Today was Lucas 1st day of school. As expected he didn’t even say goodbye. He was eager, exited and happy. He jumped off the car and didn’t look back. Off he went to his new adventure with curiosity and joy.
Today I was accepted at Hawthorn University for their Masters in Clinical Nutrition and Health Program. I have waited with great anticipation for this day; now that it’s here I felt immobilized. This is not a spur of the moment decision. My husband and I planned and waited for the right time for me to do this. The time is here. It’s a wonderful opportunity for me, but I’m scared. Will I be able to manage my time wisely so I can devote myself to this new endeavor? Will I be doing good-by my kids? Will I be able to keep our household afloat? Will this put a financial strain in our family? Am I being selfish? Am I capable of succeeding in this new adventure? Or will I finally go clinically insane?!
As all these doubts and fear run through my head, the memory of Lucas walking into school today gives me courage. As per usual my 4-year-old has schooled me. Sometimes in life you just have to jump off the car and never look back. I will not let fear stir this new adventure. As of today I am welcoming this new challenge with excitement and a curious heart. For all of you I wish a new opportunity in every corner, an open heart so you can see it and a spirit full or courage to go with every new adventure. There is a window open for all of us.
This is a brand new day my friends, embrace it!
