I have not blogged in a while, simply because I was trying to figure out this thing we call life.
As you may know, I have started my Masters program this Fall. Everything was going perfectly fine until I received a not so pleasant grade. I have never in all 23 years of my life received a 60% on any of my papers. I was completely devastated!
Whenever I received a C on any of my assignments in undergrad I would do everything I could to bring my grade up. In this case, I did nothing. I had no desire to do anything. I sat and I looked at why I was in grad school. I wrote down all of the things I wanted to do and who I wanted to become in my journal.
In that moment I realized I was in grad school for all of the wrong things. I was in grad school because I felt I had to be. I felt I had to get a masters degree to be successful. I felt I had to get it right now before life started to happen.
In actuality, life was happening and I did not need to obtain my masers degree right now to be successful.
Success is what I say success is…not anyone else.
I believe in higher education and I will go back to obtain my masters. However, it will be in something that I am passionate.
I am sharing this with you because, for a very long time I did things I felt I should be doing , instead of doing things I love. You NEVER want to do something because others tell you to do it. Your family and friends will support you in whatever you decide to do!
I have developed a plan A and I trust God will see it through. Life is going to happen…it is happening right now. It’s not about pleasing others and doing what they feel would make you successful. It is about what YOU want to do and what you believe success is.
In the words of me, live life on purpose and do what makes you happy!
