Obstacles when growing up...

I was thinking about how difficult we find the amount of work we have to juggle this year. I then realised it is only another stumbling block and we have been training our whole life for it.

These are a few obstacles I, and probably most of you too, had to deal with when growing up.

  • Getting potty trained (realizing you need to ‘go’)
  • Taking your first few steps
  • Speaking
  • Getting dressed by yourself
  • Wiping your own bum when finished poohing
  • To stop wetting your bed
  • Eating without the help of your mother and without making a mess
  • Walking in your mothers’ high heels when playing dress up without falling down
  • Playing with your mothers’ make-up without getting caught
  • Tying your own hair
  • Learning to write your own name
  • Learning to color in between the lines
  • Learning not to drink your fathers’ beer next to the couch when he is not looking.
  • Learning to ride a bicycle
  • Had to learn the hard way that when mommy says no you can run to daddy!! ;)
  • Realising your to big to fit in the trolley
  • Realising you are too big to get carried around anymore, from now on you have to walk everywhere (Darn)
  • Having to get up early and deal with the sand eating freaks at the nursery school.
  • Getting up for primary school
  • Getting into clubs when not 18 years of age yet. :-O
  • Getting your drivers license

And now…
  • Getting through Btech (Joke)

Even though we are almost finished growing, we will always stumble upon a few more obstacles as we go along. It will never stop; in fact, the obstacles will probably keep on getting much larger as time passes by. They are part of life and molded you into who you are today and you will become.
