I don’t think you become a grown-up.
I think it’s something you feel. And as time goes on and the years go by, it’s something you begin to feel more often than not.
And sometimes you feel grown-up not because it’s your birthday and you know you’re another year older, but on a Thursday afternoon as you leave for work.
And maybe it’s because you’re finally learning how to dress appropriately for the weather, or because you’ve spent the past hour running errands. Hell, maybe it’s because of the sound your boots make.
Or maybe it’s because you really feel happy and together, and it’s something you’ve been feeling more and more.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that the same sun rises every day. And it rises all over the world at different times and looks different for different places. And it’s been doing it since the world was created, and will go on doing it until the world ends. And that a sunrise can turn the world bright and orange or soft and pink. And it’s never going to look the same way twice…


Weekends are for exploring.
For long drives heading to the country or the coast. For hidden walks and beautiful vistas that take your breath away.

Weekends are for catching up with friends.
For going to cafe’s and drinking coffee while talking about nothing and everything with the people you love.

Weekends are for falling in love again.
With yourself. With people. With the world. With the feeling of being alive.

Weekends are for living.

because nothing starts a day better than coffee with friends.

Seriously, I don’t think there are many more achievable ways to make what would normally be a hum-drum day better than starting it with breakfast with some good sorts.
Though setting the alarm over an hour earlier the night before hurts more than you could know, it always ends up being worth it. Without fail. Every caffeine fuelled time.
There’s just something about drinking coffee and eating carb-loaded croissants with the people you love that sets you on a high, that with a little bit of work can be maintained for the entire day. You’ve talked and stuffed yourself and laughed into your coffee more times than you care to remember (and embarrassed yourself in front of the cute barista) and all before 9AM! I can’t even achieve that much in 24HRS on a normal day.
So give it a whirl. Meet up with a friend before work. Rue the coldness as you wakeup, but be refreshed by the smell of coffee and carbs. Laugh so much you get the hiccups. Spill your breakfast on your clean outfit. It will all be worth it. It makes the 9-5 life that much sweeter.

Sometimes, I want to see
Every beautifully sad movie there is
To listen to every piece of music
That is a work of art
To read every poem and book
That will help me understand myself.
That in all the beauty and art and poignancy
I’ll recognise something inside of me
And it will all make sense
