Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up. It is rewarding to be self sufficient, responsible and willing and capable to make your choices, yes… but you have a lifetime of taxes, wages, liabilities and responsibilities ahead of you.
Enjoy what you can while it lasts. It is true when they say you can never get those years back, before you know it, you’ll be truly all alone – and all you have is your own back.
Treasure it, be silly, make memories money can’t buy. Find pleasure and meaning in things that don’t involve money if you can, it’ll be something that will be forever priceless and timeless.
