This won't be a surprise to anyone who knows me well, but I am not the same person anymore. I am not the same person I was 20 years ago, 10 years ago, 5 years ago or even 1 year ago. Here is why. 20 years ago I was fresh out of high school, insecure as could be. Going to college, working at an amazing part time job. I didn't have a real plan, but day to day I went to class and things would work out. 10 years ago I was pregnant with my first child and getting ready to graduate from chiropractic school. Again, I had a plan but now I was looking at opening my own business and raising a person. Lots of emotions there. 5 years ago I had two kids, owned my business, was running one kid to pre-school and had a 2 year old oh, and I had one panic attack under my belt. One year ago I had two kids in school, one in daycare, still a chiropractor, panic attacks now a thing of the past, and had the idea of starting a podcast. And then we get to today. Right now I am homeschooling my two school aged kids, still a chiropractor and enjoying my podcast hobby, oh and I started a blog. It's kind of fun and interesting how we change in life. If you knew me 20, 10, 5, 1 year ago that's great! I liked all those versions of me, but that is not who I am anymore. Those versions are a part of me, kind of like pillars that helped build who I am. Right now I can say I do like this version of me best. I hope you know this me, I am no longer insecure, I got rid of my anxiety, I am extremely passionate about life and I am a seriously great mom. Think I am overly confident? I'm not. I'm happy. I enjoy my life. I have a good relationship with my husband, not a perfect relationship, but we get along real well. I have three boys who are the light of my life. I have a job that doesn't even seem like a job because I get to work with people that become my friends and they make it fun. I am able to do or say things without overthinking it because, frankly, I stopped caring that people over analyze things I say or do. Why am I sharing this? Maybe you will realize that you are not the same person you used to be. Maybe you will be able to embrace that, like I have. Or, maybe you are the same person you used to be and you like it. Maybe you are the same person but you want to change. The point I am trying to make is that we all have the choice to choose. That sentence sounds very funny to me but I am leaving it because I like it. Isn't that fun?! We decide what makes us happy, in the same way we decide what makes us mad. We decide what kind of person we want to be, where we want to be, how we want to be. So, to everyone who knew me in the past, I'm glad you have been a part of my journey. To those who are on this ride with me right now, buckle up!
