I am brand new to the boards as of this morning and I am soooo super proud to say that I was re-accepted into the nursing program at my school starting this fall!!!
I had gone a couple years ago for one semester of pre-nursing and got my psychology, A&P I and Math in but didn't continue into the program. A lot of the reason was because I had a brand new baby girl but a lot of it was also because I felt constricted by my past.
Now, I have been able to move on and not let the past dictate how I feel or what I do any longer. I am 30 years old and I feel almost like a kid again starting my life over. I am finally doing what I want to do for ME and for my family. I have three children and I know this is going to be tough, but I also know that I have it in me to do it.
I am super grateful for the opportunity to go to school this fall, since I applied three weeks after the deadline and there is a waiting list of 60+ people to start in the fall. I feel like there is a reason that I was chosen and I am not going to give up.
I almost feel like a new person. I have been taking better care of myself and my family and I can feel like more than "just a mom" now.
