As the craze for the "ten year challenge" spreads across social media, I bet many of you have either participated in it and offered your own side-by-side pictures of yourself in 2009 and 2019, or at least considered it. I'll be honest, I've wanted to do it. The problem is that I can't find one photo of myself from 2009 or the next few years. There are pictures of my kids, and my husband, but none of me. It brings me back to who I was ten years ago.
I have learned that it doesn't matter what we do with our lives as long as we are fulfilled and contributing. Working parents are not better or worse than stay-at-home parents. We have a whole lot in common. Our kids take precedence over everything in our lives. Their health, well-being, and happiness matter so much to us that sometimes we put our own health, well-being, and happiness on hold for them. That's what I did ten years ago, and I won't let that happen again.
