"What brought you here?"
I guess it's quite common to ask that to someone who is new to the area.
And I always answer in the same boring response. The husbands fault. I kid, I kid (even though it's true), but I do give the same story about the job transfer... yada, yada, yada.
Sometimes I just want to make up a crazy story just to see the looks on people's faces.
But then I got to thinking about the deeper meaning of, "what brought you here?" As in where you're at in your life at the moment.
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a blogger, a chauffeur, a maid, a chef (and not a very good one), a bill payer, a butt and nose wiper (important jobs I tell you!), an aerobic diva (hey, I like that title!), and the list goes on and on.
So many circumstances in our life lead us to where we are right now, they are the things that got us here. The good and the bad. And I say embrace them because really, they are what has shaped and formed who we are.
So my question to you is what brought YOU here? Discuss.
