So I haven’t done a post in a while so I thought it was about time to do a new one. I have recently been thinking a lot about the future and what it holds for me. Now I turn 28 in July and whilst I know i’m “still young” I can’t help but feel that time goes so quickly it s running away from me. I have always been very open with my friends and family in telling them that I would love to settle down, get married and have children. I have just come to worry that in this generation I may miss out on this.
Our generation is so disposable with the use of apps such as tinder etc. People just look for quick and easy and it feels like not so many people look for genuine and meaningful relationships. I feel like an Odd ball for actually wanting a serious relationship in a “Friends with benefits” world. Don’t get me wrong I have tried the Friends with benefits situation and let me tell you it did not make me feel good, so I have steered away from that now.
I do feel like i’m being left on the shelf a bit because although I say no one wants a serious relationship the majority of my friends are either engaged or in long term committed relationships and some are even having babies so this does fill me with some faith thatI will also have my time.
In finding it so hard to meet a decent partner it is easy to question yourself but i try not to because I know and I am constantly reassured that I am a nice, caring, hardworking, fun, independent woman. I just really hope I find my match in the next few years as my desire for a baby is increasing by the year specially working on a postnatal ward where I get to cuddle newborns all day.
I have a plan in my had in the scenario that I do not meet anyone and that is to have a baby on my own. That may sound crazy to some people but my desire for a family means that i will go down that route if I have to. It is not the right time now to do it but definitely once i get into my thirties in a few years I think I will be ready.
In the meantime I am going to enjoy my life and have fun making amazing memories with my family and friends. I am enjoying my work, I am going on plenty of holidays and shortly moving out of my family home for the first time which really is exciting, nerve wracking but exciting. I cannot believe how quick this year is going already but maybe just maybe this is my year. Heres hoping anyway.
Have an amazing week everyone.
