Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
You never realize how true this quote is until your birthday is coming up and you’re another year older. I can feel myself getting smarter about things in life as I get older but seriously, I don’t want to grow up!
I’m at that perfect age where I’m done with college, I have my career going in the right direction, I’m in a stable relationship, but I don’t have many responsibilities. I love it! I’ve never feel so free or relaxed about my life. I was always after something, a degree, a promotion, etc. I feel I can just sit back and enjoy life while it’s all mine.
It’s weird to think that while growing up I always wanted to be a step ahead. When I was in jr high I couldn’t wait to be in high school. In high school, all I could think about was college. College? I graduated in three and a half years because I just wanted to be done! Sometimes I wish I could go back, and just savor the moments. But all I can do is savor the moment of being in my early twenties with nothing to loose!
Even though it definitely sucks growing up, I feel this is the age I could live at forever. Just the right amount of responsibilities and all the freedom I can handle!
What age would you want to live at forever?
