I am bummed because as I was thinking of this post today I had this all planned out with my picture of me in my back brace- but unfortunately I can't find it! Dang it! So, after hours of looking I have decided to write it anyways.
7 years ago today, I was just graduating high school, looking forward to going to college in Seattle and wondering what lay ahead.
I never thought I would still be working to finish my degree and I could have never pictured what lay ahead.
7 years ago today, I was looking for more excitement than Littleton, CO and getting ready for my senior trip to Mexico.
If I had only known that "more excitement" meant Wichita, KS and that trip was not to be, at least not for me...
7 years ago today, I met the man that I thought was the one, the person I thought was the man of my dreams.
The Rascall Flatts Song "God Blessed the Broken Road" says it better than I can-
"Every long lost dream led me to where you are/Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars/Pointing me on my way into your loving arms” If only I knew that the best was yet to come and this man would play a part in leading me straight to my soul mate, my best friend, the love of my life.
7 years ago today, I thought 25 was old.
I wonder when I will feel old enough to be a “grown up”?
7 years ago today, I was a dancer, a daycare worker, a partier, a graduate.
Today I am a wife, a manager, an honor student and too busy to breathe most days, let alone work out or actually enjoy it again.
7 years ago today, I broke my back and that moment changed everything.
Even though it has been rough and not at all what I planned for myself, I wouldn’t change anything that has led me to where I am today and even though there are things I do wish that I could change, the most important things would never have happened without all of this, 7 years ago today.
