17 Ways You Know You Have Your Sh*t Together

You make your bed. You're basically a superhero.

1. You're on time.
Your time is valuable and you know that's true of other people, too. Plus, it's just respectful and the sooner you're done, the sooner you can get home and watch Pangako Sa 'Yo with your cat. #winning

2. You have a pet.
Congratulations: You're able to keep another living being alive! That makes you more responsible than 80-percent of the world's population. (Please note: If it's not a pet, it is very possible to have your shit together if you can keep a plant alive. That might even, arguably, be harder than say, a hamster.)

3. Your friends are truly supportive and you truly support them.
Your relationships are all healthy because you've cut out all the dummies who made you feel less than. Now your squad is thick as thieves and ride or die. You sincerely want your friends to be happy and you'd pretty much do anything for those fabulous witches.

4. You can do things by yourself.
Whether it's dinner or a wedding, you can fly solo and not worry about looking like a desperate loser because you know you're not one. Plus, who knows what interesting (read: hot) people you can meet when you dare to step out by yourself?

5. You take care of yourself.
You make sure to get some exercise most days and you eat well because you're a grown-ass woman and that's what grown-ass women do. (Of course, that doesn't mean you don't lay on the couch and watch the Kardashians all day whilst tearing through a bag of Cheetos, but you know. Being lazy supports your mental health!)

6. You don't mind staying in sometimes.
Yes you have FOMO. Fear Of Missing Out on doing your evening restorative yoga, having a mug of hot cocoa, and going to bed at 10pm.

7. You make lists and you complete the items on said lists.
You don't wake up at 5 a.m. in the morning panicking because you just remembered you have to walk your boss's cat (she's weird) and now she probably crapped all over her living room. Yay, you!

8. You make your bed.
Your hospital corners are on point and you could never be one of those people who sleeps with clothes piled on top of it like a boyfriend who doesn't exist. *sad face*

9. You secretly judge people who send wedding presents weeks/months late.
How hard is it to just pick something off the registry? 

10. Your finances are in order.
From balancing your bank account to filing your taxes, you have it all under control. And it's not just the big stuff—you save money because you're good about finding ways to cut down on spending. The stuff you do spend money on is super worth it and helps you feel even more efficient. 

11. You know when to say no.
Whether it's not making a purchase because money is tight this month or abstaining from your second cousin's third wedding because you just can't travel right now, you know how to decline with class so that you can stay sane.

12. You let things go.
So your man didn't clean the bathtub exactly like you would; you understand that different people do things different ways and you don't always get what you want. You know that throwing a tantrum over the shampoo not being in the right spot helps nobody, least of all you.

13. You don't sweat finding a significant other.
I mean, please. He or she would be so damn lucky.

14. You sit down when you eat.
You don't stand over the sink, shovel an entire bag of cereal into your face, and call it dinner. You know you don't have to set the table, but you also know that sitting down and taking a second to enjoy your food is one of the great pleasures in life. I mean, it's FOOD.

15. You know how to make a few signature dishes.
You might not be a master chef but you have mastered a few dishes. Like, seriously, your white lasagna is to die and you can even pair it with a bottle of wine! Of which you have several. Such an adult.

16. You can have people over and not be ashamed of your apartment.
You don't have to hide a mountain of garbage and seven random piles of crap when you have some friends over.

17. You care about what others think but it doesn't determine your self-worth.
You're not a monster who runs around peeing in office trash cans because "screw it, I gotta do me!" but you're also not someone who only does things to please other people. You know, because you've got your shit together.
