Back to school and loving it!

Yesterday evening saw me back in a familiar tiered classroom seated in the last but one row  wondering who would sit next to me. Reaching a good half hour early, I helped myself to Pizza and soda that is a staple for the first day of term. Hugging and catching up with my classmates, I felt like I belonged. Wasn’t it just a year ago I was wondering if I would ever fit in?

It was fun to see the cohort grow together sharing life changes like engagements, promotions at work and career changes. I proudly showed off my girls’ pictures grinning from ear to ear and welcoming questions on the process. It felt like I had never been away.

Class started and the next couple of hours sped past in the blink of an eye. Driving back home, I mulled over the class, the classmates and the changing me. As much as I feared being able to handle work, home, kids and school, I walked away yesterday from class knowing anything is possible. I just had to want it badly. While I am not sure how the next few months will go, I do know there will be sacrifices I have to make.

What and when are the big questions.

  1. All the Best !!. Its hard. You will have happy moments and moments that will just make you want to cry out loud. Remember that you are a strong woman – juggling kids, home, work and studies is hard, but not impossible. Don’t forget to take care of your health in all this.

  2. We are all routing for you and want you to achieve what you deserve and want. Wishing you every success, keep the positive vibe that you have started with in mind, for the tough days to come – there is always calm after the storm/chaos.
