Sometimes growing up can be tricky with not really knowing what to let go of and what is valuable forever.
I did this funny thing called grow up, but you know what's even funnier—how it didn't seem like I was growing up at all. Little by little it just happened.
It really is difficult to tell when the scales were tipped, but I believe it could possibly have been the first time I decided to not go outside to jump on the trampoline when everyone else was going. It truly could be when I gave my Barbie collection away when I went into sixth grade because "I am too old for Barbies now." Or maybe it was when I finally stopped dressing up for Halloween (last year). Maybe it was when I had to say goodbye to my parents.
But then again, it could possibly have been the moment I decided not to run after the boy I like, realizing that he will come to me when he's ready.
