So I have been a little MIA for a couple of weeks – with good reason.
I unexpectedly have the opportunity to be home with my daughter full time with a further opportunity to figure out what I am actually supposed to be doing with my life. The one thing that I do know is what I am NOT supposed to be doing. What I am not supposed to be doing is sitting at a desk being miserable, stressing out over clients and people that I have absolutely no control over. Then getting in trouble because of things that I don’t have control over.
In the midst of all of that … I turned 35. Yes … 35. I am not disappointed at where I am at this juncture. I have my own home, I’ve met some wonderful people as of late, and in lieu of that, I have become completely comfortable in my new space, in my new city. It took a year, but I did it.
The best part of being 35 – is definitely being a mom. Having kids are not for everyone. I honestly don’t know how folks handle having more than one. I have to say that even though things haven’t gone the exact way that I planned. I am happy. This is not to say that people don’t annoy me because they do. It doesn’t mean that I don’t have bad days – I definitely do. The difference now is my peace.
I don’t let things get to me. I get annoyed at first and take the day to digest what is bothering me. If it bothers me enough, I will speak about it and get what I need to say off my chest constructively. (Let us save what that means for another post shall we?)
I am going to take the opportunity to move full speed ahead on discovering what my purpose is. I am going to take a class. I am going to attend church how I wanna. (Never had the time before) I am going to love up on my daughter. I am going to keep getting clients and work on my business and get into this second stream of income. I am going to meet new people. I am going to blog. I am going to cook real meals for my child. I am going to work on my book (which is for you guys) I am going to LIVE!
This is an opportunity for me to have what I truly wanted. MY life on my terms. At 35.
