How Does My Life Measure Up

Going Green with the GrizlsA great prompt was given from my Summer Blog Challenge, in how does my life measure up to the vision I had when I was younger. Well, I never saw myself as a Mother of 4, I’ll tell ya that. I had always imagined I’d go off to school and live a very independent life. I may or may not marry but would spend my time outdoors, hiking, bike riding, and climbing mountains. 

It’s interesting, because I became a Mom at such a young age I didn’t dream about how my life would turn out. I never envisioned a grand wedding or a fancy lifestyle. I simply focused on finishing high school with a baby on my hip, getting into college, finishing college, and starting a career. I guess overall I’ve done all those things and so life has pretty much turned out the way I had hoped. 

I seem to daydream more often now of a clean, clutter free home, bike rides, runs, reading books, enjoying wine and then I snap out of it and realize I don’t need any of those things to have a great life, I’m living my great life with screaming kids and a cluttered home. I laugh and love. I sweat and run. Life will change over time and I’ll find myself in different places and positions but overall I think I’m here more for the adventure than planning it all out.
