Five years ago I dropped out of college to have children & get married. The last 2 years I have thought about returning to college to finish my degree. Well I finally enrolled and even got enough grant money to pay for a couple of semesters I returned at a very slowww pace only taking two online courses - now I cant find any time in my schedule to commit to my studies… In my mind I really pictured having moments thru out the day to get my assignments done. My husband works long hours M thru F and I work every weekend 12 hour shifts.
I guess I didnt realize how much of myself I give to my family… I really thought I would have a few hours a day to do something for myself. In a way Im glad it didnt work out. I would rather give my children my time and energy than anything else in the world. I am coming to terms with my decision to put this on the back burner or perhaps for once in my life try to accept myself and not think I have to have a degree to be someone. Im not 100% sure I wanted to return to school after having children. I am one of those people who has to at least give it a try or I will always wonder what if??? :shrug:
