A little about myself...or a lot...we'll see.
Now, (as I pause to restring the shoelaces in her converse), despite being a wife and mother, I have dreams! Yes, I said it, I have dreams outside of motherhood! While these things are the most important in my life, they do not define who I am. I am still a person with desires, and goals, and there is so much I wish to accomplish in this life. That I will accomplish.
I spent my entire life planning to be a RN when I "grew up," in fact, I worked 5 years in the medical field in order to help achieve such. I knew I wanted to help people, I loved touching the lives of others, but what I didn't know, is that there are multiple ways to do so. I have always known that I loved to read and write, but living in a small town in the south doesn't exactly make way for that type of profession. In fact, rumor has it, if you aren't a nurse or a teacher, then you aren't going to be successful. However, despite what the little birdy said, after 5 years of going to school for nursing, I decided to abandon what felt comfortable, and start over doing what I loved. Reading and writing.
I finally realized that I could touch lives and still do what I love most. So, I transferred colleges, let my hair down...(haha just kidding!), seriously though, I changed my major to English and here I am today, writing a blog and trying to get my freelance writing career kicked off! Wish me luck!
P.S. Stay tuned for more of my crazy journey!
My daughters converse I had to restring. She made an awesome attempt however!
