What would you do if your life depended on it being the right time to have kids? What if you didn’t have a future as a parent? How did you manage to get by anyway? What if everything in your life revolved around having a baby and the thought of leaving your kids in the lurch while taking care of a houseful of nubiles was making you crazy? It’s not as scary as it seems. Being a parent is actually one of the most rewarding and fulfilling jobs we can take up. It’s not always about big bucks or glamorous product launches or even big-time law cases. In fact, for many parents, being a parent is about hosting quality family dinners with pampered pets at home, diaper duty on weekends, caring for sick kids on holidays, and so much more. The best part is that it’s something that anyone can do! You just need to know how and where to look. This is where blog posts like these come in handy!
What would you do if your life depended on it being the right time to have kids?
So you’ve just turned 26 and are planning your wedding. You’re planning out a perfect wedding. You pick up one of your best friends and they say: – “You’re so amazing. You’re such a great person. You deserve to be successful.” – “But how do you plan to do that?” – “Well, my friend, this is what I do!” And so it goes on, and on, and on. You start sharing your dreams and plans and life with your best friend. But then you start to notice something odd. You start to feel a little self-conscious when you see your picture in the paper or rent a movie or open up a book and start to read a little bit more heavily. You start to notice that you’re spending less time with your kids, your friends, and your hobbies. And you start to feel a little bit bad. You know you should be doing more with your life, but you don’t know how to begin. Because you had no idea how to manage your life as a parent! When you’re a parent, everything is different. All your friends are your kids. You never, ever, ever have to take on the responsibility of looking after them. You’re their role model, their hero, and they’re yours. So how do you take that forward, as a parent?
What if you didn’t have a future as a parent?
Just like it’s not a good idea to go to therapy for a mental disorder, it’s not a good idea to have a future as a parent. Although we don’t know why, it might have something to do with how you manage to take care of your kids and make time for your time with your husband or yourself.
How did you manage to get by anyway?
It’s not hard to get by on the outside. It’s just a fact that we always make the first move. We make plans, we shop, we eat out, we’re at weddings, and we have jobs that we love. What’s different about being a parent is that you’re never too busy to get your kids engaged, help around the house, or go to the zoo. Plus, you get to spend time with your kids while they’re young, which can’t be said for other parents when they have young kids! You also never have to take care of your kids while they’re alive. They’ll want you to do everything for them, and you’ll want to do everything for them. So you never have to worry about them running out of your sight or getting in touch with bad influence. You just have time to spend with your family, make time for your kids, and be there for your husband when he needs you.
What would you do if your family was broke and you could only save for one thing?
Well, this is the one thing you definitely don’t want to do. If your family is broke, hit the roof. It’s that easy. But if you know you can’t save for an amount large enough to cover all the expenses of the kids and their family, then say goodbye to having a family for good.
So, you have everything you need to make a successful career as a parent. You have everything you need to make your family proud. You have everything you need to make your kids happy. And you have everything you need to survive. You’ve got it. Now it’s just left to do the hard part. The final push. The final push will get you there. It will take time, effort, and dedication, but it’s worth it. You can’t see this coming, but the time is coming when people will start to notice and appreciate the difference you make as a parent. They will start to ask you questions, they will notice how much time you spend with your family, and they will want to know what you do for them so they can too. You will receive a lot of encouraging and positive comments on your blog posts. So, give it a try. You might be surprised how much you can manage with only a little effort.
