I think having kids does wonders to your life, in both the good and bad sense of the word. It brings to you tremendous changes. Your lifestyle changes, your mind set changes, your pace of life changes. Children brightens up your life and make you slow down your life pace, letting you enjoy the finer things in life, appreciate the little smiles and kisses they bring you. At times you will feel the stress and pressure of life but when you enjoy life through the eyes of your child, you will count your blessings and take everything in stride. I did slow down my career pace when I have children. I travelled lesser and worked shorter hours to continue my breast Feeding journey and to be there when they are very young. So far, I do not regret the stagnation period of my career as my children acknowledges that mum is always there for them and this is most important to me. Every One is different and you would have to think it through thoroughly. Whilst it is true that our biological clock is ticking every minute and as we ages, it gets harder to have children, it is also important that you are convinced to have them at a certain point in your life so that you won't look back and regret later.
