A little over a year ago, I submitted my LAST assignment as an undergraduate and TODAY is the day that I graduated. The feeling I had couldn't be caught with pictures but we tried!
How could it when it took me so long to get to that point....10 years to get a 4 year degree that should have taken 3 since I took classes in high school.
That degree, means more to me than the accomplishment of getting a paper to frame or a couple lines to add to my resume.
It showed me I could do ANYTHING (Phil 4:13) when I put God first, when I put my fears aside, when I decide enough is enough, when being a better example for little man became stronger than my excuses, when I decided that NOTHING was going to stop me from continuing and FINISHING my degree!!!
Now, when I feel like I can't possibly accomplish something, I look back on this moment and I'm like...
Remember that time when all odds were against you, when you started pursuing your degree again as a single mom, when you would stay up two nights in a row because of work and school projects, when tears would flow because it seemed like too much and YOU MADE IT HAPPEN ANYWAY???
Yeah...You've got this too!
My point? That goal, that dream, that life that you think is so far away....IT'S NOT. You have time when you make time. And when you decide enough is enough, you WILL find a way to make it happen!
I'm a walking example of what can happen when you never give up & never give in. GET UP > GO OUT and work to make your dreams come true!
