When did life get so complicated?
When I was little I used to dream about being a grown up!
It would be amazing! Id have a fantastic job as an air hostess a lovely home and beautiful garden with the perfect husband and children!
We’d have blissful, stress free days out! Enjoy holidays abroad and exploring new places.
Of course we’d have time to enjoy ourselves as well and go out socialising with our friends to quint little wine bars!
How does time end up passing by so quickly without us even noticing?!
How do we not have the time to do all the things that we wanted to do and the things that we had planned to do for so long?
How did we end up making the mistakes that we made?
I guess there are a lot of things that can get in the way of ours dreams.
Meeting the one, health issues, children, money.
I often look back and think about what I missed, what I could have done differently.
|That's me on the left!|
I wish I had spent my time more wisely whilst in school and actually studied harder than I did and got better grades, especially in maths!
I wish I had pursued my cabin crew career further. Although I have been cabin crew it didn’t last as long as I’d have hoped due to my airport not being very busy and not having the need for an extra airline. I suppose I could have always moved further afield to have continued but at 18 I was scared, scared of moving away from my family and friends, and everything I knew to be supporting myself on my own.
I returned to college in my mid twenties desperate to make something of myself but again things got in the way. Well, this time it was love.
I met my now husband and after a whirlwind romance we found out we were expecting our first child.
And whilst I would never in a million years change what I have now, I do think I would have done things differently if I had another chance.
I would have stayed on in college and completed my course then have had my family. I would have saved my money and not taken out credit cards instead. I would have gone out with my friends more and holidayed with them.
I have such high hopes and dreams for my children, but I guess as a parent we all do the same for our children, and hope that they don’t follow the same route that I did.
I guess I am also a little scared about what the future may hold for my daughter and my son, maybe this is natural? I don’t know but I do know that I will encourage them to pursue their dreams at all costs and lead them away from their mistakes.
