14. i was single for a long time and fulfilled. very happy.
my mom said she wanted more for me. what more? i am happy. but but but, i will be more happy. happy is happy, i was happy then with what i had.

i like married life and thrilled i had two kids. i am happy now. no more happy than i was prior. and really had nothing ot do with career.

if i were to divorce hubby tomorrow and on my own the rest of my life.... i would be happy. fulfilled. content.

others dont make it for me. i do.
