I have begun to realize that I have yet to begin my life; everything up until now has been practice, as if I have been in a cage and it is only now that I am beginning to break free and do things for myself. Now I come to a crossroad in my life where I choose what to do with my future, choose what will make me happy. I must work really hard to give my kids a better future so it will be easier for them to concentrate more in school, because without education there's really no future for anyone. I will only accomplish my goal in being happy when I am able to live my life for myself and still able to provide love and support to others. This includes graduating from high school and college,and finding that perfect job. I want to be satisfied with my decisions, to be able to accept and forgive, and most of all to be able to live up to the expectations I have for myself. My plans for the future is having a great job with a loving family who's willing to support me in my good and bad times. But now I realize that there are so many other steps I need to take in order to achieve these so-called goals.
