Yes, My Goal Is To Become A Housewife

Yes, I Want To Be A Housewife

I don't want to waste my life working a 9 to 5 I can't stand.

I've always grown up and watched the women in my life work their booties off to help bring food to the table and represent good role models to me. For as long as I can remember I've always wanted to be the wife who brought more than just good looks to the table, I wanted to make money, and contribute to the family income. I wanted my kids to see how important it is to work. That being said, I have begun watching much more reality TV, particularly "The Real Housewives" franchise, and seeing the lavish lives they live got my brain thinking.

Nothing seems like it could top living in a big, fancy house with your golden retriever and kids chasing each other around while you sip on a mimosa, texting the ladies in your book club about how great you think the book is so far. Does it make me shallow to wish I could live a life in the future just like that? Maybe, but I don't care what others think.

I don't care if I'm the richest woman on Earth or hardly keeping my head out of the water. Knowing I can maintain my home exactly to my standards is something that excites me. I don't see any shame in judging women who want to be housewives and stay at home moms. We may begin our lives wanting one thing, but this can change over time.

I think I would probably get bored to a certain extent sitting around at home. I know I'll want to join a book club or a philanthropic group, and find little DIY things to do. I could even try and a find a bit of a side hustle to do to bring in some extra cash. You don't have to work to be valued in society, it's not meant for everyone. Some people are meant to spend their time raising their kids with their full attention, while others can manage it while working as well.

I like the idea of giving my whole to the home, and not to a 9 to 5 I'll never truly care for. My dream is to be a novelist, and what better way to work on that than at home, and not working at some random establishment hoping I can fit in a few hours of writing before reliving the same day over and over.

We all walk the steps we are destined to walk. Maybe I'll find a dream job, and not be the housewife I secretly want to be. Maybe I'll find a rich husband, or win the lottery, and be able to be a housewife and stay at home mom. Either way, what's meant to happen will happen, and I know I'll be happy wherever I end up.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

Why I Appreciate My Parents So Much

This is for my two biggest supporters.

One thing I've noticed, the older I've gotten, is how much I appreciate my parents.

We've become so close, it's almost funny to think at one point I looked at them so much differently. When I was younger, my parents were much more strict than they are now. They disciplined differently and didn't let me do certain things. The older I've gotten, the more freedom I've gotten, which is one big sigh of relief.

My parents are such great people. Throughout my whole life, I've always had friends of parents or people who know my parents tell me how great they both are. I'm so blessed to have been raised by them and to have gotten their characteristics.

My mom is so loving and generous, and she thinks of literally everyone else in her life before herself. She's smart and funny, and she is always there when I need someone to talk to. She's taught me how to be courteous, kind, funny (with her sense of humor), and most importantly, accepting towards others.

The older I get, the more I realize how similar I am to her. She's my favorite woman in the whole world. We understand each other.

My dad is a thoughtful, hilarious, wise, and helpful guy who has taught me so many lessons throughout the years. He always makes sure my finances are in order, even more than I do. He keeps me laughing with his funny stories and made-up songs that he sings. He always asks me how my day was every time I walk through the door. He is so adorable and thoughtful, and I'm so happy I got his wit and humor.

His smile lights up a room and I'm so happy I've been hearing his laugh and will continue to for the rest of my life.

Another great thing about my parents is that they've taught me what love looks like. They're so loving, kind, and patient towards each other. I've rarely ever seen them fight in my life. They still treat one another how they did when they first started dating. I have friends and know people whose parents aren't together, and I'm so lucky to say I can't imagine what that's like.

My parents complete each other; they are soulmates. I'm so lucky and appreciative that I get to have the honor of watching their love play out throughout their lives.

I'm so happy and thankful that these are the parents I ended up with. They're the best. I hope to be half of my parents when I become a parent myself.
