Moving forward…

and not back.

I consider that my biggest accomplishment these days.  Of course forward movement is to be applauded anytime.  But now?  Now it’s an Oscar-worthy performance.

I’d like to thank the Academy… blah blah blah… yeah, that.

But I am moving forward.  Mostly.  With two more classes finished this week.  Yay.  No really, it’s more like YAY!  Because I’m really glad to be done with both of them.  And I only have three weeks left of my other two Summer classes.  Also, YAY!  But at the same time there’s a little sadness because this is my last Summer in school. And when I started this crazy adventure back in ’10 it felt like 2012 was years away.


Light years.

And now we’re over half way through that far-off year and I’m five months away from Graduation.  Wait, let me type that again… five months.  That’s such a small amount of time.  Five months.  I couldn’t have a baby in that time.  But I will finish a degree.


And already I’m plotting and planning the best possible course for my Masters.  And to all of you who just went “SMH”  I reply “YOLO”.  So there.  Oh, and really, was there ever any doubt?  No, not so much.  Not if you know me anyway.  But, yes, it’s next on my bucket list.  And right behind that is finding someone else to pay for it… LOL.  We’ve already got student debt… don’t need more.

But that’s the future.  Today, right now, I’m living this moment.  This goal accomplished.  This achievement.  Because that’s how you do this.  One step at a time.  One class at a time.  One day at a time.  One moment at a time.

One foot in front of the other as I live my Life.

So live your life too.  Celebrate your accomplishments.  Even if they’re small.  Because small leads to large.  Life is made of both.  The little and the big moments.  That we live as we move forward.  Forward into the future.  Which is terribly uncertain and certainly not guaranteed, but it is the future.  And that’s where we’re going.

Whether we like it or not.
