I sit on my couch and realize I have accomplished my main goals in life. I found a job I'm amazing at and I haven't allowed it to consume me, fallen in love with a man who loves me in sweatpants and no makeup, and I've changed the world by having two wonderful children!
Many have probably never thought of having children as a huge accomplisment, but as I sat one day watching my newborns sleep I came to the realization that they are the future. Thus, if they are the future of this world I just changed the future by having them. It is truly a wonderful feeling to know that you have a greater hand in the future than just what you achieve during your lifetime.
Now I don't mean to believe that one of my children will be the next president of the United States (although we all hope), but that I will raise them to feed the homeless, believe in faith (hoping they believe in God as well), and putting 110% of themselves in everything they do.
I can't wait to see how they grow.
