When I started studying in 2008 I was motivated. I was determined to be different, to show the world that even though I fell pregnant at a very young age, that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. I told myself that I needed to work extra hard as a single mom to provide Logan with everything other couples with their planned pregnancies, steady careers and settled lives can provide their babies with.
I was determined to lead by example and teach Logan what it means to work for what you want and how to succeed.
When I wrote my exam this morning, I was thinking of that. The truth is, this year has been hectic. It has been an awesome year for us as a family. But I have neglected my studies this year and that is okay, as long as I can find that spark of motivation again. The scary part is, I need a new reason to study – the old “show the world single moms rock” isn’t my mission statement any longer.
The real question is, what is the new mission statement when it comes to studying?
