Done adulting for today. This could be a quote on a mug you use for your daily dose of caffeine. That same mug you hold on to every morning before heading to your 9-5 job or before diving in your morning tasks (quick breakfast, packed lunch for kids, you know the drill).

There are some days we seem to be on autopilot. We plan our weeks well beforehand. We follow righteously our schedule and in the end, there is this sense of accomplishment. The ‘crossing the task off’ feel good factor. Despite that, did you ever feel something was odd? Attaining your goals was rewarding but your mind drifts away and you feel disheartened?

‘Adulthood comes with responsibilities. However we tend to forget that adulthood also comes with freedom.’

The freedom of owning who we are as an individual and crafting our experiences on what we feel is worth our time.

Making space for the unscripted is essential. Those can be little impromptu moments such as heading for a walk, visiting friends, an unplanned road-trip. Anything that triggers your curiosity. On the long run, you will feel reinvigorated because the unknown triggers a new mindset, a new way of thinking and blooming inspirations.
