Back to School

Hi everybody, I'm back!!!! Happy to hear that all you wonderful people had a great time at Blogher and made it home safe.

Next Monday, I go back to school. After 17 years of being out of school, I decide to go back. What's wrong with me? Am I terrified, of course I am. Do I understand that nothing in life stays the same and we have to roll with the punches? Of course, I do!!

Guess what, I can do it!!! I should have done this 25 years ago, but life gets in the way. We have kids, we get married and life seems to control us. What's wrong with taking back my life and being the one in control.

I give kudo's to those that realize life never stays the same and does something about it. Yesterday, I went to the nearest career center and saw people that were eager to get back to work and were willing to do anything to do it. I also saw some people that looked as if they were wondering why they were there. People wake up and smell the coffee. If you want work, then pull yourself up out of your slump, act like your alive and do something about it.

I guess I learned that from my daddy or I learned the hard way. I am a hustler, not in a bad way, but in a good way. I will do whatever it takes to keep my head afloat and not lose everything that I worked so hard to get.

I realize I don't need diamonds, fancy cars, or lots of money in the bank. What I need is a roof over my head, food in my families bellies and enough money to pay my bills.

If your reading this, what have you done today to make your life better?

Good luck! You are very brave. I'm terrified of going back to school. If it is something you really want to do, you will succeed!
