become serious. For some people it’s a huge bummer and weighs them down and for others they may find a way around growing up completely and stay free-spirited. If you think about it, growing up isn’t what some of us fear it to be. It all depends on how you look at it and how you decide to react to the new chapter of your life. For some people this chapter starts when they graduate high school or maybe when they graduate college. Growing up is basically your reaction to taking on more responsibility than you have ever experienced; that responsibility is you. For the first time in your life you have to think for and learn to take care of yourself and create your own way of life. Yes this can be very scary. You have to earn your own living and make big decisions.
For some this may means you can’t have fun anymore because you’ll be to busy, really though it all depends on your perspective. You can be the busy businessman who never does anything but work, you could have a child like complex and be a famous artist or a starving one. In the end your quality of life is perceived through your eyes and yours only.
What do you see? How does it make you feel? How will you respond? Will you have a positive attitude about your life? Or will you sulk at the life you wish you were living? Happiness is a perspective. If you wish to change your life you must first open your mind to the endless possibilities around you. Growing up doesn’t have to be a drag, it could be exciting! You can flourish in everything that comes your way.
Take the next steps in your life with a contagious positivity. It’s ok to be sacred, but know you’re never alone.
