Five years ago I was a college student who wasn't quite sure what the future had in store. I certainly never imagined I'd be where I am today. Sure, I always dreamed of getting married and starting a family, but it's neat to see how all of the little pieces fit together. It just keeps getting better.
I used to feel like there was no real way I could make a difference. Now, through the power of the Internet (and blogging in particular), I've discovered that I have a voice to communicate with hundreds of people around the world.
I used to think that I needed people to admire me in order to have self-worth. I've learned that I have worth because of who I am (and Who's I am), not because of what I do.
I used to imagine what it would be like to be a wife and mother, and although it definitely has its challenging moments, it just keeps getting better.
Even though my life is not perfect, I have learned that attitude is everything. When you have the right perspective it's possible to see the bright side in even the darkest of circumstances.
Things are better than ever because of the friends and family in my life that make each day a new adventure.
