For the last decade, I have been working really hard for myself.
I have always told myself that I need to be diligent to have a “better future“. It’s the reason I work late nights, I study hard, learn new things and grab every possible opportunity for personal and career advancement.
However, the truth is that future has actually been vague.
I have never really defined it well.
Sure. I am now married. We live in a nice house. This could be the better future I have been asking for, right?
Well, no. It does not feel like it.
That all changed in November 2021.
That was the month I knew my wife is pregnant. We are going to have a baby. I am going to be a father.
Things started to change. My perspective started to narrow down to creating a better future for the family we are building.
I guess this is what fatherhood does.
It gave my hard work, diligence and perseverance a whole new meaning and purpose.
This is clearly the future I have been thinking about.
This is the future I want.
And, this is the future I am looking forward to building and improving on.
My wife is now 6 months pregnant and I couldn’t be more excited.
Fatherhood, here I come.
