Time passes fast. Sometimes too fast.
Our wedding was a simple affair, taking place on a Tuesday afternoon at the City Hall Chapel surrounded by Family and friends. It was perfect. I loved how casual it was, how relaxed it turned out.
When I envisioned the future, I saw us together, just as in love, raising our children.
Thankfully, I was right.
But what if I wasn’t? What if I woke up one day and life wasn’t what it was “suppose to be”? What if it wasn’t how I’d imagined/dreamed/thought it would be?
What would I do?
In What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, a BlogHer Book Club selection, this is exactly what happens to the Alice. After she hits her head at the gym, she loses the last 10 years of her life and thinks she is 29, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child.
The truth is she’s 39, a mother to 3 children, and going through a nasty divorce. She also learns she is not the person she used to be and is seemingly disliked by numerous people.
I enjoyed this fun and quick read. I found myself wanting to get to the end to see how it all turned out. I wasn’t disappointed.
And throughout the book I found myself wondering about life and our dreams and how they can be so different from what we imagined.
Is your life how you thought it to would be?
