So whilst perusing blogs today, I came across one (silly me forgot to save it) posting about so many things to do before her next birthday and naturally I was inspired. there are so many things I want to do, things I suspect I will never do because I lack the motivation to do them.
Don't get me wrong, I get things done, but they are the simple tasks, the things I must do in order for life to function. I do a lot of things for everyone else, but rarely do I do something for me. So I'm doing this for me, because, really, if I'm not happy then what was it all for?
I know that sounds selfish, and partly because it is, but its true. I work 50+ hours at a job, that while I love it, I spend more time with other people's kids than I do my own, that pays me no where near enough for said sacrifice, and I do it because I have a child to raise and rent to pay and a stupid car payment to make every month.
Basically I do it because I have to, because its what comes with the territory, you know, that land mine that they call adulthood. I work and I pay the bills and make sure my daughter has skinny jeans and justin bieber tee shirts and sneakers and food, I do it all for her, so this is for me for once.
so without further ado, 28 things to do before my 29th birthday.
