50 Questions Challenge, Day 25: Do you think you can be completely satisfied living where you do right now?
I think so. I am not materialistic. I find happiness in the simplest of things. When I had a child, everything about me has changed--my priorities and perspectives in life. When I was still single, I just do whatever I want--taking little consideration about the people around me. When Lance was born, I had a 360 degree shift. Everything that I do now is for him and seeing him happy is what brings me much joy and contentment.
I was asked a while ago a classic question of who will I save in case the boat will sink--my son or my husband? I said, my son. Of course at this point, it is all about my son. He's too young not to be taken cared of. I did not choose to save my husband (if I have) because I know that he would want me to save our child--there's no doubt about it.
I have dreams for my child, although I am not sure whether those are his dreams too, seeing him develop his full potential and creating milestones on his own are enough for me to say that I have given him the support that he needs. In that, I am contended and completely satisfied.
