Quote of the Week #20

Growing-up-means-being-honest-quote

I was having a hard time picking a quote this week, but I decided since it is my birthday week and I’m dealing with getting another year older that this was a good quote.

When I look back at being young and how I imagined my life would be when I got older, it’s amazing how different you become from that person. Even my goals from being a teen to a young adult and now a mom and wife.

You definitely become more self aware and I think more confident because you understand what’s really important in life. In growing up I’ve definitely learned how important family is and having great friends. When your young its all about having friends but as you get older you realize its not about the amount of friends its the quality of the friendship.

When I was younger I swore I didn’t want kids and I wanted a career, well that’s not at all what happened. I think the teenage me would die of shock seeing how different we’ve become. I couldn’t be more satisfied with life, being a domesticated goddess and a mom.

What are your thoughts on growing up and what you have learned? I would love to hear.

Linking up,

  1. What a lovely post! I agree, when I was younger, I was a bit idealistic, but as I get older I became more realistic and practical. Beautiful quote, well timed for your birthday. Hope you’ll have a good one when it comes. By the way, Thanks very much for linking up with #candidcuddles for this week.

  2. Happy Birthday!! I have those birthdays that really make me reflect too. Oh I’m so different than I had planned to be. I was going to have a career, no plans on getting married – total opposite is true now. Just goes to show you can’t plan your life out! Thanks for sharing with candid cuddles xx
