Well today we celebrated my youngest sons 1st birthday, I have 2 children a now 1 year old and a 2.5 year old. I And still young but the thought of getting older scares me to think about. I’m not worried about grey hairs or wrinkles I’m worried about when we grow up and my boys are at school and then high school, uni or take or working then moving out of home. I know you are probably like its years away but time just goes so fast! It feels like only yesterday the I still lived with my parents as a teenager. I feel like I really want to learn and appreciate life everyday and that I don’t want to waste it but I just get stuck in the same old same old routine every day. I am a SAHM and as much as I would love to work I also look after my husband who has a disability. It’s so challenging and tough but you do what you have to do. However somedays I just feel like I’m getting nowhere and I’m achieving nothing. I’m growing older and I don’t want to waste life, I don’t want to ditch my family I want to love and appreciate them more as I do life but I suppose the question is is finding out how. I want more. I’m passionate about having more, doing more, achieving more. Life is only short, you are lucky if you live 80 years on average. Don’t waste it. Xx

  • So true .. Enjoy your family and kids and life the best way you can ..


  • Make the most of all the mile stones, and once the kids are at school you can do more by helping out in class every week and at the canteen. If you have a chance you could even do a course by corraspondence( but this might have to wait till the kids are at school as you have your hands full). Make the most of all the good times and be you dont stop wanting more for any reason its good to want more without that its hard to achieve.


  • Maybe you need to find a personal hobby or regular social outing.
