About 3 years ago when I decided to go back to school, I was a little nervous. I felt as if the journey I was about to embark on was maybe just a little crazy. Even for me. I reached out to the person that always seems to have the best advice on ..well everything. My Dad. My Dad is probably the smartest person I have ever met. He's really lived his life and has a way of putting things into perspective for me.
I reached out to him via e-mail. With him living in England, the time difference can sometimes get the best of us. I had asked him if what I wanted was to far fetched, if it was unattainable and just a dream that I should keep as just a dream. His reply to me hit home - it made complete sense, not just for school, but for everything. It became my life's motto. Thank you, Dad - sometimes words can change someone's life.
That very day I wrote my Dad's quote inside my binder. Every day that I opened it I was reminded. That reminder got me through some tough days. I'm still on the journey with college. It might be a very long time until I'm done, but at least I can say that there will be a day that I will finish.
