5 best decisions

Yesterday, as I was having a cup of tea in my kitchen, it dawned on me that it's been about 10 years since Marcus and I went on our first date.  Ten yearsAlready.  In some ways it feels like it has flown by.

In others, it's sort of hard to imagine that we've packed in as much as we have in just 10 years.

So I was thinking how different my life is now from when, say, I was 21, just graduating from university.  There's no way, at that age, I could've ever predicted that I would be here, living this life, right now.  So I took to twitter:


The responses that started trickling in were amazing.  So I thought I'd share:

Schmutzie, a cancer survivor


Tanis, also known as the Redneck Mommy


Heather Barmore


KateAnon, another cancer survivor


 Kim of Prairie Mama


Nicole Blades of Ms. Mary Mack


My buddy Brené.


There were so many more people who responded -- thank you.  All of your responses really affected me.  And tell me I'm right:  if this doesn't illustrate the resilience of the human spirit, then honey, I don't know what does.

So how about you -- what are the 5 best decisions you've made in your adult life so far?


(And happy Love Thursday, friends.  Love your life today.)
