It's funny how life can take us on such a different path than the one we imagined as kids. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade my current life for anything! I love being a wife and a mother. I like owning my own home and having a job with flexible hours. There are times though, that I do wonder what my life would be like if I had done ONE thing different.
That one thing would be my decision not to go to college.
I got married. We bought a house. We got a cat. We had a kid. We got 2 bigger rigs to hold our growing family. We got a dog. We had another kid. I had to keep working. Going back to school was not an option.
What if I had decided to go to college instead of taking that year off? Would I be as happy in life as I am now? Would I have gotten married? Would we have kids? Would we have 3 cats and a dog? What would life be like if I could go back and change that one decision?
All of this I do not and will not know because of that ONE thing I didn't do. And I am OK with that.
