“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell
I’m done talking about Algebra. My life is bigger than the sum of my math struggles, which really aren’t that difficult. I’m just a big complainer. The neural connections formed, and I’m good now. The first exam was a breeze, and I will no longer obsess about it or bore my readers with it!
I had an epiphany from the most unlikely source tonight, and it made me realize that these prerequisites (like Algebra) are trivial. They aren’t obstacles to knock down or even jump over. They’re cracks in a sidewalk. They’re frost on a branch that will melt with the next season.
Five years ago, I had a plan for my life. The next 60 years were mapped out. Then, a chance meeting on an airplane turned that life upside down. And it’s okay! I didn’t have to let go of my plan, but I did. And now, in my 30’s I’m back in school working on something else. I know some of you now have some questions…and in time, I’ll probably blog more about the details of the last few sentences. I’m just happy to be where I am and making the journey with some amazing people.
