Today I finished my last class for my Bachelor's degree in human services. More than four years ago I had no high school diploma and very little hopes for my future. I suffered from debilitating anxiety that kept me a prisoner in my own home for many years, afraid of anything and everything.
In the past four and a half years, I have earned my GED, fallen in love and gotten married, obtained a full-time job that I love, and attended and finished college. I am forever grateful for the people who have helped me along the way and encouraged me to make changes to do better things with my life.
So I am done with school and I am still working at the same place I have been for the past 4 months and I plan to continue working with them with the hopes that eventually I'll be able to apply for a position that will enable me to use the skills and knowledge that I have obtained over the past 4 years while earning my degree.
My focus now is going to be solely on working on myself and my health. I want to make better choices for myself and ensure that I will be around for a very long time so that I can leave this world a much better place. I have a lot of years left to live and in many ways my journey is just beginning.
