Emerging Adulthood

We're all just taller children, we're all just taller children...

Adulthood is slowly creeping into my life.

There is a job description sitting in front of me -- it's for the Case Manager position at Hillcrest Transitional Housing.
It is MY job description.
Holy. Crap.

It all happened so fast. Within a day I went from a 22 year-old college student with no idea of what the future held, to a full-time employee of Hillcrest. My boss is now my co-worker. I have health insurance, 2 weeks paid vacation, an office, and a business card.

Why, hello, adulthood.
You scare me -- but it's a healthy fear...I think.


On another note, I attended a beautiful wedding this weekend and got to spend time with some of my most favorite people. We danced, laughed, drank, enjoyed each other's company, cried with goodbyes, ate gluten-free food, and were merry. It was perfect. And it made me excited for our futures...together.


We're all just taller children, we're all just taller children,
in the end.

Peppermint

Sometimes, in the midst of the craziness and pain of life, I am sent small reminders of cherished times. It is in those reminders that I find just a taste of the peace my life is currently missing and am reminded of the joy of which my life is full, even though I'm currently blinded to it.

Those little things are what I cling to during weeks like this one, when life is beating me down.
I will not be overcome, this too shall pass.
My life is full of beauty, even when I can't see it.



So, thanks, Kels...I needed that reminder.
