Still Don’t Feel Quite Grown Up?

an adorable dalmation“Was I the only woman in the world, at my age—and after a lifetime of quite rampant independence—still did not quite feel grown up?”

—Dodie Smith

Dodie Smith was an English novelist and playwright. She is best known for her novel The Hundred and One Dalmations. I don’t know about you, but Cruella de Vil scared the crap out of me when I was a kid!

This quote is from Dodie’s novel, The Town in Bloom, published in 1965. I love this quote and, in my late forties, feel exactly the same way—not quite grown up. How about you? Do you feel grown up? What was it in your life that made you feel grown up or makes you still feel like a kid?
