Where are you now . . .

. . . compared to where you thought you'd be?

I had a very interesting conversation with some online girlfriends of
mine last month. Where are you now compared to where you want to be?
Where are you now compared to where you wanted to be at an earlier age
(i.e., elementary, high school, college)?

As for me, when I was in elementary school I'd say, "When I grow up I want to be a news anchor or an airline pilot." Then, as I got older and throughout high school, developing a love for Math, I started saying,"I'm majoring in Accounting when I go to college." I got to college and realized I didn't like Accounting so much. That's when it hit me - Business. I want to be an entrepreneur. Thus, I changed my major to Business Management and earned an Honors BBA. Somewhere along the line, I fell into the legal industry and have become a 10-year vet of the legal administration industry, having specialized in corporate law, medical malpractice, estate planning and intellectual property law, and some areas of probate law. I'm hopeful that the business background, the legal foundations learned and now my quest to obtain a Masters degree, and experience will afford me the credentialing and opportunity to one day found, own and successfully operate a community activity and educational training center.

With all being said, I believe I am right where God wants me to be but definitely not where I thought I'd be ;-)


Where are you now - compared to where you thought you'd be?

  1. I would certainly have to agree with you. I definately believe that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be right now. God reminds us that everything worketh together for good, and I believe that all of my life experiences, good and bad, in my control and out of my control, had led me to the woman I am today. I am happy with my progress, but definatley look forward to growing on this journey.
