I think the most difficult lesson I’ve learned in my 30’s is that growing up and being more responsible doesn’t have to mean giving up on your dreams and selling yourself short. The struggles are a little more painful, the pressing concerns a little more mundane, but amazing things are still possible in life. In some respects, they’re more possible then they were when I was younger.
I need to remind myself of that more often. Life is too short to let it be unremarkable.
