There was a time when I would stay up late to read a book, chat with friends, or watch movies. Now? Now I find myself staying up after everyone else has gone to bed just so I can scrub the bathtub and mop the kitchen floor in peace.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, it’s not like someone’s making me do these things: I’m doing them by choice. It’s still not exactly where I saw my future self when I thought about my life 10yrs ago.
On the flip side though I never imagined how amazingly beautiful marriage and motherhood would be, so there’s that. I suppose what I’m trying to say is that life doesn’t always end up where you thought it would, you don’t end up doing the things you thought you’d do and your priorities shift and change in ways you never imagined, but it’s not all negatives. You may know what you want, but that doesn’t mean you always know what you need, and that’s where life steps in and nudges you in the direction you’re supposed to go.
So here’s to taking life as it comes, not letting the setbacks get you down, and reveling in the highs as they come your way!
And if all else fails, at least you’ll wake up to a squeaky clean house and that is a blessing all on its own!
