I regret not having children of my own when I was younger

My secret is that I regret not having children when I was younger. I was always so focused on my career that I lost focus on life. I grew up in Prince George, then moved to Victoria, then came back to Lillooet, and now in Prince George again. My career was more important, no man was ever right for me? Or I couldn’t see myself raising a family with them. Now on lonely evenings I reflect on my life. I don’t know why I waited to get this old and think about being a mother. I know I could adopt, but I want to experience pregnancy and childbirth! My husband does not want any more children because he has 2 from a previous relationship who are all grown up. He wants us to just relax and just enjoy the peace and quietness of the house and life! I just wonder from what noise I should be escaping from. I have never had the crying baby, or a loud toddler. I will be 48 soon I regret waiting for no good reason to have children of my own. I regret I will never have some grandchildren of my own. I regret I would never go out to the Fort George Park with my grandchildren. I regret I will never drive them to school or go to their school plays. Now it is too late.

    There tends to be a lot of things we regret. There are too many things I regret. I think the important thing is to appreciate what you DO have and work with that. Don’t focus or dwell on what you don’t have and make every day worth while.
