“Being a Mother is not on my Bucket List” (yet)

Today I received some news as to which I am not quite sure how to take. I have been apart from my ex boyfriend of 13 yrs for just over a year now and today I was told by my very good friend that his new girlfriend is expecting his child. I’m not upset and certainly not jealous – as you may have noticed being a mother is not on my bucket list! Oh, and there it is – this is why I love writing -because whilst typing this I have worked out how I feel. If anything the news has made me feel slightly lonely. But I remind myself I chose to stay single, I am not ready to get back into the same old routine with a different face just yet, I want to travel, albeit for a short time, but I want to meet people from all over the world and hear their stories, I want to learn the lives of other cultures & I want to see the wonderful sights this world has to offer & experience things I never thought I would. We all want different things from life and sometimes we have to make sacrifices to get what we want. The news has been a bit of a shock but everything happens for a reason and because he chose the path he wanted, it helped me to take the first step on the path I want to take. 1 month & 6 days to go! πŸ˜ƒ

Hey! πŸ˜„

2 months, 2 weeks & 3 days until I set off on my solo adventure through South East Asia and into Australia. Follow me on my journey and I will share with you how a 31 year old, single, materialistic, friend loving, Prosecco drinker, gives it all up to experience life as a backpacker, fulfil a dream, and tick off more items from her ‘bucket list’.
