Finding new inspiration for studying…

3 Comments

When I started studying in 2008 I was motivated.  I was determined to be different, to show the world that even though I fell pregnant at a very young age, that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.  I told myself that I needed to work extra hard as a single mom to provide Logan with everything other couples with their planned pregnancies, steady careers and settled lives can provide their babies with.

I was determined to lead by example and teach Logan what it means to work for what you want and how to succeed.

When I wrote my exam this morning, I was thinking of that.  The truth is, this year has been hectic.  It has been an awesome year for us as a family.  But I have neglected my studies this year and that is okay, as long as I can find that spark of motivation again.  The scary part is, I need a new reason to study – the old “show the world single moms rock” isn’t my mission statement any longer.

The real question is, what is the new mission statement when it comes to studying?

  1. You actually WROTE an exam NOW! Good heavens – WELL DONE!!!

    I skipped this semester and am not at all excited to start again but I WANT to!!

    • I requested from the university to allow me to write the exams this semester instead of last – thinking I would have a healthy baby and I would have time to study. Which I didn’t – so I am not expecting very much result-wise!

  2. Oh my point was – I need so still find my inspiration!
