Cap and Gown ✔
Do you ever have those moments that same so surreal, you are pretty sure you're dreaming? Well that was me today picking up my cap and gown.
If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I would go back to college, I honestly would have laughed at you. Not to be rude, but just at the fact of how ridiculous that idea sounded. Me? College? Again? No way!
Fast forward a few years, and I thought what If? What if I go back to school? What if I get my degree? Then all the negative thoughts came too. What if you fail? What if you can't balance school and work?
Thankfully I was able to put those negative thoughts aside and jump right back in. I will tell you this, it definitely was not like riding a bike 😂 It was hard. Hard to make the transition back to a college student. Hard to balance work, school, and life. Hard to be a bit older than the others students in my classes.
Even though it was hard, it was worth it! Who would have thought this girl would be sitting here as a college graduate nearly ten years after I graduated high school? I definitely didnt, but so glad I am.
If I can do this, anyone can! Don't let society define the timeline for your success. It doesn't matter how long it takes, as long as you reach your goals.
