what a long strange trip it has been

Published January 17, 2017 by emotionless brain

It has been a while since I have blogged. I have had a lot of lessons over the past few years. I look at every experience as a lesson, and try to take away something to grow from the experience.  I have been thru natural disaster, personal loss, parenting disasters, and realize I am not as young as I want to think I am. 

I remember growing up I told myself that I never wanted to be like to older people, I never wanted to forgo the life force I had. I always believed in mind over matter and if I kept a young attitude I would stay young. Well my attitude may still be young but my body not so much. I accept that my body may not keep up as well, but I do not stop trying.

I start my first class in nearly 10 years, I have made a goal. By the time my children graduate high school I would like to also finally have achieved a college degree. I have set the goal, and I will succeed. That is the way I work, I make my mind to do something it will get done. Do I really need the college degree, well I have made it this far and been able to barely support myself. Probably not, I want my children to learn what was inherent to me. You can do whatever you set your mind to do. I also am challenging my own belief system, will that piece of paper make a difference in my income (but my kids do not know about this part).
