End of an Era

In 48 hours an era in my life will officially come to a close.  I will finally close a book that some days felt would never be closed.  I will wave goodbye to a very long process in my life. I will complete a dream.  In 48 hours, I will officially have graduated with a second masters degree.

I am feeling a bit sentimental about all of it.  You see, I was the girl that wasn’t sure she would ever finish her undergraduate career, let alone one masters degree.  I was the girl who didn’t care about school/studying and would rather live a social life.  I was the girl who didn’t really care to attend classes or do what was needed.

And now, I can officially say I’m done with two master’s degrees and that I’m stinking proud!  I’ve been in school for what feels like forever.

I’ve been asked a lot lately when I plan to go back to school again.  And to those people, I simply laugh.  I’m not 100% sure I’ll never go back but I can say for now, I’m pleased with the level of education I have achieved and I have no desire to go back anytime soon.

I guess I share all of this with you to tell you that you can do it too.  Even if people have told you that you can’t, you can!  Even if you have never believed you could do it, you can!  Even if you don’t have an end goal in sight, you can!

God has given you more strength, willpower, get up and go, and gumption than you know.  If you are questioning if you can do it, just remember, you once had to learn to use a toilet, and you succeeded at that.  So in reality, you can do pretty much anything!
