Reflections... and dreams

I find that during this Thanksgiving time I look back at how far I have come and reflect on it and give thanks that I have made this progress.

Just 3 years ago I was unsure of making a huge life change. Could I actually go back to college? Would I be able to make it in classes with 19 year olds? Could I get grades higher than a C? How would I deal with all that and a new house, town, no local family support, no job?

I have found that thankfully when things are suppose to be it just happens --falls into place. You give yourself fully, without regret. Now, I need to be able to apply the same philosophy and freedom to my feelings in other areas of life.

I still struggle each and every day with the financial sacrifice I have made to go after this goal but knowing I am doing this to better my future and the future of my daughter's --this provides me with hope. It is a good lesson to them of how important education is and to start out with that foundation so you don't have to tackle it later in life.

There is nothing more I want right now in this world than to be a NURSE. I want the stability and comfort that a career gives. Simple stuff, why does it seem like a dream still?


  • Best of luck with your goals... Your post really resonated for me. I agree, you have to make that leap of faith and if it is meant to be believe things will work out. That and a little old-fashioned hard work and we will get through this yet.

  • I can sooo relate to your post. I have just completed 3 years at Uni and I still have 1 to go! I both anticipate and dread going out to work, to finally earn money, to stand proudly as a nurse and to test myself and my ability to truly stand on my own with my own responsibilities.
