Initially, I was surprised to open the email telling me that I had been chosen to have a turn at addressing subscribers to the Listserve. Upon further reflection, it was much less surprising…so many nice things have been happening in my life lately that this opportunity makes perfect sense.
Today I am graduating with my master’s degree. Today, as in a few hours. I am beyond thrilled to be here, so happy that my son will see the results of my hard work. and excited to see what the future holds. I am a 40-ish single mom to a wonderful teenage boy, I work full-time plus, and there have been many times when I would swear there are not enough hours in the day to complete all that I have to do. Somehow I was able to squeeze out enough time and energy to finish this degree. I hope that my experience demonstrates that it is never too late, you are never too old, and you can (and will!) accomplish anything that you set your mind and heart to. Think about what you really, really want...and start today. I promise you will be rewarded, if for no other reason than you tried. Cheesy? Maybe...but so very true.
What will YOU do?
