What job do you want to do when you grow up? How often were we asked that question throughout our childhood? From a young age, we were brought up and educated to believe that once you left you left secondary school, you would then progress to university, and then once you earned a degree, you would find a job. Life was always painted out to be perfect, mapped out beautifully that we would find the job of our dreams, we would buy our own house, we would get married, we would have a family, and we would live happily ever after. A few years into adulthood, we soon realize that life is nothing at all like how our parents and teachers hinted it would be. It's bad enough that we suffer through relationship break ups, and we seriously struggle to make a life for ourselves financially, in our early adulthood, but the worst part to it all is, the job we have is far from enjoyable and satisfying, as we were educated to believe it would be. So here we are, finding ourselves trudging off to this crappy job that we hate, five days of the week, with only the weekend left to enjoy. Then, as the years pass by, we do find that partner we end up marrying, before starting a family with them, and all of a sudden, the weekends we once enjoyed going out with our friends, becomes about sitting at home changing dirty nappies, listening to temper tantrums, and attending children's birthday parties. Don't get me wrong, raising a family is one of the greatest blessings in life, and spending time with them forms some of the most wonderful memories, but it's a far cry from the freedom we once had in our late teens, and early twenties, going out clubbing with our friends, and leaving the worries of the world behind us, to drown in the alcohol. It's certainly a change in lifestyle, but it's not the weekend that's our issue, as we still enjoy that time with our family, it's our life during the week that sucks!
