I made it

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I made it through this semester. Today was my last day of this semester. Looking back, if it was NOT for the GRACE of God - I would not have made it through (any!!) the first 8 weeks of this semester! I was in so much pain and discomfort with the surgeries and the stent..

I had doctors, my counselor, and family tell me to drop a class, not to push myself. I started out with four classes... full time... 15 credits..... one was online and only 8 weeks long in the beginning of the semester.

I was suppose to be graduating - RIGHT NOW... I am one credit short. No I am not sorry! No I do not regret anything that I have done or not done. That one credit was a miscount on my counselors back in October! I am OK with that! I am moving ONward and forward! I will be done in July.

As I left the building today, I cried. My favorite professor, Mr L. IKamas has been battling cancer, he was the ONLY professor I took twice! He teaches logic and philosophy. The only conclusion that I came to know in logic, I am the most ILLOGICAL person - because I am a person of FAITH. The only conclusion I came to know in philosophy, MY PHILOsophy is NOT your philosophy and YOUR philosophy is not my philosophy. If you talk to a philosophy major, he would tell you this statement is WRONG! and I would Laugh Out Loud! LOL ... because philosophy is the LOVE of Wisdom. I consider myself a student of wisdom; as in all things I look for the lesson that I should learn, the things that should teach me, the things that should make me think outside of the box, extending myself in situations that I am not comfortable in - meaning stepping outside of my comfort zone.

When I was younger (34 ish) I said I wanted to be a student my entire life, because I love learning. Being a student of life is a choice.

God Bless you!
Jeanla

    Nothing stops us from continuing to learn as we age but ourselves. I admire the determination you have shown during this tough period of your life. Stay positive and focused on regaining your health. -- Lou

    Good for you Jeanla, I love your statement Love of Wisdom, i know i pray for wisdom all the time. My hubby says GOD must not be tuned into me some times. LOL.
    Stepping out side ones comfort zone is very hard sometimes.
    My daughter is a life time student, loves to learn. Both my sons are the same way, not students, but learning new things. I think you are a strong person, best wishes to you.
