Once again time has gotten away from me, but that happens to each of us all the time. Life. School, work, kids, family, etc. and we try to throw in anything that will get us away from the same day to day monotonous routine. Within the past few months I have had a lot going on and most have been an effect on my grades with my online school. The grades I am earning right now are a “C”. I know, you’re thinking that barely makes it. I’m embarrassed to say it..poor C. I’m three to four classes away from earning my Associates Degree. I should be excited because seeking an education through online access is far from easy when you have a full time job with a full time course load and everything else in your life taking turns to be shine.
Ok, so here I am with sight of my Associates Degree for Web Design almost in my hands, moving up the GS federal ladder with a new position come February, new used car and new home. It feels good to be blessed to say all of that. This is certainly the time of year when we only occupy ourselves with how much we go into debt for our friends and loved ones only to be miserable with the results later. I am certainly in no position to give advice as if I have not felt the same pressure, because I have. I don’t blame any delays in my life on another person. We are all in control. Everything happens for a reason, there is a reason for everything. I need to do better and must be better. I don’t like to wait until the New Year to make resolutions. No one should wait until that moment to say, hey, I need to change this or fix that, or I want to learn how to do this or that. It is your prerogative, do it now. Take small measurable pieces that you can achieve and make it happen. For me, I want to lose weight. Because I love food, it is an easy goal to say, I’m going to lose 10 pounds even though it would be better at 20. Taking things slow does not mean it will never be done. Just sitting around waiting for a holiday to come around like New Years is more of a time waster. I hope you will take that journey for yourselves, whether it be school, new look, new job, new home, car, whatever. Don’t let anyone get in your way of what will make you happy. Those are not people who care about you and what to see you succeed. We all have them. Make the best of your life. Mistakes are not bad, they’re growth. You can do it!
Until next time we chat.
