I had a thought today that things have been mostly the same for me for my whole adult life.
I've been overweight since I was a teen. I attempt to lose weight time and time again but I'm never successful for any length of time.
I have been alone for what adds up to years. I've tried hard to find the love of my life and been in a few relationships but ultimately ended up on my own.
I've lived within a 10 mile radius of where I was born. I've moved three times but I'm now in the home that I'm pretty sure I will live in for the rest of my life.
I've worked at the same school for 13 years. I've had three different positions within that school but my car doesn't know how to drive anywhere else.
And although I've had a deep yearning to be a mother since childhood, I'm still without children.
What if a year from now.....things are still the same.
