“I never thought I’d be doing this,” I found myself saying earlier today in reference to my current position. Not in a bad way, but in a “Huh — that’s interesting” way. It made me reconsider whatever is left of the three and five year plans I built two years ago. Though I could not be happier, much of my life in the last two years was not in the plan.
I wonder how many people feel the same way? Life looked different in fourth grade, to be sure, but how many of us are where we thought we’d be just five years ago?
