Of course when we’re young and have kids we have all these ideas of what our life will be and then we grow up just as much as they do, we stick to the daily grind, pay our bills, emotionally support our families, raise our children and then when our time comes we’re completely different people, stumped on what our next chapter will be.

I wish I had realized that then as much as I do now. I might have been a bit more prepared for when the time came at the same time I think I like the idea of being clueless and allow life to take me wherever it may go.
