So You Think You’re Adulting?

Dear She’s Fit To Lead,

My manicure‘s chipped.

My pedicure’s worse.

I carry my stuff in a ripped, worn out purse.

I’m skipping my workout.

Yup, the one that I love.

My night time companions are named Hershey and Dove.

I stay in the office until incredibly late.

I don’t see my friends.

No time to date.

On weekends, I’m literally too tired to move,

And yet I keep pushing, cause I’ve got something to prove.

But as I pass out while watching TV,

I ask myself, “Honestly is this how it should be?”

She’s Fit To Lead, please tell me.  You won’t be insulting.

Is this life that I’m leading really adulting?

So here’s what we think, and it’s just our opinion.

The life that you’re leading isn’t fit for a Minion!

You need to find balance as hard as that is.

If you’re not good for you, you’re not good for the biz.

Of course do your work.  We know you’re a star.

But find time for some fun, don’t forget who you are.

The one thing we know beyond any doubt,

if you don’t get some balance, you’re gonna burn out.

Start now! Make this weekend especially yours.
