2009 – I was a wife and mum to two,  telemarketing communicator who loved to read, and dabble in a little word craft.

    It is awesome to look back 10 years and reflect where we were, where we are, and how far we have come. Amazing how much 10 years are in a life. Every time I look back I am amazed by how different my life has become, how much I achieved, how much changed (under or our of my control), and how many new things and activities have entered my life which I had never thought of before. Life is amazing! Cheers to development πŸ₯‚

    Ten years ago I was celebrating my 25th year of teaching preschool. I had gone to a fabulous teacher conference where a famous author was the keynote speaker, which would trigger my being part of the next edition of his book. I met Millie the quilter, which would begin a decade of making quilts that hang in places of prominence. Grandchildren at last!

    Ten years ago I was an exec with a well-known telecommunications company. Today I’m a published author of five books and the sixth is to be launched this spring. Happy New Year, Ritu.

    2009: was a husband and father of one, with a career I loved in sport.

    2019: I’m a divorced father of two, with a new career in mental health, a blog, and two published books.

    Fair to say I wouldn’t have been expecting to write that 10 years ago!

    10 years I was struggling as I was adjusting to our move to a new city with 2 teens. Today I am thriving, pursuing my goals instead of standing on the sidelines. My husband and I are empty nesters and we are so proud of our β€œchildren” who are young adults now living their best life!!! It’s been a journey πŸ™πŸΌ. Happy New Year πŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒπŸΌ

    Lol, 10 years ago, I was teaching special needs children (teaching being a bucket list, long-desired goal in life), single, nervous, overweight, high blood pressure, and worried constantly, reading, but no writing outside of school work and college.
    Today, stroke survivor, blessed person, new spirituality, medically stable blood pressure, no longer nervous, weight down, worry down, reading, writing – published author of 7 short stories, blogger with over 1k posts and loving life so very much – still single.
