Today I was driving to work at the brick-and-mortar store that I'm one of the owners of and it hit me...
I'm a full-fledged adult.
That may be the scariest realization I've ever come to, but it came at just the right time. Just when I was feeling like I was lagging behind, not meeting my full potential, and missing something. Just when I thought I was incapable of adulting.
We all feel that way sometimes, don't we?
Like we missed the mark we set for ourselves.
Didn't quite live up to everyone's expectations.
Can't pay the bills.
Hate your job.
Hate your life.
Hate that you hate it.
Life can be a serious rollercoaster sometimes. And being adults we can hit our ultimate high and worst low all in the span of an hour. Sometimes life is sunshine and sometimes it just sucks.
I'm a pretty positive person when I try to be, but I also have to be real with you...
You won't hit every mark.
You won't meet everyone's expectations.
Sometimes you'll be late on the power bill or the water bill or the rent.
Sometimes you'll hate your job.
Sometimes you'll question who you are.
Sometimes you'll wonder which turn you missed to end up where you are.
Sometimes you'll hate your job and your life and everything.
But I promise you... It's going to be okay.
So clean those iPhone screens. Polish those selfie-smiles. Strap on your smart watch or Fitbit and let's kick some adulting butt.
We're in this together.
This blog is a glimpse into my crazy life as a twenty-something female entrepreneur navigating life as the co-owner of a mother-daughter business. Things get pretty insane, but we make it all work.
