Y’all, I’m not gonna lie: August was a rough month. But rough months happen, and I am so glad the month is almost over. I’m in need of a fresh start, and fortunately I’m getting it in the form of moving to a new apartment next week! But in light of trying to find positives even among the most challenging times, for this edition of my Friday Five, I’m sharing five things I’ve learned this month and how I’m going to move forward like a champ.
The Weekly Sip has returned once again, and this week, I’m getting super honest with y’all. Not that I’m not honest in others, but this week’s topic in particular has been floating in my head for a while. I was just waiting for the right time to write and share it.
In this Weekly Sip, we’re talking about something that’s pretty terrifying: failure.
And we’re taking it head on, because the hardest things are best dealt with that way.
Adulting ain’t easy. And it seems to happen so fast: you graduate college (or grad school, in my case) and suddenly, boom, you’re not a student anymore and you have to be a real adult. And now there’s bills and a 9-5 and other payments and surprise expenses and all kinds of other things.
The struggle is so real.
I’m certainly no expert at adulting–is anyone, really?–but I have learned some valuable lessons in my adult life. The struggle will always be there, but there are some things to remember that make adult life a little easier.
