Strong-willed. Driven. Opinionated.
These words have been descriptors of me through my whole life (along with funny and good hair 😊).
I stand strong in what I believe, trust my gut and instincts and am confident in the decisions I make for my life.
I never dreamed of having kids or envisioned children in my future. I remember being younger and telling my mom that and asking if something was wrong with me. I dreamt of travel and excitement and freedom.
A part of me thought it would change as I got older, met a partner and “settled” down but that never came. I would see children and think oh they are cute but never a draw to have my own. I would have terrible dreams of having children. To be honest the thought of having children felt debilitating and suffocating.
But still I left the option open and then one day it hit me.I have been intentional with my life and its focus throughout my entire adult life. When I want something, I make it happen. From going to a major university out of state to living in NYC to traveling the world to successful careers indifferent industries.
Why now would I not trust what I want for my life? It had served me so well and given me so many incredible experiences and people in my life. Why was this different?
Because even though I knew what I wanted, everything around me showed a different future. From friends to media to social norms. And then all the “What ifs” full of fear and regret.
Ya’ll this is no joke.
It’s a personal and multi-faceted decision and while I was almost always certain this is not what I wanted for my life, I know many women don’t feel the same way and are feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed by this decision.
