#MEExposed: The Reality of it all…
I can’t remember having a clear concept of what adulthood would be like. I was told “It gets better.”, but I for sure now know that it doesn’t get easier. There are some very special moments in my life I would give money and a time machine to go back to, and others I would avoid like the plague, but one thing I know is that this adult life is real.
Finding a balance between being careful yet open, optimistic but not jaded, a dreamer yet practical. This definitely isn’t easy. Most kids don’t have to think about anything but eating, sleeping and playing, and I guess that’s just how it is by divine creation. I on the other hand have leaks in my roof and a fridge that lightening decided to malice and take out. My roof leaks in the best of locations like over my bed and in my small office workspace. My fridge now is about room temperature and I’ve had to toss a few things that I like, but hey, they say “That’s life”.
Outside of the weird and random things that happen, then you actually have to navigate people and their lives and desires. Their feelings, opinions and other thoughts. Here I thought I could hide in my house or in some secluded cave. I have to be a family member, a friend and a responsible person with ambitious desires. I think finding a simple, easily-pleased rich woman would have been an easier way out.
But you aren’t to complain because what you have is way more than what others have. Seems like there is no winning, cause that may also be true.
So at the end of the day the reality of it all, is that we need to be become filthy rich…nah, I’m kidding. We need to take life one day at a time, because no matter what curve balls it throws us, we can only do as much as we can in the moment. This current moment. It’s all we have. So take a deep breath and do all you can. It’s all you can do.
