‘I think I took a wrong turn’ by Misty Baumgrotz

Life definitely didn’t turn out how I planned it, but I have learned over the years that that’s the point. Life isn’t how it’s planned, it’s better. There are turns, cliffs, roadblocks, and detours, but learning to laugh at myself was the best journey I could imagine. Going through it I didn’t think so, but looking back now at what I thought were wrong turns or life just saying it wasn’t going to work out for me, I now know that being destined to be the comic relief of life; to be the one others look at and say, “she made it, and so will I” means more than being number one. Hearing my children say, “Mom, I don’t think I’ve ever heard you laugh before” changed me. Life is so hard, and there are so many decisions that have to be made. Making a wrong turn is okay. It’s encouraged! There is a whole world out there waiting on me to find it. And find it I shall. My kids need to see that journey with me so that when they are adults, they remember that it’s okay to be wrong, it’s okay to cry and laugh; it’s okay to live.
