Both represent two conflicting parts of my personality.
One, the desire to be grown up, sophisticated, well groomed, mature and most importantly attaining perfection. Just like the regal brand of Hermès.
On the other hand I want to be free, fun loving, full of life, crazy, unpredictable and most importantly bubbly and relaxed just like Fanta Orange...
It is hard acting grown up, when in your heart you are still a kid. We all try and pretend that the allure of playing fairies in the garden is above us. But it is not. Being young at heart is a privilege. Something we take for granted in this adult world we are forced into when we are not ready.
I was so lucky growing up. I had such amazing friends. We honestly had such fantastical childhoods. And, I think none of us have fully managed to let go of what once was. It makes it hard for us to fully embrace adulthood. Hence, probably why we all still so nuts. Audrey, Husband, Posh and Ex-pat, this one is for you:)
I'd like to think that even though I don't know which personality I lean towards, that I at least act like a kid with style. Maybe that is the trick here. Not to be one or the other, but why the hell not both. Because I don't think we ever really grow up.
Mantra for the day:
free grown up
So whether today you are leaning towards being young and carefree,
remember that, you should never neglect the urge to be a kid. Dive bomb in the pool, eat too many sweets, fly with the fairies and have a fabulous weekend.
