Friday was a yoyo inspector day. One of the things we discussed was how one event can alter the course of your life forever. With that being the rule of thumb, I must admit I've had many defining moments. With out them, I have to wonder who and what I might be today. Without them, I believe I would have been a little more focused and wouldn't have spent a lifetime aimlessly wandering, but I like to think of myself as a late bloomer who will eventually find her niche.

Ten years ago, I was in my senior year when my father first got ill. At that time, I was working full time and carrying a full load at school. Because my father and I were business partners, I had to keep the business going by becoming two people in his absence which left me virtually no time for school. Although I made the right decision, it was a decision that made going back to school just a pipe dream.

Now, I'm in the process of trying to make it happen for myself again. I'm trying to get that wind back in my sails. I'm trying to regain that "I can do anything I set my mind to" attitude. Perhaps this time I'll set a goal for myself and actually reach it.

Gratitude statement: Although skeptical at first about whether therapy would help me, I have to admit it has led me to a place I doubt I would have gotten to by myself. For that I have to say, "thank you Amelia".
