Who knew a purchase I had to force myself to make would arrive on a day I felt so down making my spirits rise a bit. Thankful for that.
It’s that time again! Dry erase boards are one of my fave things thanks to my primerica family (I love you guys 😁😘). I use them to write down my goals w|what I need to do to achieve those goals underneath. Throughout my journey of achievement I’m able to come back to the board & cross off what I’ve accomplished, add some things & even adjust what’s already there. Having it in plain sight allows me to stay on track daily to what I plan on #HappyNewDay #PlanToAchieve
Growing up in my community of family & friends of the family, there is an aura of disappointment & lack of success when one is no longer in school. At times I get where this aura is coming from, many in my community haven’t been to school & wish for their offspring to do better than they have done. However, school only serves a purpose for certain people at certain times in their life. Meaning, school isn’t for everyone & school isn’t only able to be fulfilled during the teenage to early twenty years of your life. Now, do I condone a mass drop out in school? No, however, I do condone finding what’s for you.
I’m currently not in school because at this moment my purpose isn’t school. May be hard for certain people to understand this, but I’m simply not in school because of that reason. Do I want to go back to school? Yes, I eventually want my PhD. but I only want it, & will get it, when it’s my time to.
I have 2 more classes left for my bachelor’s. So this news to my community of family & friends of the family is borderline devastating. Not my problem though. At the end of the day I know what I am doing is right, for my purpose. As long as I don’t stray I will be okay. I cannot speak for them. It is none of my business of how they mourn the decisions of my life. If that’s how they decide to live theirs, so be it. That’s their business. But me, I won’t let them steer me away from where I’m going.
& if you are going through something similar I encourage you to do the same.
