This is so good. I am so bad at comparing myself to others. I always feel like other women my age are far more put together than myself. Funny thing is, I have had friends and coworkers ask me how I seem to be managing so well. Me?? I must put up a good front, because I’m the conductor of the Hot Mess Express that is my life.

I mean, I have a good job, my own place, and stable finances, but my head? Oh boy. I sometimes feel like a teenager that snuck into adulthood and left unsupervised. I’m pretty sure it’s my untreated ADD that leaves me scatterbrained most of the time, but I have learned to manage it for the most part and carry on a “normal life”. Whatever normal is…

So let this be an encouragement to you: If you feel scattered or like life is falling apart, if you worry that you aren’t doing life as well as you should compared to the rest of your generation, take heart — most of us struggle with the same thoughts, and we are all going to be just fine.
