I have been thinking about this same question for days and for me the answer is no. I have been trying to weigh out the pros and cons on where my life has been this past 5 years.
I will be married 5 years this July and it is still going great.
Did I think that I would never have my own baby? The answers is no and still hurts to say out loud.
Did I think that we would be foster parents? no that's another post all on its own
Would I ever of imagined that I could love someone else's child with all of my heart? no
We moved back to my hometown 4 years ago also and I am so glad.
This blog started and has grown in two years.
I also started a small crochet business.
I don't know where I will be in the next 5 years and that scares me. This past year has been amazing and so scary and I do not even know where the next year will bring us. Talking about feelings and life really worry me as there is no guarantee for us in this journey either way and saying things out loud makes it seem so official. So for me I can only try to live in this moment that I have right here and now and not try and wonder what the next 5 years of my life will be. No matter how much you plan your life can change in a instant with just one phone call that you never expected.
Comment below and let me know if your last 5 years are exactly how you imagined.
It's funny what life throws at you, huh? We think we're going to follow this path all planned out in our heads and it just never happens that way. It's always bumps and pits and backtracking.ReplyDelete
Five years ago, I would have never thought my husband and I would be where we are. First in St Louis, in our own house, with a new baby, and finally financially stable. It's been a jam packed five years!
