  • 2020 and 10 Years Time

    Coming into 2020 I spent a lot of time reflecting on the last 10 years of my life. I remembered that when I was 18 years old I had my life planned out. I would meet my future husband, I would be married by 23, I would have my own home, I would have my first child by 25 (of which I would have 3), and I would have the career of my choosing (which at the time (18) was a writer, although in high school I had wanted to be a voice actor and later a chef). However in the last ten years I have achieved none of that. I am as single as it gets, I do not have my own home (I live at home with my parents), I have no children, I am not a professional writer/author (I also never became a chef or got into voice acting)

    I guess in comparison of what I had expected to be as opposed to what is, it appears as though I failed. That however is far from the truth. In ten years I worked retail which opened the door for me to become a csr/mtm of a bank, I became an Aunt and have shared so many fun times with my now 10 year old niece, I started a women’s ministry page called Woman of God (in which I have written many articles) I’ve had opportunities to travel to places like New York to see a Broadway show and Radio City Music Hall for a concert, Seattle Washington for Comic Con as well as go to Longwood Gardens, I’ve met a lot of people (including Tom Hiddleston, Adam Young, Charlie Cox, and Hunter Hayes), I’ve tried new things such as archery and axe throwing, I learned that I could make the people closest to me laugh by doing impressions of movie characters, and I could make great memories with family cooking dinners. In 10 years I didn’t achieve the things I thought I would have when I was 18 years old, instead my life thus far has turned out completely different than I expected it would by 28. But in that I achieved dreams I didn’t know existed and I grew as a person and because of that I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I guess it’s true in the words of John Lennon “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
