An old friend make me think

What would my younger self think of me now?

Would I be impressed with the life I have created or dissappnted at how traditional my life appears.

I am smart, I graduated highschool in three years, graduated with honers from college, I  have my MBA and I stay home with my kids.

I worked 55 hours a week in my previous life. That career path would not work in my current life nor would it feed my soul.

So I chase my kids in heels. On occasion I wear an apron. I bake cookies and carpool. Some days it is more then enough an others it is not nearly enough.

I coach running to young girls, I am president of my parents club. I am a runner, a friend, a wife, a mom.  I have a lot of roles.

My friends and I have happy hour in the back yard.  The kids play while we cocktail and have adult conversation.  It is a far cry from the happy hours of my younger self, but I look forward to it all the same. 

I don't know what my younger self would think about my life but my heart and my days full. 

I don't know what my future self will say about this time in my life but for now it is working for me.

What would your younger self say about you now?



  1. Love this! I sometimes wish my younger self could see me... just to be encouraged that things really would work out!

  2. Thanks for taking this opportunity to discuss this, I feel fervently about this and I like learning about this college in punjab

  3. I agree with Lucy, if we could just get a glimpse into our future when younger, it might bolster our confidence in getting through those very tender years of growing up.

    Nice post!!
