Win Big in THE GAME OF LIFE – CAA Edition

paid disclosure-1

I smile when I think back to my teenage years. I used to imagine what my life would be like when I grew up. I pictured myself living somewhere in Europe and working as either a French or German translator. I would be happily married and have a couple of children. I chuckle because my life could not be so different! I believe everything happens for a reason and things are as they are meant to be.

First of all, I’m still living in Canada and definitely not working in foreign languages! Instead, I studied accounting and worked in public practice for 6 years before leaving my job for health reasons. Fast forward to 2014 and I’m working full-time blogging! Crazy how things turn out isn’t? Back in high school, the Internet was fresh and new, and not many people that I knew used it yet. I didn’t even know what blogging was back then.

I was married young, at age 21, and had my first daughter at age 20. Being a mom changed my plans and made me re-evaluate what I wanted to do with my life.  I went to college first and then university when Olivia was little. I was motivated to continue my education and get a good job to contribute to our family income.  My second daughter came along in 2004 and completed our family.

Traveling was still in the cards for me, but not in Europe. Instead, we moved every few years to different military bases in Canada as a military family. We’ve lived in Ontario, Alberta, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I didn’t mind moving and surprisingly started to welcome the process. It was neat being able to see and experience different locales in our beautiful country.

In 2009, life changed again when I separated from my husband. The experience changed me and made me both stronger and more independent. Then I met John and we’ve been together ever since. I feel good about where my life is at right now. I’ve had my ups and downs, but overall, things are good and I’m thankful for the experiences and people in my life. I’m blessed with two healthy daughters and a partner who is supportive and kind.

My life isn’t even close to what I thought it would be back then, but I’m not complaining. It’s different, but that isn’t a bad thing. In fact, I’d say it’s even better than I thought it would be! I’m ready to keep playing the game of life and seeing what life has in store for me for the future.
