How to Know When You've Started to Grow Up

1. You're no longer indestructible.

In the past I use to believe that nothing bad would every happen to me. The faster I drove and the more reckless I acted didn't really matter. It's not like anything bad would actually happen. Now that I'm starting to grow up, I realize that I was dumb. Bad stuff can happen. It can also happen to me.

I'm not going to say that I've completely slowed down, but I do try to wear my seat belt more...

2. Life really isn't THAT short.

It's not. It's long. It's really, really long for the most part. All of the quotes and sayings and whatnot that say, 'life is short, live it to the fullest,' I get it. But let's be honest, the average person lives like 80 years and that's A LONG TIME.

So, yes, live live to the fullest, but also enjoy it and take a nap. You've got a lot of years left.

(God willing.)

3. Staying in on a Friday night seems like a great idea.

I've had the revelation recently that being at home on a Friday night isn't the worst thing to ever happen to me. Though the busier I am, the happier I am, I'm also learning how to unwind when I need to and sometimes that means a movie, wine and staying in on a Friday night. Especially when it's cold outside.

4. You start out a sentence, 'remember when...'

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Remember when you didn't say remember when?

5. You get on to children who aren't behaving.

We have a pretty flexible work environment and sometimes those with kids will bring their kids to the office for a little while if school has been let out early or if it's summer vacation. It doesn't bother me because all of the kids are pretty well-behaved. One day, two boys were acting up and running around the office a bit, when something happened and I quickly snapped my fingers and told them to stop running.
Stop running? Really? I've become that person.

Apparently I have.
