Today when my 8 year old cousin was playing football with his friends he came running to me and asked me to tie his shoe laces. He was in a hurry and was super impatient. I couldn’t explain to him that I don’t know how to tie shoelaces. He wouldn’t even wait that long. Of course he just assumed I know how to because well, I am an adult. So I didn’t even try with my explanation and quickly bent down to tie it. And I did!!!
Throughout the day he came running to me to do such tiny things for him and even though I wasn’t sure if I could, I just tried. I tried because he wouldn’t have my excuses and because he looked up to me.
Life won’t have any of my excuses either. And I am looking up to me. So I guess that’s how I can become a functional adult. By trying.
