What did I think my life would look like when I was 16?
Well, I thought I would be married, living in a quaint little house, with children, and a fulfilling career. Now at that time I thought I would be married to my high school sweetheart. I thought that my best friend and I would still be close as ever, and I imagined that I would still be living in my hometown.
My life now: At the age of 31 I am indeed happily married (although not to my high school sweetheart) I have one child (whom I had to conceive using fertility methods…didn’t see that one coming) I do have a career as a teacher, but as I have mentioned in previous posts I am quitting that job to pursue my dream of writing. I do live in a quaint little house, but I no longer live in my hometown. My best friend ended up married to my high school sweetheart…so needless to say that friendship ended.
All in all I am very pleased with the way my life has turned out. I have a loving family, a house, a job, a dream, and new friends. I would not have changed any path I have taken
