Daily Prompt: When you were 16, what did you think your life would look like? Does it look like that? Is that a good thing?

Let’s see, when I was sixteen I looked ahead and saw what I think most of us in the stereotypical American culture would see. The house, white-picket fence, kids, no dog…yet. I saw myself going to college, which I did. I saw myself having a career and eventually a family. I prided myself on saying I was going to do what I wanted to do. In the end, I did what most people do.

My answer to the second question is yes and no. In general, my life looks the way I envisioned it. No, in that the details are not what I expected. I couldn’t tell you what the details were then, so I guess they don’t really matter.  Which leads me to the third question.

Is it a good thing the way life turned out? Most definitely. I’m lucky in that I can honestly say I’m truly happy. Any “problems” I may have are purely superficial when I stop to think about them. I have an amazing wife. An awesome kid. Plus, I get to blog!
