Figuring it all out

The other day my mom and husband were talking.  He had the day off and thought it would be nice to catch up with her {love him!}  Of course I came up.  My mom mentioned to M how thankful she is that he is in my life and he came when he did.

See growing up I was an extremely difficult child/pre-teen.  I can actually say looking back I couldn’t wait to grow up.  Kind of sad when you think about it.  My entire life I have had a plan and known exactly where I want to go and where I want to be.  Dating Marco at 14 only intensified that process-I knew after the first couple months we were meant for one another.  I could have cared less about high school, college was okay but didn’t get to enjoy it like most people.  My main priority was finishing.

Now that I am 5+ years into corporate America and I wish I had done things a little differently.  Maybe gone to a different college or applied myself more in school or not worked as much in college.  Obviously you can’t change the past, but you can decide where you want to spend your future.  Right now I am figuring that out…

loved this post britt! It is SO true..... I think we all kind of do that to an extent, and we can't really help it.. every teenager wants to be an adult and then when we get to be the age we are we look back with more wisdom and go "ohhh, hmm... maybe that wasn't so terrible"... but that is the way it goes I think. Always important to enjoy where we are while we are there---- thanks for writing this!

Thank you for this Britt! I know I'm in that position in my life where I'm just trying so hard to focus on where I'm going to be next, and I haven't really taken the time to just stop for a second and enjoy where I am now. I graduated from college almost a year ago now and so I've just frantically been thinking 'WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NEXT?' But I think it's also a good time to just enjoy the fact that I don't have all the responsibilities that will come later in life. Yeah, I know I'm in a weird limbo, but I'm also in the care of my parents that are providing me with a roof, food, and all expenses paid. For now, it's a pretty sweet life. And I'll always be thinking about where my future is going to be, but I think I'll also be taking more time to appreciate where I am now!

I definitely understand where you are coming from. I'm constantly trying to get to the next place in my life without appreciating where I am. I think I was a lot worse at this a few years back, and even now I'm trying to get over it. It drives my husband crazy, and he's wondered {out loud} before if I will ever just be happy. I think I will, someday. And I think you will too :)

Thanks for posting this! And I don't know if I told you before, but I love your new design.
