It brings me back to my high school graduation seven years ago. (Gosh...I didn't realize how old I was...ha!) Class of 2005, baby!
Thinking back to graduation...I started thinking about how I'm not where I expected to be.
When I was in high school, I expected that by 25 (almost 26!) I'd be in a very different place than I am today - married, with kids, working in the field I went to college for, etc.
I am none of those things.
But you know what? I am happy. I know that everything will fall into place when the time is right.
When you're in high school, you're so...young and inexperienced. You don't know yourself completely then, either. You haven't fully lived yet. (Until you live on your own especially in another country, you haven't lived.)
Anyways...so often people ask me if I've done this or that - if I have kids - why I don't have any yet - etc...when I let it get to me, first I get upset that they would ask me such personal questions and then I typically get a little sad (until I make myself snap out of it!)
At the end of the day, all that matters is that you are happy. If you can go to bed at night, happy...fantastic! If you can't - what changes can you make so you can go to bed happy the next day? Whatever it is, make it happen!
Life is too short to be anything less than happy. <3
It doesn't matter if you're where you expected to be or not...you'll get just where you're meant to be.
