Erin 2.0: In Omnia Paratus
A right brained creative, part time social media strategist, full time middle school teacher, bacon lover, goofy nerd, happy introvert and single mom starting over.
My whole life I had a plan. Go to college, get your degree, get a job, get a house, get a dog, kiss a few frogs along the way, find a Prince Charming, create a family, live happily ever after. Seemed simple enough. I worked hard and almost managed to accomplish all of my goals. Almost.
I earned three degrees, started teaching, bought a house, got two dogs, kissed my fair share of frogs, found my prince, and was blessed with the biggest joys of my life, a son and later a daughter. And that’s about where my master plan fell apart.
Turns out teaching middle schoolers isn’t as fabulous as it used to be and the fairy tales apparently neglect to mention that sometimes Prince Charming turns back into a frog. Whoops. Who knew?
Now, I’m starting over as a single mom with two small kids.
I’m trying new things, making new plans, finding a new path and embracing my creativity. It’s exciting, and terrifying, and liberating, and anxiety inducing, but I’m ready for it. I have to be.
In Omnia Paratus – Ready for Anything.
