Yep, that is quite a title and I could type forever on it! I won't though, as my children would say I am preaching and I don't want to do that!!
The one thing I have learned in life is that life is so short, and each day is a new one. We all have our daily routines and balancing of them: work, kids, husbands and significant others, but we also have ourselves to think about. That is one thing I didn't do too much of until my children were grown. Lets face it, I didn't have time for me. But, as the years passed by, I have had more time for myself. I do have a significant other in my life now and that has been the nicest change in my life these days. I still select some time during the week and weekend to satisfy my needs.
One of my needs is sewing. I love to sew. I started sewing when I was around seven years old when my grandmother was sewing at the kitchen table. I sat and watched, and she said one day, "go up in the attic and find some material you like, you can make a pair of shorts." So from that pair of shorts on, I was hooked. I loved it and have sewn clothes, curtains or whatever for years, and I don't plan on ever stopping. Learning is also like that in my life. I loved going to Granite State College. As I said in an earlier blog, it was the best decision I made, to go back to school as an adult learner taking adult education courses.
Yep, life is short so if you are thinking you may want to go back to school, just do it. You won't be sorry you did.
