It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “At a Parental Crossroads” who wondered if she should move away from her kids to pursue her dream of becoming a geologist at a school in her hometown, or move with her military ex-husband and children to an area that doesn’t have any schools with the degree she’s interested in. After the jump, find out what she decided to do.
I’m glad you made the decision to stay with your kids. You can always pursue dreams, but you never get time back with your kids when they’re young. Good luck with your move.
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.
