Grown Up - Shmown Up

Although being a kid was fun, I couldn't wait to be a grown up. Now I wish I could go back to the simplicity of being a kid.

I have had my taste of independence and although I love being in charge of my own life, I am not loving all the responsibility and stress that comes along with being a grown up.

I guess it's true, you always want what you can't have. Dang it!

I know I am not the only one feeling like they are drowning (whether it be in debt, responsibility, to-do lists, schedules, etc.). So if anyone can give me any sort of insight on how they manage, I am all ears (or should I say eyes).

Well, I think the best motto is to make sure you're doing stuff that makes YOURSELF happy! Jobs, relationships (friends and family), making sure you have enough time for yourself. Don't overdue our to-do list! (looks whose talking, right? haha) Really though, I think keeping it simple is better. Have two things you want to get done a day and stick to them. Read the 4 Hour Work Week! Put $$ away each pay check. Even if it's only $20. It adds up and later down the road you will be happy you did! :)

I just want to be a kid too. At least the easy parts, like money! ha and working because I thought it was fun, not because I HAD to.
I uesd to let things pile up- and I really try to not let that happen now. That has helped a bit with keeping things from getting too stressful.
