Sometimes I think I am a little too impatient for the next chapter of my life. I want my own house now. I want us to have a better car and, be at that point in our lives where we financially stable.

I know this will happen. I just wish it was sooner rather than later.

It's hard not to compare yourself to how well other people seem to be doing in their lives. I always have to remind myself that we are all on our own paths and, each path takes a different route.

I know that some people may look at me and, I think I am doing better than they are. I am fortunate to be in a position where I can afford to rent and, go on decent holidays. Just sometimes it doesn't always feel like it is enough.

This year I am trying to take a step back and just appreciate what I have got and, how far I have come so far.

I know I've got a long way to go, but it's a marathon and not a race and, all the things I want will happen when the time is right.
