“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind”.
I’ve surely left my childhood behind (Why?). Expectations from me are high (Why?), and I fret a lot about what lies ahead. A lot. Especially since now I have about 6 months to decide what my career is going to look like (Why?) and I am not even close to reaching consensus (Why?). That’s scary. I’m 5.5 feet tall- only if I’d grown proportionately enough in mind, life would be easier!
Because adulthood is somewhat terrifying, I envy babies. Okay envy may be too harsh a word to use, but you get the point, right? Babies are not expected to particularly think or make life altering decisions that will profoundly impact the remainder of their lives. They’re only expected to stare at you with their big googly eyes and laugh their adorable toothless cackle, and clap like a retarded seal. This doesn’t take much effort and they look so adorable! Hence the bitterness and jealousy.
Weirdly refreshing to know that what looks now like this-
This young me makes me envy myself, LOL. Staring at my own googly eyes I wonder, what the hell went wrong? Where my googly eyes gone?
