30DoB (Day 11)

Welcome everyone! To those who are new jump on in! No need to back track and catch up on what you've missed (unless of course you want to, then by all means please do). Grab the button and blog about today's question. We love including newbies and are excited to see what you have to say each day!


Being self employed?! 
Actually, I've always seen myself as self employed and working from home raising my kids someday. I really have always wished to be a stay at home mommy that helps her husband run tanks to the field or brings the boys snacks to get them through the day. (I'm just not a mommy or married at this point in my life)
Did I see it based upon the circumstances that took place?
I never expected things to go down as they did and it still really annoys me about what all happened but one thing I've learned is that life isn't always fair and you can be the best employee in the world but if one person doesn't like you it can ruin your entire plans. 
I've also learned that you can either sulk around and eat your sorrows away or you can step up and try to stay positive through out the entire crappy situation. I choose to stop sulking about a month ago and since I've put myself into "work" mode and have tried to really focus on earning an income from home I can seriously tell a difference in my attitude.
Now I'm working on adding items to my Etsy shop, Dirt Road Designing. And I've also majorly focused on my photography business, Dirt Road Photography. I keep praying someday this will be enough to support a full time income and with that comes the ability to stay home and raise my kids.
And another thing I didn't expect. To NOT be married by 24....
I always swore I'd be married before I was out of college and that didn't pan out so here I am, an "old maid" and just hanging out exclusively with Mr. Travie. Nothing wrong with it just not how I envisioned myself to be at almost 25 years old. Sometimes life has it's way of working things out and in this situation I'm thankful that I'm not married and divorced like some of my friends. 
The way you see yourself and feel about yourself will have a tremendous impact on how far you go in life and whether or not you fulfill your destiny. -Joel Osteen by deeplifequotes, via Flickr
So, to stop giving you the run around on the question, no, I never once saw myself in the situation I'm in. I did see myself married by now, running my own business potentially and living the "American Dream." But as you can tell, life's not always what we planned, sometimes you've gotta just roll with it and make the best with what God gives you!
