Very vulnerable post ahead that is honestly well overdue...
This is my decade challenge post for the new year, if you will. You see that girl on the right? She has changed A LOT in 10 years. In 2010 She was 25 and a new new mom to a little boy, in a very rocky relationship, working two jobs. They were not a good fit and they would fight, and sometimes it would be chaos, but she chose to stay. She was learning what she wanted in life and she knew this wasn’t it but didn’t know how to change it as it was all she knew. She knew she was looking for someone to help as a partner and wanted to grow into the women she was meant to be. She knew she wasn’t happy where she was so after many years, she finally left.
She went through the dating scene and it was all the same. She decided she was going to be single for the rest of her life cause she had imagined her life differently when she reached 30 and it was nothing like this. Fast forward to 2013 and she met a guy who became her best friend and they were inseparable and he made her feel at peace and like she could conquer anything. Even though her wall was up so very high towards guys in general she finally became his girlfriend after asking her 3 times.
Fast forward again to 2020 and the girl on the right is a happy wife and mother of two boys (3 if you count the dog) with that same man who loves her unconditionally, encourages her to be a better person everyday and to pursue her dreams. She is a proud business owner and entrepreneur and is living a life she always wanted to. She couldn’t have done all of it and conquered all her doubts without him by her side. He is her biggest fan and her business partner. ❤️
I am here today to tell you that it is not all rainbows and butterflies every single day, but it is better than anything I could have thought I’d have at 35. I am also here to encourage you to not settle or loose hope on finding that someone or chasing that dream because you think you are getting older. Sometimes it’s right in front of you as was mine. You got this girl.
