"It took leaving, for me to understand. Sometimes your dreams aren't what life has planned." - Lady Antebellum
It has been a very interesting year. As I sit here again, staring at the last blog post written in July, so much has happened and I don't even know where to start. I have spent the last several years worried about the "what ifs" and possibilities of a life I hoped for... only to find out that life just wasn't for me. It's been a rough few months- emotionally, financially, and physically exhausting- but at this point the only thing left to do is forgive myself. I quickly admit that I had made a mistake, I set about fixing it (which was a very hard choice) and now I am here. Back to a life that for such a long time, seemed so temporary, so not-quite-right. I need to forgive myself for being human and wanting something better, and understand that everything happens for a reason. Then I move on and make the most out of this life I never fully wanted, with the understanding that it's the right choice for me and my family.
Soon this blog will be lively and beating with the hearts of new 3rd graders, cute smiling puppies, and one happy teacher <3
