You’ve just completed your high school education, thrilled to finally be starting your real life. You add a couple more years of university to that and you just can’t wait to work in your field. Something you’ve been dreaming of, for years. While working hard at university you still get to enjoy 3 to 4 months of vacation every summer, almost all of your weekends off, without counting all the stats holiday that you get on top of that. Like the perfect working schedule! Then you find your first job and you HIT a wall, badly.
You hit a wall because for the first time in your entire life you won’t have all this time you used to have for yourself. All those summers, the weekends, etc. All that time you use to have to chill, or if you’re like me to travel and explore the world for a couple months every summer. Well, that time is slipping away. It’s over. Now all you have is 48h every week to put your life back in order, before returning to work. Because that’s pretty much what weekends are for. Oh, and I was going to forget if you’re brand new to the marketplace you also get vacations. Yay! 2 generous weeks off! Oh really? Wow, that’s incredible! #Not
All I do right now is thinking about my life and what it has become. I am evaluating my life quality, my envies and asking myself where I want to be in the next 5 years. I can’t help but wonder why we haven’t created a “better system” for our self. Because let’s be honest, most of us are looking for a better life. Isn’t it why the #SlowLiving movement is so trendy these days? I do think so!
Sometimes I feel like we went from a stay at home wife to business woman, without really asking our self if this made sense for us; as a couple, as a family and for our future. With all these new opportunities as a business women, we are constantly compromising on our lifestyle. Which leaves us with poor time for our love life and for our family. And after all, we, as humans, are the one suffering and not the society. And then, you’ve got to ask yourself who you’re living this life for? Certainly not for your boss hey!?
So here I am facing all these issues, trying to understand what my future is going to be. And I am a little bit scared. I am scared because I want to be a successful woman, but at the same time, I feel like I am running out of time and all I have is a job, a boyfriend, and a blog.
And I can almost hear you telling me; “Just wait when to have kids, then you will be really running out of time.”.
Exactly, that is scaring the caca out of me. Because I want to have a little babe too.
So, I am asking you, as a busy mom, how can you make everything happen in one day? How do you maintain a balanced lifestyle while keeping a smile on your face and sleeping at night?
I tip my hat to you.
I am 27 years old, no kids, a job, a boyfriend, a blog and I am tremendously running out of time.
Am I the only one feeling this way? #lolz
