This is very exciting to me, last week was Tom’s first week back to being a college student. I know some may thinks this sounds mean but Thursday nights when he is in class are going to be fun times with just me and the kiddos. I got so used to him being gone (during training and his deployment) and the use not having much time together because he worked during the day and I worked at night and then the time where he was working during the day and I went to school at night. So these past 17 months of him being home and us basically spending 27 hours a day 7 days a week (with the exception of when I went to Texas for a week) have been quite a challenge. I think it really does have an impact on people when they are around each other all day long every single day, just as it does for those who are apart more then they are together.
So back to him being in school again, I am proud of him for going back as he went to college while he was in the military and because of his work schedule and my school schedule he had to stop. I know what a challenge going back to school can be when you have been out for a long time (I went back to school in 2008 after not being in school since 2003).
You maybe wondering why I am sharing this with all of you and I am because I feel it is important. I am not talking about going back to school(while I do feel education is very important) but I am sharing it with you because it is important to always have faith in yourself and I know going back to school is not easy for him and we all have things that we need to do that are not easy but having faith in ourselves will take us a long way! No matter what it is whether it be using your coupons to save money, or it is pushing yourself to better yourself, or just doing something that you want to do, having faith in yourself and knowing that you can do it will get you far in life and I want you all to have faith in yourselves and believe that you can do anything you want to if you put your mind to it 🙂 I know it is a challenge for him to go back to school and I know we all face them including me in my daily life, we all do but keeping a positive out look and faith in ourselves is what makes us all strong positive people.
I challenge you to do the same and do something no matter what it is(from cooking a new recipe you have wanted to try or doing something new like a new activity) to have faith in yourself and try it 🙂
What is something that you have wanted to do?
