Life is Beautiful

In my 29 years I have taken many different roads to get where I am today. None of which were the ones that most people go down. They were bumpy, unkept and some I'm pretty sure were rural dirt roads. You know the ones that have addresses like county road 9 and the post office won't deliver there? Yes, I suck at following direction, even when someone tells me the road I should take. Even with this said; I wouldn't change a damn thing. I'm proud of the woman I am today. I might be a little very stubborn, a sometimes know it all, loud and blunt; but I do have a good heart when I want to. I can be compassionate when I feel like it's appreciated and if I love you enough God knows I would do anything for you. Even if I don't want to. I feel like those rural dirt roads shaped me more than the smooth freshly paved ones ever could have. I learned a lot about who I wanted to be and they gave me the outline of how to get there. It just took awhile to follow the directions to get here.

Now, what's the point in telling you all of this you ask? Well, because young grass hopper, I had a self realization moment the other day. My sister and I were talking and found out that amongst my MANY different possible career roads that I took, I quit one when I was ridiculously close to being accepted to the program. Or, at least applying. I was 4 classes short of applying to the nursing program. That's it. I talked it over with Kyle and my sister and I am going to finish that road. Crazy, right? I am so used to quitting things... I think it's fear of failure personally, but that's for another self realization blog. I know I can do this.. not to mention the money would be awesome, once I finally do finish. So, I have an appointment with an advisement counselor to talk it over with them and get moving.

I know you are all thinking, "But, Kassie what about becoming a author?!?!?" No need to worry, I still fully plan to get my english degree. I don't want to give up any of the things that I love. I love to write and take pictures. I fully intend to keep up with those things. I am no stranger to taking on more than any one person can conceivably handle.

I think I finally figured it out. I might have directions to get where I need to go. A way to have a job with importance and meaning. Hopefully I can follow the directions a little better. I guess there is always Google Maps, right?

Here is an image to show you how hopeful I am. Everything is beautiful right now.
