#05 Little Kids

When one becomes an adult, the worries start to pile up: work, family, money. The responsibility of “being” someone useful feels a bit heavy. Heavier than that blanket-cape you wore when you were a kid, while pretending to be a superhero. Back then, nothing in the world constricted you; you could be Superman, a grocer, a pilot. Even with the swimming goggles you used as substitution for aviators, in your own mind, you were someone important. It’s crucial to keep that same confidence within, because at the end of the day, only you can be truly proud and happy with what you’ve done with your life.

    this reminded me of a grey’s anatomy quote:

    Remember when you were a kid and your biggest worry was, like, if you’d get a bike for your birthday or if you’d get to eat cookies for breakfast? Being an adult? Totally overrated.

    I mean seriously, don’t be fooled by all the hot shoes and the great sex and the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. Adulthood is responsibility. Responsibility, it really does suck. Really, really sucks.

    Adults have to be places and do things and earn a living and pay the rent. And if you’re training to be a surgeon, holding a human heart in your hands, hello? Talk about responsibility. Kind of makes bikes and cookies look really, really good, doesn’t it? The scariest part about responsibility? When you screw up and let it slip right through your fingers.

    I like this, Rosa. It reminds me that if I didn’t feel proud of myself then who would?
