“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.”
Now is the only time that I have. Now is the best time to go dream chasing and goal digging. Now is the time I will do something for me. Now is the time I will go back to school. I am not ready. The timing could be better. But I am done waiting to be ‘ready’.
I have been throwing around going back to school for about 2 years in my head. Obviously, just thinking about it hasn’t got me to where I wanted to be! So, I took a big leap and enrolled!
About December 20th I decided that 2018 was going to be a year for me to be accomplished. Since having children my life has done a complete 180. Before kids I was a straight A college student, enrolled in 24 hours, earning 2 bachelors degrees in 2 years, partying my fair share, rodeoing, being a fitness instructor on the side, tutoring high school kids as a job, and whatever else I could squeeze in (I have no idea where all that time came from). Now I can barely keep a house clean and two kids happy all day. I used to feel so accomplished. I was ‘going places’.
However, the only place I went was straight to mom-ville (don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom but I think all moms should have something going on for themselves).
So, This year I am starting something for myself. I am enrolled in a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner course through the Nutritional Therapy Association.
In 9 months I will be a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
Surely if I did 9 months of being pregnant (twice) I can do 9 months of school! Right?!
I am excited to begin a journey that I have been wanting to step into for a long time! I am passionate about nutrition and I feel like this is my perfect fit. This course is centered around the teachings/studies of Weston A. Price and holistic nutrition, two things I can’t get enough of! I also feel like it is something I can support a family with, use as a career almost anywhere, and help my friends and family.
Blogs may get a little scarce as school begins Feb. 12th but I assure you I am still here! I will update as I go and learn and hopefully share some of my newfound knowledge!
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
