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.
