Today marks the first day of a new journey of personal growth. Today I begin college courses. I was enrolled in college 15 years ago, but I wasn’t ready…at all! I dropped out and jumped into the working world, married life and mommyland. I have certainly been blessed over the years with some pretty great jobs for little ole uneducated me. But I can’t carry this regret anymore. There are choices in our life that we can’t change, and there are ones that we absolutely can do something about. I am doing something about it. With lots of prayers and a guiding hand I am going to get a degree.
I’m starting small, one step at a time. I’ve enrolled in online studies through a local university. My short term goal is to earn my Associate of Arts in Liberal Art emphasizing in journalism and creative writing by December of 2015. After that……one step at a time.
Not gonna lie I am scared out of my mind. Am I smart enough? Do I have time for this? What’s the point, I have a great job? Will I even use this degree professionally? The thing that keeps coming to my mind as I run through these questions over and over is this verse from The Message….
Bettering yourself is never a bad thing, it’s always worth it. We got this. The freedom to learn continues in new direction today!
