All of us have stages in our life that are given high priority. Whether it’s college, marriage, or children, our focus is more narrowed than at other times and we find ourselves involved almost to the exclusion of everything else.
Marriage. Getting married is a huge decision, one that takes planning and preparation. Often, we forget about the emotional changes we’ll be making in favor of the wedding dress, or we are worried about sharing our new space, instead of just sitting down and talking about it. When it comes to getting married, the wedding might be the most beautiful thing this side of the Caribbean, but we can’t forget what living with our spouse actually means. Conversation is key.
College. When it comes to attending school, we soon realize the choice takes money and time. It isn’t easy to make the time to travel to your local college or university. It may not be possible to schedule your day around the classes offered, and you may find that the cost far outweighs the reward. For these reasons, you may decide on an online college experience at your university of choice.
Children. Having a baby takes money and maturity. It isn’t easy getting up in the middle of the night to nurse a sick child when you need the sleep. No one really knows how to take care of a child until they have one, but quick understanding comes if the parents are wise enough to listen to parents and friends who’ve already had children.
Life stages are important in any life, and it’s important to remember to give them the high priority they deserve.
