365 Things to Smile About Day 100. Finished!!
OK so I'm not done with school or anything like that, but I am done with my very last incompleted class! Last fall I had to take several incompletes because I didn't have the energy to do 18 credits in one semester. Today I turned in my last assignment and last extra credit assignment for my last incomplete class! I did a little happy dance and then saw how beautiful it was outside and decided to go for a nice long walk!
It's just a small step but a step that is actually taking away a lot of stress right now. I was so very frustrated when I had to stretch my program from one year to two years. I felt like I was failing even though I was just starting. But now I see that I just had to give myself a little more time to recover. I still get really impatient because I still have those days where I just can't do anything, my energy is gone and I have to push myself to get the smallest thing done. So a day like today when I can put that entire semester behind me is a very good day!
I feel like now I really am moving forward because there's nothing left that I have to finish that I couldn't finish before. So here's to baby steps in moving forward and not getting frustrated when the cancer and chemo effects rear their ugly little heads. I know I can do it. Maybe not like everybody else does it and maybe not in the timeframe everybody else does it but dang it, I AM GOING TO DO IT! This time next year all my classes will be done, my internship will be done and I will only be moving forward.
So long Services class! Goodbye incompletes! I'm moving on!
