I had so much fun with last week's assignment from Mama's Losin' It, so I decided to do another one this week!
If you could rearrange three things about your life what would they be?
I am going to contradict myself in answering this question. I believe everything happens for a reason. There is reasoning behind my cookie cutter answer.We can go back really far with my answer..to the "beginning of time." However, I will start with the event that first "changed" my life. The death of my father. I think about him every single day, and do not believe that time heals everything. Time allows you the chance to learn to deal with death. It never gets easier, and there is no specific mourning time. If my Father didn't die at his young age, my mom would have never remarried my 'stepdad' (dad from here on out.) My family was very very poor, happy, but poor as dirt. My dad was more financially stable. If it were not for that, I would have never been able to go to a private school for my highschool years. If I had never gone to the private school, I never would have met Lauren, who was my best friend throughout those years. We decided to go check out a college together, Liberty University, during their "college for a weekend." If I hadn't gone to check the school out, I would not have applied there. Attending Liberty gave me the opportunity to move to DC. If I had not gone to DC I would have never gotten a job there. I was lucky enough to get a job from the internship I completed. If I had not accepted that job, I never would have met David. If I never met David I don't think I would marry anyone else. My life would not be as complete. I would not laugh as much if it were not for him.
Although I have been through a lot of ups and downs and left out a lot of information, I can still see how everything is intertwined in getting me to where I am today.
What are some instances that you recognize how you would not be where you are today without them? (I understand it could be a long answer..it's okay—I have the time to read it!)
