It is the 52nd edition of the ladies of hive community contest and members of the community are asked to participate by answering one of two questions and I chose to answer the question “Are you who you want to be and did you dream of being something else?”

I spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out an answer to this question and no matter what I put down, it didn’t seem like a good enough answer, and here’s why.

I wouldn’t say I am who I want to be because I spent a lot of time while growing up imagining where I would be at 23 and right now I am not where I saw myself if I was being truthful.

I always thought that after graduating from university with a good grade it would mean a good job and some level of comfortability and even until two years ago, I was always very optimistic about certain aspects of life, and right now I wouldn’t say I am pessimistic but I am more of a realist.

I am currently working a job that I would say a million times that I hate and my life isn’t what I would consider comfortable at any level so clearly, I am not where or who I want to be right now.

I also dreamt of being married at around this age because I wanted to have my children young and be able to experience marriage and motherhood early but right now I don’t even see marriage in my plans because of how much my mentality has changed towards life in general.

I still do believe that I might not be who I want to be right now but I am who I need to be and eventually my dreams and goals would come true even though it might be taking some time.


Thank you for opening this box of passion

I love the way you ended it. The world is changing and things arnt always as they used to be. We have to adapt to that change and hopefully we'll be able to achieve our goals.

I believe in you and I see you believe in yourself too.

Good luck!!

Adult life has only just started, many bumps in the road that we never envisage when younger.

Hope things change to enable you to find who you really want to be soon.

Yeah, I never expected adulthood to be this way.

I guess I am learning a lot and I also hope things change soon.

... I want to be right now but I am who I need to be...

I see myself in your writings sometimes and you capture my thoughts exactly. I like how you ended it, with HOPE. Keep fighting for the reality of your dreams! 😊

You have received 5 LADY(LOH) tokens for entering the ladies of Hive contest.

Please note that since our LOH token is still so new, that it will be worth more if we HOLD them for a bit before trying to sell them. Some have been trying to sell them immediately after receiving them, but holding them for a bit will help them to increase in value! We are working behind-the-scenes to try to keep the price stable, but the "sell orders" are hampering the stabilization of the price of this new token. Please hold on to your tokens. Thank you! 🙂

Tenga en cuenta que, dado que nuestro token LOH todavía es tan nuevo, valdrá más si los MANTENEMOS por un tiempo antes de intentar venderlos. Algunos de ustedes han estado tratando de venderlos inmediatamente después de recibirlos, ¡pero retenerlos por un tiempo les ayudará a aumentar su valor! Estamos trabajando entre bastidores para tratar de mantener estable el precio, pero las "órdenes de venta" están obstaculizando la estabilización del precio de este nuevo token. ¡Considere esperar! ¡Gracias! 🤗

You could still have your children right now.

It all comes to pass. There's no need for timelines and unnecessary pressure on yourself.

I can still have them but I don't think I want them as much as I did in my head years back

Very powerful words. We don't always get what we want when we want it. But if we keep pushing we will eventually get it, and it may even be better than we expected.

Very inspiring words

No worries. You took a detour, but the journey will be even more enjoyable eventually and there is no destination in life, even if we make one, we arrive and find a new destination to move towards.

I need to stop being so hard on myself and start using the words "I am just taking a detour".

Thank you for your kind words.
