There is so much to say about growing up. The words that were written on the board pertain to these 3 words.
To be a grown-up you will have to make personal strides, decisions will have to be made & your independence will be granted because of the choices you’ve made toward this.
You’ll have to give yourself space to grow, learn from your mistakes, build yourself up when you fall/fail, allow yourself to be vulnerable, and start from scratch more than once.
So get back up, dust yourself off, turn that frown upside down,, realize your faults, accept what is, and needs to be done to be considered an adult. And allow yourself to have some fun, to be curious and your inner child (ember) will spark & create a flame.
