Growing Up Too Fast - Page 2
Until now, those were just vague thoughts about our future. Until now, college was a long time away.
We have four years. Four too-short years.
I'm not ready.
I realize that the reason I got all choked up at the high school today had little to do with my baby growing up and everything to do with a fear for MY future. That empty nest is looming bigger than ever and I'm afraid it will cover a great, big gaping hole in my life. For 14 years, that life has been centered on raising my daughter, and so far, I can confidently say "I've done good."
But now, I think I need to focus a little on me. I need to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life.
Because this one will be over in just four short years.
