Once upon a time I wanted to lead a cosmopolitan lifestyle. I wanted to belong to the throngs of the rich and famous and attend glamorous parties. I wanted to wear beautiful gowns and have my hair and makeup done by the best of the best. I wanted all these things.
But then I grew up. I had children and I realized that all those dreams were meaningless. The best thing in life is watching your children grow and become these wonderful human beings that you created and helped shape.
I wonder now why I ever wanted any of those things. They don’t amount to happiness. They can’t complete you in any way. They are unimportant in the end.
