It’s crazy to think about how totally my different my life was three Christmas’ ago.
I had just finished the most demanding and stressful academic year of my life, and was finally a dental professional. I was healing from a nasty break up, working three jobs, and was 6 months into running my business.
My mom had her house on the market, and little did I know that it would be our very last Christmas in my childhood home. After Christmas I took off from working in a dental office after all of that hard work to finish out a few classes using the rest of my scholarship money ( I am still one class away from getting my associates in business administration) I wanted to spend the semester focusing on going through things, getting rid of stuff, organizing stuff, getting prepared to sell the house ( little did I know that we really needed me to take a full semester to do it, who knew you could accumulate so much stuff!!)
Three years later… I am married and have two kids (and a dog and two cats!) We own a house in Fredericksburg, I am still loving running a successful business, and have yet to go back to work. We have been through some extremely challenging times that I never thought I would personally experience, but my marriage is stronger than ever and I am a totally different person for it.
It’s never what I would have expected. If you would have told me my life would look like this three years ago, I would not have believed you, but I’ve had faith through it all that there was a bigger plan for me, that I just didn’t know about. It’s what got me through the times that getting out of bed and making it to the couch was a huge achievement because I was just that sick and broken.
I can’t wait to see what the next three years have to hold, but I have faith that it will be amazing!
