The best thing about being an adult … well, actually there are a quite a few things to add to this list. But it all began with a singular retort from a loved one when I asked them what the best thing about being an adult is. “Nothing! Ha”.
Wrong, loved one, you are so wrong.
Let’s begin with chocolate. Because all good things start with chocolate.
When you’re an adult you are totally allowed to eat as much chocolate as you wish. In fact, you can eat chocolate whenever you choose. A big fat Dairy Milk for breakfast maybe? Can’t do that when you’re a kid!
Then there’s the whole freedom of choice. When you’re a kid there are laws and rules and parents that generally say no to everything fun you want to do. But as an adult, you get do most of the things you dream of. Want to go wandering around the world? Do it. Want to stay out all night and come home with the sunrise? Do it. Want to go to a restaurant and only eat dessert? Do it.
Sure, there’s the whole responsibility thing that comes with being an adult. But I feel that too often we get bogged down by all the responsibility that we forget all the freedom we have. It was the one thing I looked forward to as child. I couldn’t wait to be an adult so I had the freedom go, do and be whatever I wanted to be.
The best thing about being an adult is freedom and choice.
We all have it and we all should make the most of it!
