This Is What Adulting Is All About

As you get older, the more the small things in life bring you the most joy. Think about that feeling of pure weight being lifted off your shoulders as you take your first breath after filing your taxes. Or what about allowing your body to naturally wake up at the ripe hour of 8am without a startling alarm blaring into your ear, through your eardrum, and shattering your soul?

There are so many more blissful adulting scenarios. Let's explore one here.

It sure doesn't get any better than accomplishing your laundry and being able to wear your favorite clothes, only to dirty them again.

But shhh — we're not dealing with that just yet.

This is how I dance when I put on my favorite summer dress fresh from the clothesline. It makes me feel like I can do anything in life, like I can accomplish anything and everything I set my mind to.

Now that's powerful.

I guess this whole adulting thing isn't so bad after all.

Ah, who am I kidding. Wake me up when it's retirement.
