Life Lessons of 2008: Number 3

Ain't nothing to it, but to do it.

Since 1998, I've been talking about going back to school "one day" and "hopefully" becoming a nurse. I was always careful to throw those "one days" and "hopefullys" in there...just in case I never got around to it.

After a year or so of procrastination, I started back to school in the summer of 2008. I was so intimidated by that first course...it was hard to make myself sign up for it. I kept coming up with excuses...I missed the early enrollment...The classes that I want are full...It's too expensive, let's just wait...It's summer, I should wait until the kids are back in school.

The One heard EVERY excuse under the sun as to why I hadn't enrolled. See this is another reason I love him so much. He listened to all that, day after day...most men would've said, "Forget it...do whatever you want to do." Not him. He lovingly told me, "Just do it, babe. Don't worry about the money or the kids...we'll work it out...I'll work it out." He's incredible.

So, I did it. I enrolled and have been taking classes for 3 semesters. I love it. It feels so good to be learning again. So good, in fact, that I now KNOW I will be a nurse...and I'm "hoping" that "one day" I'll be a PA or an MD.

One degree at a time!
