Being a single parent does not have to be a death sentence. It is more common today than you might believe. And it does not have to be as hard as you might think. You need to get the most out of life!
There is a lot of help out there if you know where to look and are not afraid to ask. Do not let pride keep you from getting help that can make your life exponentially easier. I got pregnant when I was 20 years old. Here is what I told myself – I worked two jobs ever since I was 16, so I figure I paid enough INTO the system that it could help me out for awhile.
Now, I am the mother of a single parent. And where I only had one child, she has two. Although the situation is not ideal, it is definitely not hell. I see it as an opportunity, an opportunity to share my experience. I have gone through the struggles….and I survived!
My goal here is to provide that experience and add resources as I find them to help other single parents. I am also going through new experiences with my daughter and will share what we have learned through these trials. The main thing I want my readers to remember is: You only get one life. Are you going to spend it worrying about what you do not have, what you have to do tomorrow? Or, are you going to spend it enjoying your child(ren), experiencing the joy on their face when they learn something new. There is too much in life to be happy about to dwell on negativity.
