30 Day Writing Challenge - Day Ten

"Write about something for which you feel strongly."

Without a doubt, the thing I feel most strongly about is my family. I want the world for them. I lay awake at night day dreaming about how great I could make their lives if I won the lottery or if my novel became a best seller. Pretty much all my fantasies contain me being stupidly rich but in all of them the money is used on others. 

I picture buying our first home and making it perfect for our growing family. No more overcrowding in our tiny flat, everyone would have the space they needed. Plus we'd have stability. No moving around every couple of years, making the kids adapt and then outgrowing the place again. My kids would have a family home they could grow up in just like I did. I hate so much that memories are made in a house and then get left behind. Things like where your children took their first steps or height markings you drew on the wall can't come with you when you move and it's major reason why I want my family to have a forever home. 

I want structure, routine and balance for my family. I am tired of things being chaotic and disorganised. I want my family eating healthy, exercising regularly, remembering to brush their teeth, eating dinner on time, getting enough sleep etc. It's so hard to have routine and structure with a young baby and a partner who never leaves work at the same time two days in a row. My sleep pattern is a mess and my postnatal depression makes balancing life all the more harder. I just want my family to live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives and we need to bring some order to the chaos before we can achieve that.

Honestly, I could go on and on and on about what I want for my family but I don't want this post to drag on too long. Besides, I don't think there's anything that I want for my family that everyone else doesn't want for theirs. Health, happiness, financial security, a stable loving home, the ability to pursue and achieve their dreams.... we want it all for our families. I know I'm no different to anyone else on the matter but the quality and happiness of my families lives is something I feel incredibly strongly about. 

Until next time,
