Dear ten-year-old version of myself,
Today I ate an entire yellow bell pepper for lunch because I’m an adult, and I can do what I want. There are some real advantages to this growing up business.
Don’t get me wrong, the dire stories you hear about responsibility and paying bills and doing taxes are real. They are not fun.
But a big piece of adulthood is the freedom to arrange your life in a way that makes sense. In a way that is meaningful. In a way that includes ice cream for breakfast and a terrible stomachache by 10 a.m. that you and you alone are responsible for.
It’s worth it.
In the meantime, we’ve GOT to talk about that haircut…
