I used to believe that adults must feel different in the way they handle life. Adults must be way more confident in the way they carry themselves (which I guess is true in a way), they don't get stressed about certain situations, and know what they want all the time.
I cannot say that I feel very different than when I turned 18, and I am so grateful for that. Not that I don't want to get older or wiser (which I hope I am getting wiser) but I am in the part of my life where I know who I am, I am comfortable with that and I still feel so free. It is because of my lifestyle as a freelancer, or the fact that I do not have children yet?! Maybe, but I am not thinking too deeply about it.
HOW TO KEEP FEELING YOUNG?
Go on adventures and be spontaneous. As soon as a mundane atmosphere sneaks into your life try to break it and do something you have never done before, or something that might scare you! Life is all about exploring the unknown and looking for new things to discover. This doesn't mean you have to go away, or spend a lot of money; it can be as simple as exploring a new part of your city, going to the zoo, or seeing a play. Ask a friend or your partner to plan something you both have never done before and take turns.
It is never to late to start exploring, it is never to late to feel vibrant. I look forward to many more adventures and I will always be the person around friends to encourage taking risks and do something a little out of the ordinary. Before moving to Berlin my life was pretty ordinary, but since then my husband and I started taking risks and have taken some pretty unexpected steps in our life, but this is what make has made our lives so memorable over the last years.
