Discover The Hidden Mask Behind Adulting

Adulting (v): to do grown up things and hold responsibilities such as, a 9-5 job, a mortgage/rent, a car payment, or anything else that makes one think of grown ups.

Everyone uses this word nowadays! When it’s being expressed, especially as Millennials, we usually express it in a negative tone. For example, “Damn, I really don’t want to adult today!”


“Adulting” is like a wild fire that keeps getting bigger and people just keep getting lost in.

Heres is how to change the game of growing up, Millennials.

Do you remember you when you were maybe around 5 years old and everything you thought about the world?

I was the girl who tried to make everyone smile and would always find new things that interested me. I was an explorer of my own mind and nothing about that has exactly changed. I never wanted to do something I wasn’t passionate about and living an average life was never gonna be in the books for me. From singing karaoke for the first time, dancing to music I loved the beat to, and believing I could have been a mermaid. I still believe extraordinary is out there.. Even if I don’t know exactly what it is.


Adulting is secretly leaving one of the best parts of you behind. The dream, the passion, and the endless possibilities behind the younger you. If you were talking to you as a 6 year old, would you let your younger self down?

If you can’t remember who you wanted to be or what you wanted from the world then forget about what the world told you to be and dig deep.

Children want to believe they will take on life and always be successful. Which is never always the case. Life happens and you learn a long the way. But, remembering the key dream of what your success may look like is sometimes the missing piece you need in order to get there.

Don’t get lost in the wildfire of adulting, have a wilder fire within.


Love you, later.



Note to Millennials: The world won’t pave your way to success. Make it.

  1. It is sad that a lof of us abandon our dreams once we become and adult. I have been trying to figure out how I can go for the things I once wanted when I was little. I like you never wanted to live an average life. I’ve really been exploring with trying new things lately and that is one of the reasons I started a blog.

  3. Love it! I also don’t like how “adulting” is perceived as mostly negative. Being grown up is not all bad! You have money to spend, you can travel, if you’re lucky you love you’re job — it can be a good thing 🙂
