Contribute to the World
A true grown-adult is also someone that is seeing the bigger picture and contributing to the world rather than taking from it all the time. Go out there and live, get all you can, and enjoy it! Just don’t forget there is so much to be done. Coach a team, write a letter to your local congressman, donate to a relief fund, serve a meal on Thanksgiving, or buy someone lunch one day. Grown means you are grown enough to help someone else too.
What about you? How do you know you are grown?
