Title is pretty self explanatory.
I think we all have a rough vision of what kind of life we think we are going to have, but did yours turn out that way? Were there obstacles to overcome to get there? Did you change your mind about anything? Are you still working towards your goals? Have you ever said “maybe the world is trying to tell me that I’m not supposed to do that?” and taken the opposite road?
If you had asked me 10-15 years ago about where I think my life would be, I’d have answered that I’d be married by late 20s and enjoy married life for a few years (travel, etc.), have a couple kids before I turned 30, dog, maybe even be a Stay-At-Home Mom and living in a nice forever home with our family.
Instead, I’m 37, divorced, and recently engaged to a wonderful older man who has older kids, have decided that kids aren’t in my future, we have started investing in vacation/rental properties instead of worrying about a forever home (we are basically empty nesting and don’t need much in terms of space), traveling, and realy just having a great time.
I’m not saying that my original future wouldn’t have brought me joy, but I’m just shocked at what a turn my life took and how I was still able to find so much happiness.
What about the rest of you Bees?
