School started Monday and I’m taking online classes. After logging on that first day and getting started, I felt completely overwhelmed. I began thinking about how I’m 28 years old and just recently in the last year started pursuing my AA degree. I started wondering- why now? What will it even do? All this work and stress... for what? A piece of paper? This is consuming so much of my time, etc. I honestly thought about just saying fuck it and dropping out. So, I meditated on it and sat with it.
First off, I realized I was being negative AF. Also, if I’m going to think of the negative possibilities, it’s only fair to throw out the positives as well. So- why not now? What better time than now? I’m ONLY 28, & yeah, I have no college degree.. but I’ve also been busy fighting for my life, which I’d never regret putting first. What will it do? Allow me to pursue a goal of mine that I’ve wanted for a longggg time- being the only one in my family to graduate from college. All the work and stress? That comes with any goal... nothing worth it in life comes easy. It’s not about the piece of paper, it’s about going after what I want in life... and if down the road I decide it’s no longer a goal of mine, I know that I will have stopped for the right reasons.
Next time you find yourself in a similar predicament, thinking about all of the possible negative aspects of the situation you’re in... ask yourself- what would happen if things did turn out well or in your favor?
