Every Day Adulting

I am trying to work on a personal journey and it’s brought up so many questions.  The first one is: What have I done with my life?

I feel like I have a little bit of experience and a ton of interest in all the things I want to do, love to do! What is wrong with me? Okay, loaded question. What is wrong is plain to me. I look at it in the mirror every morning. I have to admit that I got derailed, very early on. *ahem, at 16 to be exact.

I met this cute guy, over twenty years ago. we totally got married and had three kids, by the way. I did this really quickly too. I had just turned 20 when I had my first daughter. Naturally I got really consumed by the adventures I was in. Instead of pursuing the things I had originally intended, I ended up learning everything I could about child development.

The thing is, I have been rethinking my strategy, I would really love to get back to writing and art related things. My oldest daughter is 16 now, and the other two are officially old enough to make their own food if they get hungry. That may seem like an odd milestone to base things off of, but trust me, it’s not. As a mother 75 percent of my daily interruptions have come from food related needs. It may sound crazy, but all mothers out there, you know exactly what I am talking about.

But I digress. well, no, no I didn’t. That’s what I have been doing with my life. I just think it’s time for a change. I guess I am realizing that I need to do something to continue to be a good influence and example to my children.

I will post the other questions as a series.
