I think most people see me as someone who has my sh** all figured out, but the truth is, I’m just winging it – my life, my eyeliner – everything. So if you’re sitting there reading this and feeling like a fraud because you’re just playing things by ear as well, please know that you’re not alone – most of us are hot messes on the inside even if we look hella put together on the outside I can promise you that much, but let me tell you, you’re probably doing *way* better than you think you are… read on for six sure-fire signs you have your sh** together (even if it doesn’t feel like it).
Six sure-fire signs you have your sh** together, even if it doesn’t feel like it:
1. You have a roof over your head (and pay for it)
Whether you can afford a mansion in the upper east side of New York or a two bed terrace in Queen’s – that’s besides the point. Flying the nest is a scary (and costly) thing to do, and for that you deserve a pat on the back. Never underestimate the value of your name on the bills.
2. You clean up after yourself
If you’re the one that’s doing your cleaning and laundry (and yes, taking it to the laundrette to have someone else do it sort of counts) – snaps to you sister. You’re doing yourself some hardcore adulting!
3. You can cook something other than toast
If you opt to get up in the morning and make smashed avocado with a soft poached egg on toast that’s good enough to Instagram instead of eating cold, leftover pizza, good for you, girl! Turning down take-away leftovers is a challenge in itself, never mind making something worth eating or Instagramming so call yourself your Momma – she’ll be *so* proud!
4. You can handle your alcohol
If you can go out after work for drinks and make it home a) alone, b) in one piece and c) remember doing it the next day, well done you. It’s harder than it looks, I know!
5. You drink coffee and actually like it
If you drink coffee on the daily and it *doesn’t* have to be pumpkin spiced to be drinkable, you’re well on your way to becoming an adult. You know what they say, a girl who drinks some coffee and puts on some gangta rap can handle ANYTHING.
6. You Netflix and chill (for real)
And last but not least, if when you say you want to Netflix and chill you mean you want to watch Netflix and chill and not, y’know, have casual sex – your sh** is sure as hell together… well it is if you can watch an episode or two without wasting your life away in front of the box, that is!
