Do you ever let go of your dreams once you start your own family?

I've always wanted to be in a band. Not just becoming a part of it, but making it in the music industry. But I'm pregnant right now and i know my priorities will change. I actually belong to a band right now together with some of my officemates but with my condition, we have to stop going to auditions. Honestly, I missed performing on stage and sharing what I really love to do.

Wouldn't it be very edgy to see a pregnant woman in a band? Do you really have to stop? I guess if you are not so far along yet you could still continue on. It's never what's happening around us that change the direction our dreams take but it's what changes inside us. Don't let go of your desire to be in a band.

That's not a bad idea... we could go on acoustic for the meantime 'coz I'm already on my 5th month.. I remembered seeing another band with a pregnant vocalist, that was something. I would just need to lay off the headbangs for a while.. :)

From the very start, It was you who started your own family. You know what it is to start a family and it will affect your way to your dreams of being with your band full time. Its going to be a challenge for you to face and to live your dream. If you really love it then don't let it go! You just have to carefully manage your time for your family, for yourself, for your work and for your band. If you're making out good music and composing good songs you can push that through your success with your band members cooperation and support as well. We only live our lives once and whatever circumstances that happens, we should manage and make the most out of it! More Power to your success!

it shouldn't be that way, you should actually be inspired to do the things you love more.

I hope that you continue on with it once you are able to after you have your baby. And congrulations on the baby. I know from experience that it won't be easy. But you can have a life after wards you just need to make sure its the right time for you and the right time for the baby to be away from you for periods of time. It took me right around 6 months until I felt comfortable enough working after I had my little girl so don't be surprised if you find your self in that same situation. I just didn't want to put her in the hands of someone else. So it took me a while to trust someone else to take care of her like I could.
