Back in College
Friday, March 25, 2011
I never thought that at the age of 45 I would be going to college! I am attending college working towards an Associates degree in Medical Assistant
. I will be finished with my first semester on March 31, 2011. It has been a winding road to say the least, having to get back in the mindset of going to four different classes and having to do homework and take tests.
Being that I am GOING to be a medical assistant I had to take a class amongst many that dealt with memorizing 350 medical terms (elements). I needless to say freaked out
I thought, at my age and having hypothyroidism (no thyroid) and all the lovely symptoms that go with it (still tweaking the meds) especially "brain fog" I would never be able to memorize 5 much less 350. Well I am proud to say that with my hardwork and determination I am now certified, I remembered every freaken one of those elements
We are never too old to go out there and take on the world and this also means our weight, our health, mind, body, and sole. I have not gotten there yet with my weight, but I can see now that if I can conquer that test I can conquer anything!!
With that being said, I want to tell all those men and women, even the young adults you can succeed and persevere in anything you want to do or get out of life. You just have to want it bad enough!! I wanted it and I grabbed it with both hands and did not let go, and will not let go! This was a huge awakening for me that I will now carry into my weight loss, no more feeling sorry for myself or blaming other people in my past and health issues, it is on me and up to me to take charge of MY life from now on!!!!
I am going to be that shining star you see in the sky at night
God Bless and know he is shining down on each and everyone of us with a helping hand.
