Sometimes I think about all the things I could have done before now, the choices I could have made, the paths I could have taken.
I don't mean that I have regrets. It's just easy to imagine that if I'd made certain choices it would have led me to certain things and then I would feel more certain about my life.
I guess what I mean is that sometimes it seems to me I could have chosen a profession — you know one where you go to school and then you go to school some more and then after that you begin work in a specific field that corresponds. Who knows, perhaps one day I'll be going down that path?
But right now, I'm taking a road less travelled. My Facebook feed is full of friends buying houses, taking vacations, reporting on their day jobs and posting pictures of their kids.
Those are all glorious things. They're things I want for myself one day. But I don't just want that. And I'm wondering here, at almost 32, if perhaps one day this road I've taken will have made all the difference? And I'm curious about what that difference could be?
