Inside my world 
1. Go back five years, would you have pictured your life as it is now or would it have been different?  If so, how or why?
Five years ago would put me at age 21. Yikes!  I wanted to be married THEN. {Thinking back, it was more of wanting to plan my wedding then. No way was I ready for marriage.} I wanted a baby baby by 23 and to build a house by 26. I saw my life picture perfect, however I was partying like a rock-star every weekend having the time of my life with NO REGRETS. If my life turned out as how I planned five years ago, I would probably be in an unhealthy marriage with wonderful children but being a struggling mom trying to find out who she is deep inside.  I would have been a hott mess.
My life, our life, turned out completely different. Married at age 26 with no children and we briefly discuss our plans for buying our first home {short term goal} & building several years later {long term goal}. As of now, we are happy where we are. My life today is healthy, happy and ready for more love to grow. I want to continue to think of how to rearrange our living room instead of picking out baby furniture... at least for a couple more years.

2. In a perfect world with no attachments, my career would be...
Anything in the field of working with disabled children, children's shelters, abused children & their homes.
I would love to change the world of a sheltered child  & children with disabilities. I would love to work with disabled children everyday. That being said {why I don't}... I don't think I'd be able to leave my job at work and that is something I believe in completely. Basically, it would become more of a lifestyle for me.

3. Name one thing you do {or don't do} that the world may think strange of you.
I don't use a wash cloth or any type of scrub item when bathing. I just use body wash & my hands. Except on my face. I exfoliate my face.

I rarely use wash clothes either.

I got married at 26 too. Perfect age for me.

I also work in the field of child abuse prevention...I do it because a lot of the children that are abused are the ones who are too small to have a voice for themselves. I love them, snotty noses and all :) Thank you for your work that you do with these kids as well :)

No worries! I just use my hands too! (Your number 3, that sounded kinda funny lol).

Umm. Your #1, so many people do that. Me included. I really just wanted the wedding and the picture perfect family. It's so nice to see people who recognize that and do not make the same painful mistake! Live and learn right!

Love this idea by the way!!

I love that you just use your hands & a body wash. I do that too & my hubby thinks it is the CRAZIEST thing ever. Glad to know I am not alone!

OH MY GOSH!!! I just use my hand and body wash too!!! Some people think that's so weird & wonder how I can be clean. I dunno, but I think I smell pretty decent ;)

It warms my heart to hear that you would want to work with children with disabilities. My brother is mentally and physically disabled and I have been finding so many blogger friends who have decided to go into special education and I just commend all of you for that. :)

Hi! Im your newest follower and new blogger! I would link up except my list would literally be exactly like yours! I think we may have the same heart! And I'm so thankful I didn't marry the guy I was with at 21, we would've been a mess! Dodged that bullet! Ha
