Women who don't have children, want them.

Women with children, don't feel like children are a necessity. Joy yes, but not necessary.

Not to mention, someone fixes everything at the drop of a dime.
Women with an apartment, want a nice house with a yard.
It would be nice to have some privacy and maybe a dog to run around in the yard.

All too often, we live our lives looking into the lives of others. We want what they have. We want their job. We want their house. We want their car. We want their man. We want their life. It is nice to strive for something and have goals in life. Goals to reach and achieve or get certain things in life, however we all must keep in mind that in time all that is supposed to be part of our lives will be. Not to mention, often times we as humans think we want something that someone else has when we don't truly know what it takes to have those things. We don't know that in that marriage, there can be abuse. In that house, the home could be close to foreclosure. In that life, it could be full of turmoil followed with a smile.  It could also be full of peaches and cream. One will never know.

What we as humans, woman or man, must take into account is that there is a reason why you are where you are. There is no reason to look at people and want what they have.  Be thankful for who you are and where you are in life. You are there for a reason. 

Personally, I feel like I am not where I want or need to be in life in both my professional and personal life. However when I scan back through my life, I've encountered and recovered from quite a bit. Each day, I share with others, I learn that all that I have encountered in life has made me an outstanding person. A person who can be outstanding in whatever comes in my path - professionally and personally. I know that what I have dealt with in my past and what I am dealing with presently, is preparing me for something. I am equipped with some knowledge that I've gained mostly through life experience and I can finally say that I am thankful for such experiences.  Therefore if I never get to some things in life that I want to do, it is okay because I've still been given some serious greatness. 

In life it is cliche to say never judge yourself against others, but the message can never be said enough. Live your life. It is uniquely yours. Embrace your life because one day your life experiences may be able to help someone else along the way.
