Today I was sitting here thinking about where I once thought I would be at this point in my life and how absolutely different things ended up being. I love to challenge myself when it comes to my accomplishments, but I honestly never thought I would have accomplished the things I have at this point in my life. I definitely thought I would have accomplished as much, if not more, I just thought it would have been more on the spectrum of either being an NFR Rodeo qualifier, or a soccer mom to several children.
But reality set in and I realized that since I wasn’t raised in the rodeo circuit like those qualifying for the NFR were (and I wasn’t wealthy), that dream was a little far out there. Not that it couldn’t have happened if I found a deal like Scamper that could have gotten me enough sponsors to pay my way to the top, but my Scamper is still yet to be found unless I have a good $70,000 or more.
I definitely thought that by now I would have been a mother of a few children, but instead I am a step mother of an awesome little man and will hopefully make him a big brother in the near future if we play our cards right. But when the time is right, the time will be right! So for now a stepson, 2 horses, 2 cats and 2 dogs are my children.
A few things I did accomplish, that I knew I wanted by this age, is marriage, home ownership, a good career and NO debt! And when I say no debt, I mean no credit cards and such weighing me down. Of course we have the normal debt like our home and one of our vehicles, but other than that we don’t buy it if we can’t pay cash for it! Saving money is hard at times, but if we want something bad enough, we find a way. I guess that’s just called being responsible right? Hahaha!
So onward with my adult life where I plan to accomplish even more with all the new things I have brewing in my mind. The possibilities are endless when I get that pot brewing!
