- I got accepted into East-West University yesterday afternoon after taking a tour, getting a feel for the place, and peeping that tuition. Maaaan.....A BLESSING.
- I have another secret to share here, but I can't speak on it until March 16th. Put it this way--if you're around the Chicago Cultural Center, you might wanna swing by Sunday morn. ;)
These are two personal victories for me. The first has been a long time coming, after honestly being in a dark place about being 28, without the degree I want, and seeing sooooo many people I know with that paper and the life I want. This is the thing--comparing myself to them does me no good!
So, I'm staying in my own lane and concentrating on my journey. That means getting my BA. Kudos to the multitudes with the Master's and Doctorate's, but diva is hitting the brakes once the BA is mine. I've had a lot of time (about a year after getting my Associate's) to be at peace with the fact that we all have our own paths, and staring too hard at other greener pastures leaves your own yard dry and dead.
Not only doing this for myself, but for my dearly departed mother. I have been feeling like I've had unfinished business for a minute. So here we are, about to finish it. I start April 8th!
NOW, for that second part. I've been sworn to secrecy. BUT, know this--it's a step outside my comfort zone for the greater good of a newer community of people. It's also a challenge to myself--the quiet little wallflower who likes to sit in back and sip tea. Having to stand up, face the music, and get busy will be interesting. Oh ho ho ho. ;)
But alas, here is my testament--chanting/prayer has done so much for me since I've started. Being with my group, my fam has changed things around. Looking forward to all the parts of my Human Revolution!
