I am that age in life when people start to look at you funny. “You’re almost twenty-seven and have no kids? Why aren’t you married?” It is also interesting that these statements are usually said by strangers in passing conversation. It may seem old-fashioned, but I know many women who start to feel worthless if they are unmarried or childless, at my age. The big “30” is three years away, and I feel no pressure. My beautiful god son has bought a lot of joy to my life, and I know someday I will be blessed to be someone’s Mommy. And a great one! For now, I have decided to live for me. To some, a relationship is their entire existence. Sadly, I have done that with every relationship that I have been in. I must admit that I am in love at this moment in my life, but I have goals completely independent from love to achieve. I realize that everything that I want will come with a struggle, and each time I must react with strength and class. If my mind is feeling cloudy, I sit down and think. I am no model Christian, but I still continue to pray. Becoming an adult has been a trying process and I finally see the sacrifices that my mother made during my childhood. Working hard must pay off because that cliche’ has not failed me yet. I am feeling positive this morning! Be happy..
