“You can never be overdressed or over educated.”
– Oscar Wilde
I first started this blog to document a very transitional time in my life. Over the course of the past year, I’ve learned a lot about myself, my goals, and what I’d ideally like to be doing. Although it is always scary to live life for yourself instead of others and actively pursue your dreams, my experiences this year have definitely taught me that it’s worthwhile. That’s not to say that taking the road less traveled hasn’t come with it’s fair share of anxiety or challenges. In fact, I often felt discouraged and wanted to give up. However, I am glad to say that I didn’t and that I think my perseverance and hard work are finally starting to pay off. If you can remember, one of the things I wanted to do most (and still do) when I first started this blog in May was to be back in school. However, I often worried that I might not be accepted and that my life would remain forever in hiatus. Well, I am VERY happy to report that I was accepted into a postgraduate program in retail management and will be going back to school this fall. I guess that old adage is true – things often have a way of turning out as long as you are willing to work hard and never give up on your goals (and maintain a positive attitude.) After all luck is often disguised as hard work, and if you are willing to make your own opportunities and seize the ones that come your way – great things can and do happen! Of course it doesn’t hurt to have lots of loving and supportive people in your corner and I am blessed to have that in spades.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in school and how lucky I feel to have had this opportunity come my way. Being back in school really is a dream come true for me and I plan to make the most of it and work even harder towards achieving my dreams and goals.
I am really thanking my lucky stars right now and cannot wait to be a student again this September. Hopefully this post will inspire all of you to keep shooting for the moon. I know I will be. After all as Oscar Wilde once famously said, ” Shoot for the moon, if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
Here’s to a glittery future,
