Last year, at the age of 35, I decided to take courage and become what I hoped my daughter would be. I was scared of failure. But I realised it’s not brave if your not scared. This was a huge decision for our family because my husband is also in school. We knew that large sacrifices would be made to accomplish both of our goals. But I wanted to change my legacy, my world. So I studied as hard as I could to take the entrance exams! And I blew it out of the water. Who knew? I now have a 4.0 GPA and I’m 3 classes away from nursing school. As a nurse, with my love and concern for others, I will offer comfort on dark and dreary days and hopefully change someone else’s world.
I took courage and changed my world. This, for me, was like moving mountains. And I’m doing it. My daughter will be what I’ve always dreamed of being because her mother had the courage to move mountains!
