I can’t even explain how fast I clicked on this post! I feel this so much! Growing up is so sudden and I’ve found that it doesn’t happen the way we might have expected it to when we were kids. There are so many moments in my experience where I’ve felt like I was a newborn baby and others when I felt like a wise old woman. I’ve gone from student to adult with a 9-5 job and responsibilities back to a student and the greatest thing I’ve learned is perspective. Fortunately, we don’t have set goals of what makes us all “official” adults, we always have a chance to learn and grown and even though that’s super scary and intimidating – it’s also one of the best parts. You’ll find your footing soon enough 🙂
I’m super excited for you Barbara! Just like Grace said, you looked amazing on your first day and I bet you’re kicking ass and taking names. You got this!
