It isn’t that I am quitting or giving up. I have done what I needed to do and now I am ready to move forward with what has been calling me for years. I cannot say that I am completely finished with college, but for now something else is calling me.
I have proven to myself that I can successfully pass college levels courses. I have proven that I am smart. I have immensely enjoyed learning and pushing myself beyond what I thought I could ever do.
But it was during my fit last week of attempting to solve the next 4 years scheduling problems, a wise woman gently reminded me that a master’s degree will not define you, only you define you. Ah….yes.
I am ready to peel back another layer of me and look within. I know that something magnificent resides there and that is what my heart is calling me to do next. I can confidently finish this semester knowing that I have done what I needed to do on the journey of self-discovery and now it is time to practice a different kind of ambition.
It is time and I am more than ready.
