So today I decided I was not going to worry about those pesky adult things we do to make it feel like we have used our time wisely when we have free time. You know what I am talking about; washing up, making the bed and collecting the abandoned socks your partner leaves around the bedroom. No not today, today it was an adulting-free zone. I decided it was about me, myself and I.
Why do we always feel guilty for not doing things all the time? I can feel so guilty at times for not using my time wisely that it makes me anxious. Why can’t we have a day where we just stay in our pj’s and do absolutely fuck all without feeling guilty? What is that? Where does that guilt come from? Being an adult should mean being able to do what we want, when we want.
I want to start an adult revolution. I want all of us adults to find a day whether it is once a week or once a month or even once every 3 months where we have a guilt-free non-adulting day. I am not talking about a self-care day or a day off, I mean a day where we eat cereal for dinner, stay in our pj’s and dance in the kitchen to your favourite songs. A day dedicated to doing things that make us happy and not what is practical and using time wisely.
Today I played video games, ate junk food and didn’t do one small chore because I needed an adulting free day. Being an adult comes with stress and responsibilities, and it can feel like we are constantly thinking about things that we need to do or trying to do the things we need to do. We are constantly assessing our ability to be an adult by those things, so don’t we deserve a non-adulting day!
So think about it and join the revolution and have yourself an adulting free day!
