Today's topic for the blog everyday in May challenge is to tell everyone your favorite thing about adulthood. Interestingly enough, the first thing I thought of when I heard the words adulthood and favorite thing, I instantly thought of freedom. As an adult I find the freedom to be my favorite thing about it. I am not talking about freedom from lock-up, or freedom from strict parents, I am talking about freedom to do what you please, when you please, without the questions (well most of the time, that is). We all know freedom as an adult only goes so far, but there is a lot more freedom then when you were a child.
When I was going through the motions of what my favorite part of being an adult was, I constantly thought about the bills and how that sucks. Because if you had parents like mine, they tried to warn you, but you didn't believe them. Oh how I would go back to being a kid just so I didn't have to pay bills. :P
Then I thought about the bigger picture, and that is how I came up with freedom as my favorite part. I thought about the freedom I have to decorate my own house how I want it, without having to consult my mother. Or the freedom I have to walk around my house in my under garments with out having to watch out for others (I don't do it often, but the thought that I can, is awesome, hahah :p). Those little things, contribute to why freedom is my favorite part of being an adult.
Of course as an adult we can't run ramped and cause destruction because we are adults, but just the mere fact that we don't have to answer to anyone if we don't want to, is good enough. Of course you have to respect others and treat others how you want to be treated, but it all goes full circle to those little freedom things.
I can go on and on about being an adult and try not to think about all the warnings my parents gave me, but I won't. I will spare you the the long read and the none sense talk.
I am interested to see what you all find to be your favorite part of being an adult. Please share in the comments below. I would love to see what you all come up with!
Until Next Time,
