I recently read this on a great blog:
IF YOU WEREN’T SETTLING, WHAT WOULD YOU FILL UP YOUR FRUIT TREE OF EXPERIENCE’S WITH????
WHAT DO YOU WANT……?
It definitely made me think.
Because I immediately went to children. I want kids. But then I thought, I don’t really want kids right now anyway…I’m just not ready. Then I thought about the farm and lifestyle that I want, and then I realized that I’m getting there.
So here’s my list:
a good man (check)
a good marriage (check)
children, preferably 2
2 dogs and 2 cats (halfway there)
and a funeral like my grandma’s. She had a full house at her viewing and funeral. Everyone there talked about how
much she influenced their lives and helped them in some way.
So the conclusion that I came to is that I’m not settling at all. I’m waiting. I’m waiting for what I want from the man that I want. I love my husband and I know that eventually he will get to the place where I am. So I’m waiting. Because I don’t want the end result, if I don’t take the journey with the right person. It’s just taking him longer than I would like…
What do you want out of life? Are you settling?
