If you asked me at 18 years old where I would be at 35, it would not be here!
When I graduated high school I went to college in Washington D.C. with some grandiose plans of become the next Madeleine Albright.
I would daydream about my sleek apartment in Dupont Circle, and walking The Hill in my black Theory Power Suit (I can still smell the power).
Fast forward 17 years and I am an educator, living in the town I was raised in, with 2 kids, and 3 dogs. I spend 75% of my time in yoga pants, and I don’t even think I own a suit.
And guess what? I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I recently resigned from my stable, tenured teaching position after 12 years. I am taking a leap of faith and have taken a new position in the private sector. It is SO scary for me because I do not do well with change. But it is time, and I am ready.
With all of this change I have been doing a lot of reflecting.
Over the past few years I have experienced some incredibly pivotal life events, both positive and negative and it blows my mind every. single. day how crazy real life is.
I would have NEVER in a million years imagined the life I have today, or the things that have happened in my life.
But I wouldn’t change a thing, especially this part:
I am not a particularly deep or introspective person, so don’t get used to this! But I want to encourage you to take a minute and reflect on your life.
Is what you imagined it would be? Let me know!
Until next time.
