You Don’t Have to Do That

I don’t know if you get this vibe from me all the way through your computer/mobile device, but I’m a goody two shoes. I mean, I try to be a rebel and all that, and I really do not like to be told what to do, so I try to resist. But it doesn’t work out. I get uncomfortable when I don’t use the crosswalk when walking across the street. So, now you’re getting my vibe. 

But no matter who you are, a goody two shoes or a rebel, if you’re 18 and older, that means you’re an adult. And I have a secret for you. 

You can do whatever you want. 

Yes, yes, as long as you pay your bills and go to work and blah blah blah. 

But other than that? You can do whatever you want. Wanna buy stuff on QVC? Do it. You wanna drink wine and eat chocolate for dinner? Let me grab you a glass. You don’t feel like doing your laundry? As long as you have clean underwear, it can wait. 

Because you’re an adult. This is your life and you can fill it with as many things you want or as little as you want. The point is that as a kid, you lived by the rules and you had a lot of them. But now? You make the rules. So, don’t feel bad about breaking one or two of them every now and then. 

But just in case you don’t really get it yet, here’s a few more: 

  1. Friend asks you to hang out? Don’t have to go. 
  2. Don’t feel like staying up until midnight? You can go to bed. 
  3. Wanna put some weird art up in your bathroom? Can’t wait to see it. 
  4. Need a hair cut? Do it yourself. 
  5. Want to start a blog? Come talk to me.
