The question Mr. Pancakes asked me recently was “how can you realistically do all of that?”
What he was referring to included how can I:
- want to relocate states?
- buy a house?
- have another baby?
- give my full attention to Baby Pancakes?
- give my full attention to him?
- Save more money?
- Loose weight?
- Train for half marathons?
- all in less than two years?
And my answer to all these questions was: “YES I WANT IT ALL”.
In my family, i was raised to believe that there is nothing you cannot have or do with hard work. Therefore, i live my life believing that with hard work and dedication and lots of prayer, there is NOTHING i cannot do. My husband on the other hand was raised more practically and sensibly.
I believe as a woman, I can have it all. And when we truly believe this…we can have it all.
There are many women who are living proof that we can have it all.
Everything and anything is possible.
And a lot can happen in three months, six months and one year. Again with hard work and dedication, there is nothing we cannot do.
Especially when we put our minds to things. I truly do believe that once you come to “accept your reality everything falls into place.” That’s a quote from the last season of Sex and the City and it’s definitely been one of those quotes i always go to…because it’s soooooo true!
For example…the moment i acknowledged that i was lonely and alone was when God brought Mr. Pancakes into my life.Therefore, why shouldn’t i acknowledge my shortcomings and also dream big and want all that this world has to offer for me.
My husband is always supportive…but at the same time, where i am a dreamer and optimistic…he is definitely more practical and provides me with reality checks most of the time. Which is a balance i think i need in my life because i can make everything and anything work in my head.
And when it blows up in my face in reality…i am very good at adjusting. Mr. Pancakes on the other hand would rather avoid all that. Hence, the difference between man and woman/Mr. Pancakes and Mrs. Pancakes. I would say that’s why we work so well together. After all…we marry our opposites so that we can work on what we are lacking/missing. At least that’s what i read somewhere.
But honestly we should live our lives dreaming unlimited. We shouldn’t confine ourselves to just one thing…or one experience…we should want more at all times. We have to be practical of course but always live and dream big .
And that’s a balance i am finding in wanting it all…
Question of the Day: As women, mothers, professionals, can we have it all?
