I remember a few years ago (more so when I was a teenager) I had a mental list of where and what I would be doing now.
I'd be a successful career woman, with a corner office with a view. I'd live in a lovely 3 story house in Westchester. And of course I'd be married with two kids.
If you know me now, that is obviously not my reality. I live a freelance life. I live part time between my apartment and my gma' s in Harlem. And I don't have anywhere near a Bae. And I for damn sure don't have kids. To be honest I kind of, no, I really like my current reality.
Growing up a lot of my generation was told to get a good job, a house and mate and life would be grand. And without it, our lives wouldn't be of substance.
But what if we told our kids that if you just trust the timing of your life, everything that you can ask or think of can come to fruition? My life has been so fulfilled with friends, family among other things that I couldn't really see a life with the typical white picket fence.
My time to be in love and eventually complete the circle of life will come. But not today. And I'm completely okay with that.
