How is it that 10 years can go by so quickly?
This past weekend, as I was blowing up balloons for High School Graduations, it hit me that this year marks TEN YEARS since I graduated from High School. (I mean I knew it was coming up but DANG that was fast!)
Ten years ago I was walking across that stage receiving my diploma.
Ten years ago I had no plans for my future. I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up.
Ten years ago I would have laughed if you told me that ten years from then I would be running my own business.
Ten years ago I was deep in my struggle with depression.
Ten years ago I had no idea what infertility was or how it would affect my life.
Ten years ago I was naive about a lot of things.
Today I blew up balloons for other people walking across that stage receiving their diplomas.
Today I have lots of plans for my (our) future.
Today I am running my own business (with my husband!) and most days in awe that I even have the opportunity to do so!
Today I know my depression. I know how to handle it and I don’t struggle with it anymore.
Today I know what infertility is. I want to speak out about it so that EVERYONE is familiar with infertility. It affects 1 in 8 people! It is something that should be talked about instead of whispered or kept to ourselves.
Today I’m more knowledgeable about a lot of things. I would hope so seeing as how it’s been ten years!
So here’s to ten years of being out in the real world! (And here’s hoping the next ten won’t go quite as fast!)
