When my alarm go on, I don't snooze. I get up, feed the cats, clean their sand, then brush teeth, shower, shave my legs and armpits.
Today while I was on the metro (tunnelbana, in Swedish) I was thinking that growing up was not an easy thing. Hahahaha don't grow up guys ;)
In my family I had to fight and stand up for my rights, for equality and for being a curious human, for example I was the last to ride a bike because my father taught my brother and depended on him to teach me, but that never happen till my dad realized that my younger sister and rest of my friends can cycle except me.
I was a very quite kid that it was shocking to my family that the quite girl is rebelling against all the rules. I decided to follow my dreams.
I come from Egypt and "NO" my family are not that open minded as many think or might take for granted because of my lifestyle.
Before the age of fifteen I knew that my dream was not to find the Prince Charming but, to build a career, develop my studies and be an independent girl/woman.
Be Bold: Your mind is strong so don't be afraid to say NO. I said that to myself over and over again till I said NO!!
I paid the price of choosing a different road than the traditional one, I was hurt, but I grow up and never regretted choosing that way.
When people ask me, would you do it again if the time goes back?!
YESSSSS, I would choose the same road without hesitation, because every single mistake and every single success built the woman I'm today.
Despite all the moments that apparently made me adult, turning 30 (I'm 32 years old) can be frightening because it is about the "now" or "never" moments.
The age of 30 is when most of people expect you to be a wife or mother, it all about the moment you dress in white.
Being a wife, being a mom, or even choosing to share a life with a partner is a choice and not having kids doesn't make you less. Some people choose to raise kids and others (like me) choose to raise cats and sometimes dogs or even fluffy rabbits ;)
FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF & BE YOU!! J
