As I prepare to start a new chapter in my life I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for all the blessings in my life. I have been blessed with a supportive and loving family.
It was all the love and support that allowed me to grow as a person and complete my educational goals. When I enrolled in a local community college many years ago I thought I knew what I wanted to do.
I thought that I wanted to be a paralegal. At 19 years old I thought this was the right path for me.
When I finally completed my Associate’s degree I discovered that I was a different person and I wasn’t sure that I wanted to work in a law office. A few years later I enrolled in a program at a local college.
Now, I was sure that I wanted a double major in history and political science. One year later, I transferred to another school.
Once again I changed my major.
I changed my major to English.
I have learned that I am constantly growing, changing, and evolving. The goals I set today may change tomorrow.
One day, I had an assignment to write a piece of flash fiction and I found myself very happy. The biggest challenge I have had over the years is coming to terms with calling myself a writer. Now, I call myself a writer.
Today, I committed myself to a new chapter of my life.
I am starting chapter one of a new book.
The ending is not quite ironed out yet but the words have been set down on the page.Here are some links to some of the unexpected turns in my story:
