Bit #30: What is a Grown-up???

Little Life Lesson and Bit of Grace 30: Being a Grown-up doesn't mean you have all the answers

"There's no point in being a grown up if you can't be childish sometimes." ~Unknown

Growing up, I always thought I would have all the answers. Iwould be so mature and by the time I brought children in to this world, things would fall in to place and I would just "get it." Moms and Dads are supposed to know everything.


The older I get, the more I realize that I don't have all the answers and perhaps as I grow and life gets more complex, I have even less of the really important answers.

Things happen to people everyday that aren't fair or can be explained. People work hard and still get laid off, fired, or don't get to reap the benefits of their labor.

I love this quote above, the more I grow up, the more I want to be a child again. It is so fun and so necessary to give in to some of those childish likes and desires. I think the children actually may "get it" the most. Take some time to watch children and copy their outlook on life...innocence, a great desire to explore the world around them, and they act/dance/do silly things not worrying about how they look to others.

Don't hurry through life just trying to make it to being a "grown up."

As I grow up, I do know that while I don't have all the answers, LIFE IS GRAND!


  1. I don't think I will ever fully consider myself a "grown up."

  2. Isn't that the truth?!! I feel like a little child sometime, and I'm treated that way as well.

    Whitney, I have to share: I was at the movies last night and some lady almost sat on me!!! "oh, I didn't see you there". I could have died, yes the theater was dark, but....Would someone have almost sat on Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn? No! aaarrrhhhh.

  3. I wish I could go back to pretending to be grown up!

    Such a good lesson!
