I watched the movie Eighth Grade today, and although there are so many topics I could write about after watching it, the one thought that keeps going through my mind is how life changes. The main character, Elsie, records a video to herself at the start of middle school and watches it at the end of eighth grade reflecting on if her life is where she expected it to be. I do that often, and sometimes feel that I am not where I want to be, but you know what? I need to remind myself that everything changes. Just like the leaves in the fall change, so do we. So does life.
Thirty years ago, I never imagined I would be a mother to three amazing daughters and have traveled to so many places. Twenty years ago, I had no idea I would work in the early childhood field and love being a teacher. Ten years ago, who would have thought that I would be speaking in front of others and training people. Five years ago, I dreamed about it, but I didn’t know that I would actually publish two books and write a blog about positivity. Yes, these things took time and effort to make happen, and I worked hard to achieve them, but some things occurred in my life that pleasantly surprised me as well. Even though it sometimes feels like I am stuck and can’t get things to happen, I know that everything changes. I just need to remind myself of that and stay positive. Today, I do remember that, and I am excited to see what the future holds. What will my life look like in 5 years, in 10 years or 20? How about you? Do you remember that everything changes?
