Sleeping in looks like…
Q. What is a dream you’ve let go of?
Having biological kids of my own. I’ve been blessed to be an aunt, godmother, dad’s girlfriend/stepmom, dog mom, and friend. But when I was younger, I definitely wanted to have my own children. Time and circumstances and my own choices have made that less of a possibility, and it’s just not in the cards anymore. And that’s ok.
Sure, I’ve had those pangs of regret and ‘what if?’ They usually come when I see a person of a certain age teaching a child how to ski or ride a bike; when I hold a sleeping baby; when I see kids proud to share something new with their parents. But the pangs pass. And I enjoy sleeping in. So I’ve let that dream go.
