Decade Challenge: Reflecting on the last 10 years

The current trend sweeping social media is the “Decade Challenge” or “10 year challenge”, so of course I couldn’t help but join the bandwagon.

Looking back at pictures of my 20-year-old self (2009), it’s hard not to think how much I have learned since then.

2009 was the year I moved back home from the college I was attending due to a hurt shoulder which kept me from competing in my sport (Diving).

It was also the year I thought going back to my natural hair color, brown, was a good life choice. Don’t worry, I realized my mistake and by the end of 2009 I had started getting back to blonde.

Since then I have loved, lost, and learned thousands of valuable lessons that make me who I am today, in 2019.

In the last 10 years I have earned my BA & MA.

Lived in London.

Had jobs in radio, teaching and administration.

Made many new friends, and also lost some along the journey.

I have fallen in love, and had my heart completely broken.

My favorite part of this decade? I’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters who motivate me to be my BEST.

While 2019 has proven to be one of my toughest, life changing years yet… I have learned so much about myself.

What I deserve. What I need. What I want.

Looking forward to see what adventures and blessings the next decade brings.
