The Master Mind
Going to school as an adult (25+) can be the most rewarding yet exhausting life journey. I just want to stop in and give a little encouragement to anyone on this path, because you’re an amazing human. I also want to say GOOD FOR YOU! I know first-hand what it costs to do this. Those late nights and early mornings (still have to pay the bills, right?). To the moms out there who are on this path, please know that you are setting a beautiful example by doing this! Just to take the encouragement a bit further, those of you who have a spouse, GOOD FOR YOU!! Lol. It helps when you have support on those late nights and get coffee brewed for you on those early morning.
Finding your purpose and educating yourself is a must in this life, and to be able to experience this as an adult is eye opening. It’s appreciated and it is holding a huge amount value to us, because we pay for this out of our pockets. Deciding to go back can be scary, however trust me when I say you’ll get the hang of it.
If I may give some advice on this matter- take as much time as you need when it comes to completing this degree. Rather it’s your first or fifth, you are in the right place at the right time. I have learned to not take on extra huge loads just to “get it over with”, it’s been proven to me that burn out happens so quickly when you do that. Also, take advantage of tutoring! I can’t express how thankful I was to have someone read over my paper prior to hitting submit. The most important piece of advice I have is have mercy on yourself! Yes, you’re a Mother, an Employee or Employer, a Wife or Girlfriend, a Sister, a Cousin, and a Friend. But most importantly you are a Woman bettering herself! They will understand if you can’t come. They will understand if you go M.I.A. They will understand if you only have an hour to spare! And if they don’t.... the middle finger is always an option in my book.
You are an AMAZING human and you’re setting a BEAUTIFUL example!!
