At 44 nothing in my life is what I expected. But it is a beautiful life! I didn’t end up with the husband, children, house, etc. Instead I am divorced, childless (not by choice), I live with my mother, boyfriend, two dogs, and a cat. I own my own business and I am a full time college student. This blog is about my unexpected journey through life. I thought I would be married forever, adopting a child, and running a business with my now ex husband. However, I am now happier than I have ever been even though my life does not fit the norm of what a 44 year old woman’s life is supposed to be according to American culture. I am sure that I am not the only person who is in a different place than they thought they’d end up in. I have come to understand that true success is being happy.
