What I Know at 30

I think it’s funny when people ask other people, “Where do you see yourself in 10-15 years?” We can all answer that question as honestly as possible, but who REALLY lives up to that answer. Things just happen and things come up that we can’t control…and your “plan” changes quickly.

When I graduated high school, I saw my very own dance school in my future. What I didn’t know was that I would be reliving my ballerina dreams through two tiny little dancers of my own.

When I was in college, I saw little students and my very own classroom in my future. What I didn’t know was life takes you on turns you never thought you would see… and that I would end up in a chemical plant! I thank God everyday for that plan he had stored in his back pocket.

As our relationship grew in high school, I knew I would always see myself with Seth. What I didn’t know was that love grows beyond what you can imagine. Just when you think you can’t love someone more…your heart just makes extra room for that special person. I love him way more than I did in high school, and I’m sure I’ll love him even more than I do today. It’s funny how that works.


What I did know ever since I was a little girl, is that I wanted to be a mommy. What I didn’t know is that I would have three of the most amazing little children who could make every dream I have ever had come true. They literally put a smile on my face every single day. I know my entire purpose in life is to be their mom, and I am so grateful for that opportunity. They are my greatest success.


So maybe I’m not where I thought I would be at 30…but I can say that I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else :)
