I have officially lost my mind
I earned a degree about 17 yrs ago without much thought to what I would do with it (math). It brought with it good opportunities and a great start for our family. I was a computer programmer for the Department of Defense for about 10 years, but it was not something I loved (or liked… heck I could barely tolerate it for a while). But we are grateful that I had the opportunity for such a great job at a time when my husband was finishing up school and our babies were being born…
Then we moved, and I followed my passion into a full time job as a photographer and studio owner. That is what I do today, and I LOVE my job – really LOVE it. And I am grateful for that opportunity too – it pays much less but it so much richer in other ways.
The past few years I’ve had the good fortune to have other passions ignited that inspire me as well – for health and fitness… and in following that passion in my “spare” time, this girl decided to sign up for some college classes to do some learnin’
I can’t lie – it’s scary! I always did very well in school – I am good at it (or was)… BUT the first time around I didn’t have kids, or a husband, or dogs, or a full time job… and I wasn’t all that interested in finding time to workout and eat right. But to be honest those things are now my priority – it will be weird going to school knowing it’s important, but not at the top of the priority list. Other things will continue to be more important and that’s gonna be a balancing act! I’ll be “finding time” for this instead of “finding time” for other things.
Wish me luck!!!
