Finally Realized.

I was talking to my mom the other day and I told her that I felt bad about my life because I felt I had not accomplished anything and am almost 26.  It took this talk with her to realize I have done a lot with my life.

She pointed out that I am 25 and work for a corporate office from home, with good pay and benefits. I may have not finished college with a degree, but I have gone back and am now working on it. I have a beautiful 2 year old and am a good mother and wife.  I have my priorities straight and know what I want.  This makes me accomplished in life.

After this talk I went to Target and who was working there?  One of my best friends from high school.  She had gone away to college and graduated with a bachelors degree, and she was working as a stock person for Target.  That really made me feel accomplished.  You don't have to have a degree to have a good job, you just need to work hard and get noticed.  I didn't start at the top, I worked my way up.  I started as a receptionist at a branch level, now 4 years later I work under the 3rd in command in corporate.  I am lucky. 

 

I am still working on my degree though.  This isn't what I want to do for the rest of my life, but I feel good about it right now.

Me too, I have started smoking again after quitting for two years and this is my one great achievement of my life apart from having a baby.<br />

I hate myself more than anything and have to give up again whilst being in the most stressful time of my life!<br />

My baby is 4 months I am fresh out of hospital for Bipolar, Manic Depression, livinig with my mum and dad whist visiting Perth! We live in Bangkok and being so far away just broke my heart so much our planned trip became a sudden emergency flight back for doctors, pills and all the stress added to it.<br />
