Happy--I Think

I gave up on some of my dreams.  Maybe that's not the right way to phrase it  I altered some of my dreams.

I was going to be a wife and mother.  I wasn't sure what kind of wife I might be, but I was going to be an amazing mother.  But it wasn't in the cards.  That man who was to be my husband never materialized.  Or he never met my standards.  Without him, the whole mother thing was off the table. Oh, there are many amazing women out there who tackle motherhood alone.  And they do an incredible job.  But that's not me.  I could be an unbelievable mother, but not by myself.  Not with the career I have and the way I chose to make it happen.

But other dreams are alive and well.  I may have even reached a point where I have obtained most of my dreams.  So much that other dreams are beginning to stir within me.  Dreams that have the possibility of coming true.

It's safe to say that I have reached the point of happiness with my life.  And I am thankful for that. But I am also thankful not settling.  

Yes, I am happy.  But I also believe there is more happiness yet to achieve.
