Ever have that feeling that everyone else is moving on with their lives and somehow you just missed the mark? Lately it feels as though every time I log onto Facebook another high school friend is getting married or having a baby.
About six or seven years ago I kept thinking I had so much time left and that there was no rush. Somehow before I realized what was happening people who are younger than I am are accomplishing more and I’m still stuck in the same place.
And of course ‘stuck’ is a wildly generous description seeing as in the last six months I moved to a different country and strange city all by myself where I didn't know a single person.
In the name of full disclosure I should also add that I haven’t exactly done my part as of late in moving my life forward. I spent so many years being jealous and angry that these things were happening for everyone else but at the same time I wasn't exactly putting myself out there either. So I guess in many ways I am to blame for feeling the way I do right now.
So what's the solution here? If I knew that I likely would not be sitting here alone blogging. Stay tuned.
