I take a step back and look at where I came from and where I am.
Location wise...I've made it about 2 miles away, since high school. I've not been around the world. I've not lived in exotic places. I've not learned new languages or been exposed to new cultures.
Career wise...I don't know that I'd call it a "career". (Please, dear God, tell me what I'm doing isn't a career!!) It's a job. It's flexible. It allows me to work from home and I help bring in a little money. Not too exciting.
School wise...I'm not graduated from a prestigious school. I don't have a gigantic diploma hanging on my wall...yet. This part of my life is under construction.
It's kind of a tad depressing.
I see what everyone else has accomplished and I feel...blah. It's like I'm running a decade long race against my old school peers and I'm trying to finish it one-legged.
Then, I look at what I DO have...and I'm reminded of all that I have accomplished. I DO have a wonderful family that I am raising in a loving, happy home. I DO have a wonderful husband that loves me and supports my dreams. I DO have goals and I'm beating a steady path towards them, every single day.
I DO have this:
...and they make me the luckiest person in the world.
