"That horrifying moment when you're looking for an adult, but you realize you are an adult. So you look around for an older adult. An adultier adult. Someone better at adulting than you." — Unknown

If you're like me, sometimes just the smell of coffee is enough to get a pounce in my step let alone taste it on my tongue.

Often I don't get that fix until later in the day and when I do, I savour it. It's my treat and my moment, its ME time.

If it's not coffee, it could be tea, exercise, the morning paper, chocolate, a great book, lying in a park looking up at the sky - whatever it is, we all have something that gets us through the day...to get us through adulting.

There is too much emphasis on how to be an adult at times, let alone how to be a responsible parent. On top of this we are terribly time poor, more now than ever. Adding to the pressure is the multitudes of hats we wear. We can lose our identity quite quickly and the innocence of being.

This gives more reason to take that time - your time, to recharge the batteries, savour that coffee, take a breath of fresh air. It's amazing how much we can accomplish when we reward ourselves, no matter how small.

Enjoy your day! Have that coffee, or whatever it is that keeps you going in this grown up phase called 'ADULTING'.

Love, light & snuggles :)
