I graduated from high school in 1994. Yep, I’ve officially been out of high school for 20 years now. Seriously, where did the time go? I’ve been reflecting on the past two decades of my life. I got married at the young age of 20 to my high school sweetheart. My 20’s were spent doing marriage, college, having babies and starting a career all at the same time. It was a whirlwind and went by really fast. When I turned 30, we picked up our family and moved 1,000 miles away to start a new life. Starting over somewhere new brought its own set of crazy life activities.
So, here I am nearing the ever feared (by most) age of 40. Most of the time it seems as if I have woken up from a dream and suddenly I’m almost 40, my oldest is almost an adult and my son is nearing his high school years. When reflecting back, it seems like a movie where you see the highlights and suddenly your at the end of the movie and it’s only been a couple of hours.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had an amazing life. I am truly blessed. As a child my grandmother used to warn me saying that your life flies by so fast and the older you get the faster it goes. Man, was she right. Where in the world did the time go? It seems as if I should still be 25. Most of the time I feel 25. Hey, I guess that’s a good thing, right?
