On a night like this

I have gone from pretty damn comfortable to a working mom-of-one who is striving to make things work in her favour in quite a short time so some things are a bit difficult for me to understand or accept now. For example why I can’t just go to the movies if I wish (the cinemas in Lagos are permanently blaring and babies might be at risk of permanent hearing loss) I wish I were joking. Secondly why I can’t just spend a little money on something selfish like sushi or a pair of shoes I’ll never wear. Thirdly the fact that I have to be at home from about 7pm or 10 if I’m being a daredevil. I guess now, I’m responsible for more than just my life, my safety, my wellness and my interests. I have to feed, clothe, cuddle and chastise a little one who I care the most about so it’s a pretty serious job. When I think of it like that it’s easy to understand but sometimes I just see a picture or two of things I can no longer indulge in and I seem so far away from what I was and who I used to be. I’m happier now and I’m healthier now, so I definitely isn’t a fair comparison. I care about me more now so I guess I have a o work on getting that mulah and getting back to the same level of comfort I was at. So there really is nothing to miss after all
