Have you ever turned left and wondered where you would have ended up if you turned right.?
I was probably the most "ill prepared for life" teenager.
I was what we called a "dork" in Australian slang.
I lived in my own world but yearned to burst from the bubble, somehow, deep down I knew I would do it one day.
Like many of you, I've walked down many roads. That of being a parent of a large multiracial adoptive family.
A sad track through foster care for children in trauma.
The excitement of Fashion Design and photgraphy and Quilting.
Sometimes, looking for adventure, I would turn right and sample a little of what was presented there, but nervously I chose to turn back on the path of security and comfort.
At other times, I took the risk and found rocky terrain that I had to work to smooth out but it was worth the risk in the end.
Right now I'm in my "right' phase…. and I'm enjoying every minute.
