I’ve been out of school for two years. I was organizing today, and ended up going through some of my old school stuff, including reading some short papers I wrote my last semester.
Wow. I was actually smart once. I actually came up with well-thought ideas.
I was good at school. I was good at work too. Now I just have to be good at being a mom. And it’s probably the hardest thing I have to do–because there aren’t set guidelines this time. There are no grades. No teacher. No boss. No assignments. I actually have to do it on my own.
But it’s nice to remind myself of what I did in life, to know I am good for something. I can do this.
