    • heart Since I first started this group I have been inspired by alot of things and people and shared it along the way. But, this time I inspired myself and I’m really proud of it.
      I took my first step today. I enrolled to go back to college and obtain a completely new degree.
      I know it is sorta silly due to the odds of me not being here to finish it or start a new career even if by the grace of God I’m still alive. But, that’s not really important.
      I am starting a completely new book not just a chapter!! My husband is worried due to the fact I won’t be happy taking a class or two. And as you know he’s right. But it feels so.... New!
      What is inspiring about this? Well, that I’m not afraid. That I’m not living like my path is on it’s last miles , how ever many I have.
      I know that my health will at times make this journey hard, frustrating , and sometimes might seem unobtainable. But I’m ok with that as well.
      It is showing my children that NO matter what life gives you , you must live it with gusto, fullness, and improvement. Never settle. Never except if you can give more to get more. What I mean by that is give more to your life so in turn your life gives more back to you. I’m adding more meaning to my life.
      What’s more inspiring than getting every ounce out of your life with joy , friends, love, compassion and improvement? When I say improvement I am not meaning the change in career or school.
      Improvement for me in this case is showing my children that life is worth living no matter what you got going against you. It’s quality of your life,
      By going back to school it makes me face the unknown. It’s a challenge that keeps me fighting. So, now matter what I can proudly say ” I never quit. ” might of adjusted a few times lol but that’s alright because if we don’t adjust well life will do it for you.
      So, selfish as this post is ... I’ve inspired myself this time and I hope that’s alright this time.
      Thank you for reading

      Love it
