It’s funny how much life changes right in front of our eyes. I can still remember being a little girl laughing and playing outside all weekend long. I used to dread doing chores like cleaning my room, changing sheets, and cleaning the bathroom. The older I got the more life changed. Trying to make new friends in high school, decided which college to go to, and what job to take.
Once you get out of your teens and into your 20s, it feels like an eternal search to find out who you are and what you want for the rest of your life. I tried several different things jobs and lived in many places trying to discover who I was. I learned a lot on my journey and I wouldn’t be who I am today if not for those paths I took.
Dating has never been my strong point. I have dated a few men in my days, some great and some less than spectacular. I don’t regret anyone I have shared my time or life with. Through it all I learned so much about myself as a whole and myself as a partner. I call it all practice and all necessary.
Now, I am in my 30’s and life is changing once again. After months of talking, last night I officially became engaged to the greatest man out there, sorry ladies. It is surreal and strange to say I’m engaged; not because I never thought it would happen, but because I can’t believe I’m finally ready for this stage. I can honestly say, in my 20’s I wasn’t ready for a lifelong commitment. I have taken the time to really get to know myself and I’m comfortable with the women I have become.
I am ready to take the next step in life. I don’t always know where the road is going, but I’m always excited to find out where it will lead. This next step in my life is a big one, but I know I have the right man and with him by my side nothing is impossible.
