“Don’t try to squeeze everybody into your little box. And don’t allow anyone else to cramp your style.”
We may have always said this to ourselves over and over again. But sometimes we still become discontented and tend to compare ourselves to other people. Often times we feel insecure because we don’t have physical, emotional strength, prosperity, fame, or intellectual traits that some people have.
I was a bank teller for almost six years. I had miscarriage on my first baby and my doctor said I have a bicornuate uterus and there was a slim chance for me to have a child. So she suggested me to give up my work and have full rest. Now that I am a single mom with my two kids, my relatives who are professionals now sometimes tells me to go back to work. I was indeed thinking about it but I had second thoughts. After what my kids have been through they need more of my time and care now.
Some of them would suggest for me to have a business of my own and to do things or to do that grrrrr...I do accept advices but I dislike people trying to manipulate my actions. I am a person who has always been open to change but as of now my kids are one of my top priorities . They need healing and with it comes my care and attention at this time.
Certainly, all of us should be open to wise counsel. But I also believe that it is still our choice. We are all free to run our own race.
Yes, sometimes I would envy my relatives and friends having their own salary where they can buy and go anywhere they want. I would look back and remember when my career was on its right track and have regrets of resigning because I was about to be trained as a bank cashier back then..But now one thing that I realized, there is no sweetest and most noble job of being a Mom..A single Mom. When I will leave this world, my two kids and future kids will be my legacy. As a Mom I feel it is so important to raise them to whom they should be and to give them all the love and care that they deserve to have.
I may not have the highest paid career, I may not be the world’s best mother, I may not be a perfect lover and I may not be a woman whom everyone wishes to be... Yes, I am Not Perfect..But still I am determined to adjust and be the best that I can be most specially for my love ones!!!..I am a Mom and if this is the profession that God has intended me to have now, as far as I am concerned, I’m number one and I know I am doing the BEST that I can!
God has His own individual plan for each of our lives. Just because something works for somebody else doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work for you. I believe each of us have been given different task and mission in life.
Let us all learn to run our own race and quit looking on what everybody else is doing. We can take pride in ourselves without comparing ourselves to anybody else. Let us be the best that we can be on whatever field we are into, then I can guarantee we will feel good about ourselves!
I have a lot of imperfections in my life and even if I want to be the best..I still fail a lot of times..Lord I am just me..I commit mistakes..I am humbly bowing to you now..Please help me change to the person you want me to be..You alone Lord knows my heart..even if I seem to fail there is only one thing I am sure of..I LOVE You Lord,my Kids and Quiet Angel So Much..Please Take Care Of Them.
