In 2011 I let people in my life dictate my well being, my worth, my me. Not anymore. In my search for answers and why me me me, I realized I wasn't the one with the problem, these people hurting me where the ones with the problem. They are the ones with a low self worth or why else would they find such joy in hurting, not forgiving and punishing me. I turned my sadness into joy and now pray for these people daily and wish them nothing but happiness and success even though they don't feel the same about me. I turned my sorrow into finally finishing my Associates Degree in Elementary Education from Lee College. It was a tough semester with some sacrifices me and my family had to make but WE did it. I then turned my sorrow into getting accepted to the University of Houston Clear Lake and I am proud to say I will begin there next week with a plan to graduate in May of 2014 with my teaching degree. My husband and I made the decision to take out a student loan to pay for these last two years and I am proud to say my husband paid for my associates degree with no help. I applied for and received two grants and one scholarship as well. I have been truly blessed with the MOST AMAZING man on earth, my husband.
I would like to end by tooting a little horn! Everyone should toot their own horn! I was nominated for The National Society of Leadership and Success, Sigma Alpha Pi. I can not wait to see what the future holds for me and my family.
This is Me, Then.
