First I had to search what "lot in life" meant. I guess the term means the circumstances you have in your life. Similar to the "hand you were dealt".
I could totally back out of this and claim I have nothing to complain about and every aspect of my life is perfect. But seriously, is that why we blog?
One part of my life that I've always been sore about was leaving college. Like the title, I figure it wasn't "handed to me" it was a card I dealt myself because it was a choice I made.
I love school, always have. I moved a lot in life but school was always a constant. It was one thing I could count on when settling into a new area. After graduating, I really had no clue where to go to school. I just jumped on the first one I looked at. My great uncle went there, it was a gorgeous campus, but it was in South Dakota. I didn't think I wanted to be that far away from family but at the same time I wanted to get as far away as I could to find my "independence" or ...something. That's what kids do right?
For me, things were different.
Fast forward three years and I have one child who is 17 months old, I am married and about to celebrate my 2nd anniversary (CRAZY), and have one child on the way (EDD: Aug 30)
How am I working to overcome this?
I am taking an online English class to get started on my general courses. I am currently so anxious but at the same time it's exciting.
No matter what "hand" you are dealt, what choices you make, I believe there is a reason for it. No matter what others think in the end, it's your decision. Stand by yourself, stand up for yourself, and don't forget....
Is there anything you're struggling with?
