Final paper submitted. First term of my doctoral program completed. Feeling accomplished. Praising God.
In June, I decided to make my 45th year, special. I needed to celebrate me. I can’t explain it. There’s something about turning 40 that’s life changing. However, 45 is like the year of awesomeness– EMPOWERMENT! Like I said, I can’t explain it. You have to experience it for yourself.
After spending an amazing birthday weekend with friends, I decided to take the leap. Should’ve been a year into a program anyway. The goal was to enroll after Ki (my daughter) graduated from college. Well, here I am a year later, pursuing my doctorate in Public Health. It’s already been rough. I’ve had to make a lot of adjustments. I have very little free time, and in a few weeks I won’t have any. However, I’m taking it all in stride. My wise, little sister said, “Every day is a day closer to graduation.” Something like that- Lol. And she’s right.
One term down. Many more to go. I can do this!!
