I'm Just Getting More Awesome

A quote my roommate showed me says the following, "Everyone I know is getting married or pregnant. I'm just getting more awesome".

Everyone I know is getting married or pregnant

We both laughed at it and some of you even liked it when I posted it to my facebook. It seems like every week that sentence becomes more true. Really. It's an explosion of sparkly rings and albums of monthly pregnancy progression. I love it. I really do but I guess it's a little difficult to understand sometimes why that isn't my life. That's what I thought it would be, you know, married by twenty-one to my prince charming and by now there would be a kid or two in a little house with a picket fence and I would make fresh baked pies every other day. Okay, well maybe not the pies part but you get the picture. So maybe that dream didn't make the time limit but all the other parts are still possible... someday. It's just what to do while you're waiting for that dream to come true.

I'm just getting more awesome

The clear solution is to get more awesome but sometimes we get stuck waiting. The way I see it, we can let life happen to us or we can make life happen. I tend to let it happen to me but therein lies the mistake. Awesomeness will only come by making the most out of whatever part of life I'm in. Maybe where I'm at isn't what I thought but making the most of opportunities and impoving myself is how I'll face this stage of life. So in the mean time, I'm going to develop my talents further, finish my education, discover who I am and become the person I want to become. Obviously there are some things I still need to work on and hopefully as I do, I keep "getting more awesome".

... And you can too!

The only thing I would change about the statement would be to add those few words. The great thing about getting more awesome it that it's not limited to just a few. It's possible for everyone! We should always be changing to become better. So whether you're waiting for prince charming to come along or anticipating a new addition to your family or whatever stage of life you find yourself in, you can still become more awesome too. Come to know yourself, the truly awesome person that you are and be happy with that with no matter what is happening in your life. You're potential is limitless and remember... you are awesome.
