Back to reality, papers are due and finals have to be taken. The holiday was quaint and intimate, with a little disappointment. But I like to say you can’t please everyone, and some hearts are going to be broken.
Thanksgiving with The Judgmental Family:
The pressure of trying to live up to everyone’s standard is enough to make the dinner a bit awkward. But that’s only for a few family members; the others are full of encouragement, advice and accepting of who I’ve become.
The Big Talk ” Your still in school?, when you gone graduate child?” lol So hilarious to tell them I’ve already graduated, but I voluntarily went back, and I’m currently questioning what the hell did I get myself into? But behind my doubt of my success my family still encouraged me to continue-on and don’t be afraid to take a break if needed.
-Thanks I appreciate that.
The View was breathtaking. A change of my surrounding was exactly what the doctor order. Walking the land and Conversing with my cousin about the past, present and the future was enlightened, while at the same-time a reminder that life is short, and you never stop learning.
“To stop learning, is to stop growing. To stop growing, it to stop living”
Though there’s a 11 year age difference, we were able to connect and communicate as if there was no time difference. I guess the fact that were both social workers had something to do with that…lol (accepting people for who they are)
Discussing our family legacy and the history behind our ancestors was more heart-warming than Thanksgiving dinner.
A wise-man once told me: In-order to understand my story, you have to understand my struggle.
In all a refresher of where I come from, and what I stand for…is what Thanksgiving was to me this year.
My dreams don’t seem attainable. Like I can see them but I can’t reach them. I can only see what my hands can touch and nothing more. I’ve lost my motivation to do anything. Lord help me find my way. Anything to get my mojo back. Peace & love.
I can relate. I’ll keep you in my prayers.
Attempting not to lose my mind
I’m not there any more, just graduated this summer. What year are you?
