From childhood we’ve been sold on waiting for our ‘prince charming’. The order has typically been graduation, marriage, kids and a successful career. I remember wanting to be married by 24, having 2 kids, a successful career all before turning 30 fast forward to today, I’m in my late twenties, not married and no kids either. Should I pause my career too because I haven’t found a husband?
Absolutely no way
Many of us want to get married and start families but if that hasn’t happened yet life should go on. As we grow older we realise we have passions and dreams. Start that business, climb that corporate ladder and be the best you can be whilst waiting.
You have a unique purpose
We all have a unique path, the world is waiting on you to unleash your greatness so there is no time to pause or slow down. You’re your own person and your partner should compliment and support you. Spend your ‘single’ years finding out your purpose.
Enjoy your current season. Pursuing your career gives you the opportunity to make money, travel, shop and the freedom to do whatever you want with your money and time. Things happen at different times for different people, don’t compare yourself – life isn’t a competition.
YOU are important and matter. Invest in your personal development and become the best version of yourself. Pursuing your career or entrepreneurship goals will help you grow and become mature. You’ll learn problem solving, communication, teamwork and adaptability which will probably become useful later when you’re married.
