best christmas gift

  1. :Santa1: Merry Christmas everyone! I wish everyone a safe and blessed holiday. I am very thankful this christmas, I graduated last week with my Associates Degree, and I am so very excited for me and my family. These last four years have been very hard on us, but now I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now I just have to prepare to take my state boards. I know I need to start atudying for them, but everytime I try I get distracted. Could it be I am finally burned out from studying? Anyone with any suggestions?

    I got to watch an old video of me as a kid. I realized how much I was still the same! I am still the dork I always was!
    I got to see myself 15 years ago and say, I am still the same person I used to be. It's amazing, I believe we are all born with a personality that stays with us our entire lives and we play such an important role being ourselves.
    I saw my grandfather who passed away due to parkinsons. It was painful to see my grandmother getting tears in her eyes. But it really makes me want to make every waking moment with my family one to treasure and never have to wonder if I cared enough.
    I understood something tonight, that we are all here assigned to a certain role, one which we can never change but yet we can find peace if we are at peace with ourselves and not try to be something else. It makes such a beautiful balance. What I experienced tonight is beyond words. I can't ask for anything more.
    Life is beautiful.

    Congrats,, i agree take a little time over the holidays for yourself and family. As soon as the new year hits, get that ATT in get your date set,, and start studying until time to test. Dont wait, dont put it off with feelings of not having studied enough. The longer you wait the LESS fresh the information you just learned is in your head. Good luck and heres to a prosperous new year for you and your family.
