These last few weeks I have been taking some serious inventory of my life and were it's headed. I'm less than two months now from delivering my second child and I'm wondering if I'm going to be in over my head? Honestly, am I going to be able to function with 2 kids under the age of 3? Some of my family have already made it feel like I'm going to be serving some kind of prison sentence.
They've said things like 'Oh you're really going to be stuck in the house now,' or 'How do you plan on going back to school with two kids?' I've even been told that I'm living my life backwards. The proper order should have been finishing college, living on my own for 5 years, establishing a career, get married, wait another five years and then have kids. Like really who came up with this life sequence?
I don't feel like I'm living my life backwards. Everybody has their own unique path that they must follow. I've come to realize that having two kids at the ripe age of 25 is not a death sentence like most people try to make it seem. It was getting to point where I was actually starting to believe these people's mindsets. Well, I have snapped out of the trance.
I can and will prove to myself and these naysayers that I can still set out to accomplish everything that I want. Just because they feel as if they had kids too young and didn't go after their dreams doesn't mean that I have to use the same excuse. I am stepping my game up and making big moves. I am on well on my way to being a mogul and achieving all of my dreams.
I say to any and everyone reading this that you are in charge of your destiny. God gave us all free will for a reason. Use yours to go after what your heart desires and improve your station in life. Use it to become the change that you want to see and be. Don't buy into the nonsense that people will try to sell you about you not being able to do something because you have too many kids, you're too young ,etc.
You can be and do anything that you put your mind and best effort into. Take inventory of your life, your mindset and your actions. Then make the needed changes and get to living your best life today!! I know that I am!!
